Unfortunately, accidents happen. Sometimes, the circumstances surrounding accidents are so severe that it results in the untimely, unexpected death of a person, which is also known as wrongful death.

Oftentimes, wrongful death cases are caused by negligent or irresponsible behavior, but there are cases where it may be premeditated. Some common cases involving wrongful death include:

  • A fatality resulting from an automobile, truck or motorcycle collision
  • A patient dying due to a botched operation or medical malpractice
  • Fatalities caused by errors in prescription doses or during the course of medicinal treatment
  • Being killed due to a defective product

In situations involving wrongful death, it is possible for victims’ families to file a wrongful death claim, which can provide assistance in a number of ways. Typically, these claims are reserved for immediate family of the victim – children, spouses, etc. – but some states do have legal provisions that extend to the deceased’s parents or other next of kin.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can ensure that:

  • The victim’s family receives the assistance they need and are entitled to. Whether it’s children, a spouse or even elderly parents, victims often leave behind other financial dependents
  • Others are deterred from being dangerously negligent or irresponsible. Unfortunately, tragic situations also tend to serve as a warning to the community, often encouraging others to think twice about acting in the same manner

It’s important to note that laws regarding wrongful death may differ slightly on a state-by-state basis. Statutes here in New Mexico may be different than those in surrounding states, like California, Nevada and Texas.
