New Mexico Wrongful Death cases often arise from car, truck, or motorcycle accidents, drunk driving accidents, medical malpractice, or product liability cases. The New Mexico Wrongful Death Statute provides a basis for bringing such cases. One of the most difficult aspects of a New Mexico Wrongful Death case is determining how much compensation is appropriate. To assist with this process, New Mexico has implemented Uniform Jury Instructions which among other things address:

  • The value of lost earnings
  • The value of pain and suffering
  • The value of wrongful death damages, and
  • Mortality tables.

These Jury Instructions help New Mexico juries in their always difficult role of trying to answer how much to award in a wrongful death case.
