Deadly Car Crashes in New Mexico
Driving is one of the most dangerous things that we do almost every single day. In New Mexico, one out of every 130 car accidents results in a fatality. 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 in the state.
When another person's negligence causes the death of a loved one, it's natural for surviving family members to seek justice. Wrongful death claims are among the most difficult types of cases to resolve. A wrongful death lawsuit could help families get the money they need to cover funeral and burial costs, medical bills, mental anguish, and other costs associated with a fatal accident. Wrongful death claims are complicated by a number of laws, including strict statutes of limitations and eligibility requirements. That is why having a qualified personal injury lawyer in Albuquerque on your side is beneficial.
