New Mexico Personal Injury Lawyer

At the law firm of Robins Cloud LLP, our philosophy is simple: we strive to do what is right for you. We work hard to provide you with the results you want to achieve. We have no agenda of our own, no interest in forcing you to accept unfair settlements to get your case resolved hastily, and no interest in going to trial to egotistically demonstrate our skills.

When you come to our law firm to handle your personal injury case, we will start by listening to you. After we have learned about your case, we will guide you to the options available, carefully informing you about the costs and benefits of each.

We Guide. You Direct. We Take Action.

In 2013, we were recognized by a prestigious publication, The National Law Journal, as having one of the “The Top 100 Verdicts of 2013.” This honor was given for the significant verdict we achieved for our New Mexico client who was killed when a tanker-trailer hit his car. We fought and ultimately won the case, proving that the truck driver had not been properly trained, that maintenance records on the truck were not properly kept and that the driver was fatigued.

We're a nationally recognized as a firm that is skilled at handling difficult mesothelioma cases. Our clients include not only the men and women who were exposed to asbestos from traditional workplace exposures, such as on construction sites, but the many mesothelioma victims who suffered as a result of rare exposures: a dentist who made gold dental crowns, a copy machine repairman and a gentleman who worked in a pencil factory making erasers.

Take a mental journey into the past, if you will, to a simpler place and time. The area we now call home was inhabited mostly by livestock with only about 12 people per square mile. Those few people here worked hard and often had little to show for it other than the satisfaction coming from an honest day's work. Physically, life was much more difficult, but decency and respect for your fellow man were words to live by. Laws were clear-cut, and punishment for violating them was swift and brutal.

Now, fast-forward to the present. The population of New Mexico is more than two million and rising. We essentially have the entire world at our fingertips and live the life of luxury compared to our forefathers, yet people's mindsets have changed. Those principles once held dear have become optional to many. Laws are still in place, but they're far more complicated than in the past. Justice often takes months, or even years, to uphold.

Why We're Here

At the law firm of Robins Cloud LLP, our philosophy could be compared to that of days long gone: we strive to do what is right for you. It's a simple, direct, and honest statement. Our state has the highest accidental death rate in the nation and hovers near the top of the list for non-fatal injuries. These cases come about due to a number of different situations, but proving who is at fault is equally difficult across the board unless you have a New Mexico personal injury attorney fighting for you.

Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle accidents are the leading cause of injuries and unexpected deaths in our state. Getting medical attention for yourself and anyone else who needs it should be your primary concern following a crash, but the facts surrounding the accident should also be recorded. Pictures, personal information of all involved, as well as the contact information for any witnesses, along medical care records, are all vital to building a strong case. While our team has an extensive network of experts who can secure all this information later on, those crucial details are more vivid in everyone's memory during the moments after the incident.

In cases where a tractor-trailer is involved, death is far more likely to be a result, and injuries tend to be much more severe. Those trucks have 13 times more weight behind them than your average SUV. You may be the victim rather than the culprit in this type of scenario, but you still have the right to remain silent. You also have the right to refuse to sign anything without legal representation. Don't make a statement or give the trucking company's representatives your signature. Bring your case to us, and let one of our Albuquerque personal injury lawyers handle matters from there.

Areas We Practice

Serious Personal Injury When an injury is causing severe pain, time off work, or potentially lasting results, it’s considered a serious personal injury. We specialize in seeking justice for those facing serious injury. We help you recover what is rightfully owed and assure you return to your life.

Wrongful Death The loss of a loved is possibly the most difficult thing one must endure. When that loss comes as a price for another’s negligence, it makes the event all the more painful. We help people seek justice and closure.

Trucking Accidents There are few things more freighting than a the impact of a large truck. Trucking accident can be far more severe than typical motor vehicle collision. And they require a more experienced attorney that understands how liability is determined. We have that experience.

Nursing Home Abuse Our elderly are some of the most vulnerable of our citizens. Unfortunately that sometimes leads to neglect and abuse at the very hands of those we trusted to provide for them. We help those who have been victimized.

Motorcycle Accidents Motorcycle riders are far more exposed and vulnerable than the typical victim of a motor vehicle accident. Injuries can be far more severe, and liability laws can be trickier. You need an attorney with the right experience to help you navigate those waters. We have that experience.

