Defining Wrongful Death 

Wrongful death is when someone dies as a result of negligent or wrongful acts of another party. Some examples of wrongful death include:

  • Negligence, like careless driving or medical malpractice
  • Death in the course of another crime
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Work accidents
  • Swimming pool drowning
  • Defective products
  • Aviation accidents

What Can a Lawyer Help Me Recover?

It’s not always common knowledge that you can file a lawsuit in the case of wrongful death, just like how you can for slip-and-fall accidents or vehicle collisions. If your loved one has experienced wrongful death, you can file on their behalf. A wrongful death claim may help you receive financial compensation for related damages.

Here’s why Farmington residents choose Shapiro Law Team for wrongful death cases:

What Are the Leading Causes of Wrongful Death?

There are varying causes of wrongful death in Farmington, New Mexico. Shapiro Law Team is well versed in aiding clients who have lost a loved one or family member due to the following wrongful death causes:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Bicycle or pedestrian accidents
  • Defective products
  • Work-related accidents

  • Medical malpractice

What Forms of Compensation Can be Recovered in a New Mexico Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In wrongful death lawsuits, there are two types of compensation: economic and non-economic damages. 

Economic Damages

These types of damages refer to any financial losses that the family of the victim of wrongful death will incur after said death. Economic damages include:

  • Cost of medical treatments a person incurred before death
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of wages, resources, or income the deceased would have provided if they had lived

Calculating this is straightforward. Usually, a plaintiff and an attorney will add up all expenses involved in the wrongful death and calculate how much money the victim may have provided during their normal lifespan had they lived. 

Non-Economic Damages

Calculating non-economic damages can be tricky because they refer to intangible losses, such as the following:

  • Love 
  • Affection
  • Nurturing
  • Consortium
  • Companionship

Trying to find a monetary amount from the above is challenging and not something a plaintiff can usually do on their own. Shapiro Law Team is highly skilled in calculating both economic and non-economic damages to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
