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, guidance and support for spouses, significant others, in some circumstances and children.

Those that are entitled to money damages from such claims depend up on New Mexico wrongful death laws. To ask questions about your wrongful death claim and how you can receive help, call Sanchez & Piñon to discuss your questions, concerns and case with our attorneys directly.
