Deadly Car Accidents in New Mexico

Gallup, NM - Deadly Vehicle Collision Closes All Lanes on NM-602In New Mexico, car accidents are a major problem. More than 4.5 million medical visits and more than $460 billion in annual costs for the country were attributed to vehicle accident injuries in 2019. Many people sustain injuries in traffic accidents every year around the state, and data indicate that the situation is only becoming worse with time. If you want to be sure you can get full and fair compensation for your losses, you should speak with a lawyer to see if you have a case for a personal injury claim.

When someone dies as a result of the carelessness, recklessness, negligence, or intentional behavior of another person or entity, it is referred to as a "wrongful death." A lot of wrongful death situations call for quick action. Without locating defendants and safeguarding evidence, full financial recovery may not be possible. You need a wrongful death attorney to make sure your case is treated with the respect and care it deserved and to ensure you obtain maximum compensation. 

Both personal injury and wrongful death cases focus on negligence, and they have many things in common. There are a few notable exceptions, though. Personal injury claims solely concern an injury to the party, which is the most obvious distinction between them and wrongful death claims. The living family members of the victim may be eligible for compensation for specific losses.
