Deadly Semi-Truck Accidents in New Mexico
In 2018, around 67% of those killed in semi-truck accidents nationwide were traveling in passenger vehicles. A total of 4,136 people were killed in crashes involving commercial vehicles that year. More than 500,000 18-wheeler collisions are reported annually.
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.
