Fatal Auto Accidents in New Mexico
In New Mexico, one out of every 130 car accidents results in a fatality. A variety of factors can contribute to serious car accidents in the state, but two of the most common are driver distraction and speeding. A car accident occurs every 26 minutes in New Mexico, according to the state's Department of Transportation. Recovering from a sudden traffic accident takes time and effort on part of the injured party.
When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed to compensate the surviving family members. On the other hand, getting that compensation is frequently easier said than done. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the wrongdoer of responsibility. When a fatal accident occurs, insurance companies for those who are at fault frequently try to shift blame. Instead of compensating the deceased's family members after a fatal car accident, the defendant should compensate the deceased's family members to help with accident-related expenses. Only an Albuquerque personal injury lawyer with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims can assist you.
