Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Albuquerque
In 2017, New Mexico had the highest pedestrian fatality rate in the country. Going into the 2018 holiday season, there were 82 pedestrian fatalities reported in the state. This was an increase from the previous two years.
Wrongful death lawsuits are meant to compensate surviving family members when someone else causes the death of a loved one. Just because the victim died, that doesn’t mean that the at-fault party should be off the hook. The defendant must instead pay compensation to the deceased’s family members.
Bringing a lawsuit is probably the last thing on your mind after losing a family member. Will Ferguson & Associates understands that no amount of compensation will bring back a loved one. Call us today at (505) 243-5566 to discuss your case with a New Mexico wrongful death attorney.
