Focused on Recovery

How Can We Help?


When you are injured due to someone’s negligence, the last thing you want to be bothered with is the stress of dealing with medical bills and insurance companies. Duran & McDonald will immediately begin working to ensure that you can focus on your recovery.

Injuries negatively impact many areas of your life. You may be dealing with long-term treatment or disabilities, missing out on things you enjoyed before the injury or loss of wages and an overall reduction in your quality of life. When you hire Duran & McDonald we will immediately handle the details of your case and shield you from communication that can often seem overwhelming during your recovery.

Being represented by an attorney early on can make all the difference to recover what you are entitled to receiving.



Is it true that I should get three to four times my medical bills?2020-12-01T17:23:04+00:00

Many people will tell you that there is a formula for your recovery. If it was only that easy. Your recovery is not based on a formula but rather, on several factors like:
– The impact the injuries had on your life
– The long-term impact of your injuries and prognosis
– The medical treatment that you endured
– The percentage that your actions led to the injuries or damages you have suffered

The purpose of any recovery is to compensate you for your loss and try to put you back into the position you were in prior to the injuries occurring. Duran & McDonald will include you on all of our legal analysis based on our experience, knowledge and training so that you understand what you are entitled to receive.

How much do I have to pay for an attorney?2020-12-01T17:22:51+00:00

If you speak with an attorney who requests money up front, WALK AWAY! Most, if not all, attorneys who represent people who have been injured by someone else will not require any money up front. Duran & McDonald will sign a written, easy to read, agreement with you that outlines our payment plan. We receive a percentage of the recovery at the end of the case. That allows you to be represented without the need for out of pocket expenses and to pursue what you are legally entitled to.

How much do I have to pay for a consultation with your office?2020-12-01T17:23:15+00:00

Our attorneys will spend time with you to go over your options and you can decide whether we are the right fit for you. Choosing the right attorney is an important choice. You want to make sure you have access to the attorney and not just support staff. You want to make sure that the attorney you choose understands your story in a meaningful way so that you are not “just another case.” Duran & McDonald will do what we can to make sure you understand your case, how we can best communicate with each other and make sure our attorneys are accessible to you.

The insurance company for the person who caused my injuries already offered me money, why do I need an attorney?2020-12-01T17:22:31+00:00

There is an old saying, if something is too good to be true then it probably is. Often, when you accept money without speaking with an attorney beforehand you are receiving less than what you may be entitled to recover. Also, when you accept money from an insurance company you may be closing the door to other compensation by the person at fault or even by your own insurance company. Call Duran & McDonald today and we will be more than happy to discuss your options with you before you accept any money.

I was injured and I am not sure if it was my fault of someone else’s fault, does that mean I can’t recover anything for my injuries?2020-12-01T17:22:21+00:00

New Mexico allows injured people to recover for the damages they suffered even if they were partially at fault. The recovery may be reduced depending on that person’s percentage of fault. Fighting for the correct percentage of fault is often dealt with in litigation and may require hiring experts to testify. Duran & McDonald will discuss your options with you and has the appropriate resources to review your case with an expert in order to fight for what is fair for you.

I’ve been injured, when should I contact an attorney?2020-12-01T17:22:09+00:00

The simple answer is that if you want the best representation and to increase your chances of getting fair compensation for your losses, it’s best to have an attorney working by your side at the earliest possible time after your injury.

Once you are injured due to the fault of someone else, it often starts the ball rolling of attorneys and insurance companies whose job it is to ensure the person at fault does not compensate you for your injuries and loss. It is important that you do not go into it alone. Contact our office today and we can immediately begin to guide you through the maze of medical bills and insurance adjusters.

Let Us Help


Many people who suffer injuries cannot afford the attorney fees necessary to pursue their case. In order to make legal representation available to those who otherwise could not afford it, we provide contingency fee structures in personal injury cases where attorney fees are paid only after the client has recovered compensation.
