Deadly Rollover Crashes in New Mexico
When a car flips over, the occupants are likely to suffer serious injuries. Rollover accidents claim the lives of a disproportionate number of people in the United States. Unrestrained occupants were involved in nearly 69 percent of rollover deaths in 2010. Rollovers claimed the lives of about 7,600 people in that year. Despite accounting for less than 2% of all traffic accidents, rollovers were involved in nearly 35% of fatal collisions in 2010.
Wrongful death lawsuits are intended to compensate surviving family members when a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence. Obtaining that compensation, on the other hand, is frequently easier said than done. Just because the victim died does not absolve the at-fault party of responsibility. Insurance companies for those who are at fault will frequently try to shift blame for a fatal accident. Instead of paying compensation to the family members of the deceased after a fatal car accident, the defendant should pay compensation to the family members of the deceased to assist with accident-related expenses. Only a personal injury lawyer in Albuquerque with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims can help you achieve this.
