Wrongful Death

A wrongful death case involves a death caused by fault of another person. Although wrongful death cases can arise under numerous circumstances, they typically involve deaths caused by car or truck accidents; the manufacture of a defective or dangerous product; the construction of an unsound structure or building; or failing to properly diagnose or treat a serious medical condition.

Wrongful death lawsuits or claims are generally filed by family. In some instances, these claims are filed in order to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have earned during his or her lifetime.

Other damages that may be recovered include:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering before death
  • Loss of companionship, care or protection for a spouse or child
  • Expenses associated with the death, e.g., medical and funeral bills

Those who are entitled to money damages from such suits, depend upon an established New Mexico statutes relating to who are the proper beneficiaries.
