Fatal Car Accidents in New Mexico

Magdalena, NM - Passenger Basil Cox Killed in Car Crash on US-60

New Mexico is the site of hundreds of deadly car accidents each year and has one of the highest percentages of drunk driving, distracted driving, and speeding-related fatalities in 2021 when compared to other states. Across the state, there are many more automobile accidents than simply in the major cities. The state’s long highways are commonly the site of serious collisions that can leave people with life-threatening injuries. 

While it is never going to bring back a family member, financial compensation may be able to help you and your family resume your usual lives after the loss of a loved one. Compensation may include payment for burial costs and medical bills. It might also replace any inheritance or income that you are now missing due to the loss of your family member. It may also provide you with cash compensation for the loss of your loved one’s company and the suffering are you being made to endure.
