Wrongful Death Lawyer in Albuquerque NM

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?

New Mexico law defines wrongful death as a death arising from "the wrongful act, neglect or default of another." This is a broad characterization, but a useful one — if an individual dies as a result of someone else's carelessness or maliciousness, that individual's family deserves restitution. No amount of money can replace a loved one, but at the very least, funeral costs, medical bills and considerations of lost income should be restored to the victim's family.

The Law Offices of Edward Chavez, Jr., has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of clients in wrongful death matters. Our principal attorney, Ed Chavez, has successfully pursued these claims in Albuquerque and the surrounding region for more than 30 years.

Following Wrongful Death, Families Deserve Compensation

Whether an individual was killed in a car accident or murdered intentionally, survivors ought to receive damages. Ed will work hard to make sure families acquire what they are owed. He will fight to recover compensation for all manner of expenses, including:

  • Funeral and burial fees
  • Medical bills related to the deceased individual's death
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering suffered by the deceased

Most wrongful death claims settle, and Ed will negotiate aggressively with insurance companies and opposing counsel to obtain a favorable arrangement. When resolution cannot be achieved, he will fight for his clients in court.

Ed knows the law. He knows the local jurisdiction. And he is committed to protecting his clients and their futures.
