New Mexico Wrongful Death Compensation Cases
Every wrongful death case is unique to the circumstances that led to the
accident. Depending on who is the decedent and who caused the incident,
you may be able to seek compensation that covers a range of damages.
When building your case, we will consider the following damages:
- Burial and funeral costs
- Medical costs related to accident
- Wages or income the decedent would have eventually earned
- Emotional support or companionship lost
- Loss of potential inheritance
- Decedent’s pain and suffering due to accident
As with many other states, New Mexico State law allows close relatives
to file a wrongful death case. However, if no direct representative will
file a case, the court may actually choose someone else to do so. In some
cases, this could be a close colleague or more distant relative.
Free Consultation When You Need It
Our Albuquerque wrongful death lawyers do not want to rush you into any
decisions, but you should be aware that you are only permitted a certain
amount of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit; once that time expires,
you will be unable to take legal action. If you would like to know more
about your legal options but are not quite ready to commit, we encourage
you to request a
free case evaluation with our
personal injury attorney. We can sit down with you and listen closely to your claims.