Albuquerque Personal Injury Attorney

Our experience with pharmaceutical litigation includes our current representation of thousands of women in transvaginal mesh litigation, representation of thousands of young men in Risperdal litigation and previous representation of several State Attorney General Offices in multi-million dollar litigation against pharmaceutical giant, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), for defrauding the states’ Medicaid programs through false and misleading marketing of Avandia.

We are proud to have represented the family of a man who was killed at work cleaning underneath a dock leveler. Representing this man’s bereaved family, we sued five defendants. Ultimately we settled the case for a significant amount, helping not only this family but also protecting countless workers who may have been equally at risk.

Mesothelioma Litigation

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer most often caused by exposure to Asbestos, a dangerous and toxic substance. How there are limited treatment options, there is not true cure for Mesothelioma.

There is not amount of money that will lessen the suffering and affects of this terrible infliction, but a high settlement can help the family during the financial struggles that accompany it. Robins Cloud attorneys have decades of experience helping mesothelioma victims, and their families file their claim and gaining them the maximum settlement possible.

On-the-Job Injuries

We see an endless string of clients who've worked hard every day to support their families only to be injured as a result of their efforts and no longer able to do their jobs. This changes not only the victim's life but those of his or her family as well. In some instances, these are unavoidable accidents but, for the most part, they happen due to carelessness. Someone gets in a hurry or employers cut corners in order to save money, making the working environment unsafe for everyone.

Employers are required by law to carry insurance for such situations, but some still manage to get by without doing so. Others are reluctant to file claims on their worker's compensation policies for fear of their premiums increasing. Either way, they'll often do everything in their power to place blame on the employee in order to avoid any related expenses or penalties, and they'll more than likely be backed by legal representation of their own.

We're here to make sure none of our area's hard-working citizens don't slip through those cracks. If you've been injured on the job and your employer is trying to give you the runaround when it comes to medical bills, therapy, lost wages, and other hardships, come to us for help. We'll use our knowledge of local laws and victims' rights to get you the compensation you deserve. They'll fight to avoid paying you, so let our New Mexico personal injury attorneys wage the battle with you.

Nursing Home Abuse

It's a reality that many people cannot take care of themselves as they grow older. The need for assisted living is common. And it can cause strain and guild in the loved ones that need to entrust the well being of their family to nursing home and assisted living facilities. It's a sad truth that often it's the our or citizens that are injured. It's also a sad truth that New Mexico has some of the highest levels of reported nursing home abuse in the nation. Our loved ones who can no longer care for themselves should never be at risk.

Sadly, nursing home abuse is on the rise in the form of neglect, sexual exploitation, lack of adequate care, and even financial extortion. These victims often can't speak for themselves, but our New Mexico personal injury lawyers stand ready to be their voices.

Fortunately, New Mexico also has some tough laws to help control this issue. Our attorneys our experienced at the specific details that go into protecting the elderly in these cases, and helping them receive the maximum amount of recovery to assure not only their well being, but to continue setting the precedent that our older generation deserve better treatment.

Whistleblower, Government Fraud

Our country is filled with good Samaritans who want to expose injustice and make the world a better place, but they're often afraid of the potential consequences. Those who do come forward are sometimes met with job loss, harassment, and other negative impacts afterward regardless of the laws in place to protect them. "No good deed goes unpunished" as the popular theory states, but those who strive to make positive changes in the way the system operates should be upheld and honored rather than punished.

Many fail to realize protection is available for those who bring to light the wrongdoings of others. Our Albuquerque personal injury lawyers can offer advice on situations like these and help you maintain your confidentiality if you've witnessed this type of activity. You may also be surprised to learn you could be compensated for your information. Contact us from a private phone or Internet connection, and let us know what you've seen and heard.


Discrimination is a term New Mexico personal injury attorneys hear all too often, and it's not just related to ethnicity. Though country of origin and skin color do still come into play, clients come to us who've been treated unfairly because of their age, gender, and even pregnancy. As is the case with our other areas of focus, laws have been set forth to protect our nation's citizens from this type of behavior but, again, wrongdoing has to be proven beyond reasonable doubt.

We have experience in this arena as well. Talk to us, and give us the details surrounding your unwarranted dismissal or being passed up for a raise or promotion. Though you probably don't want to work for those employers who treated you in this manner, our team can take the matter to court to secure restitution for lost wages, emotional anguish, and other types of suffering. Don't let an employer get away with treating others unfairly. Let us stand up for you and guarantee they're not allowed to do this to others in the future.
