Welcome To The Law Office Of John Frank Higgins

I am attorney John Frank Higgins and welcome to my website. As a native New Mexican committed to serving my community, my goal is to provide useful information and possibly some guidance to educate you in some of the many areas of New Mexico law. Although our office has helped recover millions of dollars in settlements and compensation through the trial and settlement process, we strive to maintain a smaller, more personalized legal experience.

Although this website should not be relied upon as direct legal advice as it does not form an attorney-client relationship with my office, it is my hope that the information contained will give you an overview of the areas of law that I practice. I will continue to submit blogs and other entries that I hope you will find useful in the days and years to come.

Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions about any of the areas of law that I practice or need a consultation. Good luck and God bless.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system.

    What are compensatory damages?

    Punitive damages are money awarded on top of compensatory damages, and they surpass the determined monetary value of your loss. These kinds of damages are rarely awarded, and their purpose is to deter the defendant from similar actions in the future. What counts as an act deserving of punitive damages is often vague and arbitrary, but fraud, bad faith, and an intent to harm usually make the list. For example, a car company that knowingly neglected safety issues in its car’s steering wheel could be ordered to pay punitive damages to the family whose son died in a car crash as a result of the faulty wheel.
