Deadly Rollover Accidents in New Mexico
The chance of being fatally injured in a rollover crash is extremely high. Despite making up less than 2.1% of reported passenger vehicle accidents in 2010, rollovers were involved in roughly 35% of deadly collisions that year. More than 7,600 people lose their lives in rollover crashes in 2010, and statistics reveal that roughly 69% of rollover fatalities that year were unrestrained at the time of impact.
New Mexico wrongful death lawsuits are intended to compensate surviving family members when the negligent actions of another party cause the death of a loved one. Just because the victim died, that does not mean that the at-fault party should be off the hook. The defendant must instead pay compensation to the family members of the deceased after a deadly New Mexico car crash. This can only be accomplished by partnering with a law firm with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims.
Bringing a lawsuit is probably the last thing on your mind after losing a family member, but you do not have to pursue a claim on your own. Will Ferguson & Associates understands that no amount of compensation will bring back a loved one. Our legal team will fight to make sure that you recover the compensation you deserve after losing a loved one.
