Can I call to tell you about my case?
How much does it cost to hire Stewart + Harmonson?
Nothing. Personal injury lawyers like the truck accident and oilfield accident lawyers at Stewart + Harmonson charge what is called a “contingency” fee, or a percentage of the total fee won for your case. A contingency fee means that we don’t get paid until you get paid.
Do I need a truck accident attorney after a wreck in New Mexico?
The aftermath of a truck accident can often feel overwhelming. But our experienced truck accident attorneys at Stewart + Harmonson can help walk you through every step of the claims process. We have over 40 combined years of experience helping survivors of catastrophic truck accidents and their families obtain the compensation they deserve to move forward with their lives, and we’re here to help you do the same.
What information do I need before I call an attorney about my truck accident?
Once you get in touch with a New Mexico truck accident attorney, you will need to provide them with all of the information you have about the accident, including your recollection of what happened, photos and information collected at the scene, the police report, contact information of the other drivers and/or witnesses, and any medical documentation of your injuries.
How long does a truck accident lawsuit take?
The more complicated the truck accident case is, the longer it could take. More straightforward cases may only take a few months. A case with more serious injuries, or with multiple parties involved, could take much longer. Any case that goes to trial, however, could take several years to complete. Contact our truck accident attorneys today to get an idea of what your options are with your specific case.
What should I do after being in a truck accident?
Document evidence at the scene, including:
- Personal notes
- Contact information of any witnesses
File a police report and notify your insurance company in order to create an official record of the accident. Then, get in touch with a New Mexico truck accident attorney who can help you investigate truck driver hour logs, dashboard cameras, and other details that will be helpful for your case.
How is fault proven in an oilfield accident?
Working with a New Mexico oilfield accident attorney can help you prove that an accident was due to the negligent behavior of someone other than yourself. Some of these types of negligent oilfield accidents include:
- Defective equipment and machinery
- Personal protection equipment failures
- Heavy equipment collapses & dropped objects
- Hazardous material exposure
What damages can I recover in an oilfield accident case?
Here are some potential damages our team at Stewart + Harmonson can help you try to recover to move forward with your life:
- Medical expenses
- Past and future lost wages
- Reduced quality of life
- Emotional distress
Won’t I receive workers’ compensation if I’m injured in the oilfield?
Maybe. Unfortunately, our experience has taught us that oil companies often try to avoid taking responsibility. Here are some of the ways they might try to discredit your claim:
- Taking recorded statements without the presence of a lawyer
- Hiring private investigators to follow and record the injured worker
- Blaming the injured worker for failing to “stop work” or perform a complete hazard analysis before starting the job
- Obtaining conflicting statements from co-workers or “experts” hired by the company after the accident
There are third parties involved that could be at fault and do not fall within the workers’ compensation system. Contact Stewart + Harmonson to discuss your specific case.

We can meet virtually via Zoom or a phone call, or host you for an in-person meeting at our Las Cruces office. When catastrophe strikes, we will come to your location to meet with you and your loved ones and begin our rapid response investigation.
