Deadly Rollover Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - One Killed, One Hurt in Rollover Crash at I-40 & 98th StTraumatic injuries from a violent rollover crash might include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, broken bones, or even death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rollovers happen in around 2% of all car accidents. Statistics from 2014 show that 66% of all rollover fatalities were caused by unbuckled passengers at the time of the incident. An SUV can actually increase the danger of getting involved in a rollover, despite the fact that slightly more than 45% of Americans believe these cars are safer than a typical passenger car when traveling.

Wrongful death is the term used to describe when someone dies as a result of the carelessness, recklessness, negligence, or purposeful behavior of another person or entity. Many wrongful death cases necessitate swift action. Full financial recovery is frequently impossible without discovering defendants and protecting evidence.

Cases involving personal injury and wrongful death both center on negligence, and they share many characteristics. There are, however, a few significant differences. The most evident distinction between personal injury claims and wrongful death claims is that personal injury claims only involve an injury to the party. The victim's living relatives may be entitled to compensation for specific damages.
