A: If suing, you expose your entire mental health history and medical records.

Truly, what are the monetary value of the damages?

A: I'm sorry for your traumatic experience. Another consideration here is that this might not be the type of case that an attorney would take on a contingency basis the way they would with a motor vehicle personal injury case. That could possibly mean paying an attorney out of pocket, win or lose. You could consult with a New Mexico attorney, and that could help you make a decision. Good luck
