Deadly Head-On Crashes in New Mexico

Tucumcari, NM - Kayla Corrales Dies in Head-On Collision on I-40Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of accidents, with a fatality rate of nearly 58%. Head-on collisions account for more than 10% of all road fatalities each year despite accounting for less than 2% of all documented vehicle accidents. Even at low speeds, veering into oncoming traffic puts you at risk of colliding head-on with another vehicle.

Wrongful death lawsuits are filed when a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. Getting that compensation, on the other hand, is frequently easier said than done. The victim's death does not absolve the perpetrator of responsibility. Insurance companies for those who are at fault frequently try to shift blame after a fatal accident. Rather than compensating the family members of the deceased after a fatal car accident, the defendant should compensate the family members to assist with accident-related expenses. Only a Tucumcari car crash lawyer with years of experience helping wrongful death victims can help you.
