New Mexico Wrongful Death and Fatal Car Accidents

When the negligent, careless or reckless conduct of another person causes the death of a loved one, the consequences are devastating for the family and friends who are left to carry on. The estate and heirs may have claims that they can make against the person who is responsible for the death of their loved one. In some circumstances, there may be hidden claims against individuals or entities who contributed to the wrongful death of the individual. These can range from negligent entrustment claims to dram shop actions against individuals or liquor establishments who over served alcohol or provided alcohol to minors.
