Financial Recovery For Your Family After The Death Of A Loved One
New Mexico’s Wrongful Death Act Statute defines the law in New Mexico and identifies the family members and what percentage each family member receives when the case is settled or a judgment is reached at trial in all wrongful death cases. If your family brings a claim under the Wrongful Death Act, any recovery you receive cannot be taken by creditors of the deceased to pay for outstanding debts. Only family members will receive the money paid because of the wrongful death.
Claims can also be made for the loss of companionship to the spouse and other family members such as children and parents. Victim’s losses include payment for your loved one’s initial injury, medical bills, and any conscious pain and suffering. Survivor’s losses include payment for issues that affect your family such as funeral expenses, loss of support and loss of companionship.
