Deadly Rollover Accidents in New Mexico

New Mexico 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.
