About Wrongful Death Suits

In New Mexico, as in other states, a wrongful death suit is a type of civil lawsuit that falls under the umbrella of personal injury law. If a person's death is caused by the careless or reckless actions of another, the family of the deceased has the legal right to seek damages. Some examples of wrongful death lawsuits include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to perform safety checks on a commercial vehicle
  • Failing to fix fencing around a pool
  • Failing to secure aggressive dogs
  • Failing to repair broken locks on a commercial property

These are just a few of the types of incidents that have involved wrongful death claims. Attorney Romero has years of experience fighting for families whose loved one has been lost because of someone's else's negligence or recklessness.
