Fatal Auto Accidents in New Mexico
Driving is one of the most dangerous things that we do almost every single day. Statistics show that a fatality occurs in one out of every 130 car accidents in New Mexico. Two of the most common causes of serious car accidents in the state are distracted driving and speeding. A car accident occurs every 26 minutes, according to the New Mexico Department of Transportation, and over 25,000 people are injured in over 40,000 car accidents each year.
When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed to help the surviving family members. Obtaining that compensation is, unfortunately, frequently easier said than done. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the wrongdoer of responsibility. Insurance companies for those who are at fault in a fatal accident frequently try to shift blame. The person or entity responsible for the untimely death of a loved one should compensate the deceased's family to help with accident-related expenses. This is something that only a Las Cruces personal injury accident lawyer with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims can do.
