Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?

After a loved one’s death, a select group of people can file a wrongful death claim. They include:

  • A representative of the estate on behalf of the survivors
  • A spouse
  • Parents of minors
  • Minors who lost their parents

Typically, the more distant the relationship, the more difficult it is to file a claim. Regardless of your relationship, we will work together to build the strongest possible case.

Why Should You File A Claim?

There are many reasons why you may decide to file a wrongful death claim. If a doctor has failed to diagnose a condition, misdiagnoses a condition or was careless during treatment, you might have a case. Together, we will thoroughly work through all of the facts.

You may be entitled to compensation, including funeral costs, medical costs, loss of inheritance, loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and loss of the deceased person’s income. Let us help you find some comfort in securing justice after your loss and ensuring financial protection.

If you are suffering after the loss of a loved one, let us help. We are here to answer any questions you have from beginning to end. New Mexico has a three-year statute of limitations to file a claim, but we recommend contacting our office as soon as possible for the best chances of success.
