How An Attorney Assists Families in New Mexico Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Wondering exactly how your New Mexico wrongful death lawyer will be able to fight for your compensation? The intricacies will be different for every unique case, but the personal injury claim process is generally the same.

First, you will have your free consultation, where you will provide the details of your case. During the consultation, your attorney will ask if you have collected any evidence to support your claims. This is why it is helpful to collect any artifacts from your loved one’s accident, like:

  • Witness statements
  • Doctor’s notes
  • A log detailing how your loved one’s condition deteriorated
  • Photos from the scene of the accident
  • Anything else that pertains to the accident and wrongful death

From there, your attorney will do their own investigation to determine exactly who was liable for the wrongful death.

Depending on what type of accident caused the death, this could be any party involved. In some cases, a third party may have even played a role. That’s why it’s so important to hire an attorney for your family’s wrongful death claim. Without one, you may miss an important piece of the puzzle, and therefore miss out on substantial compensation.

Compensation from a Wrongful Death Claim

Financial compensation can help you and your family work towards returning to your day to day lives after the loss of a loved one. Compensation may cover the cost of medical expenses and funeral costs. It can also replace the income that your loved one would have earned, or inheritance they may have missed out on. It also can provide a monetary amount for the loss of your loved one’s companionship, as well as the pain and suffering of their closest relatives.

New Mexico’s wrongful death statute of limitations dictates that family members have three years to file their wrongful death claim. So, don’t wait to begin the process, as this time may pass quickly during such a difficult period. Let Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys lift some of the weight off of your shoulders by seeking out compensation on your behalf.
