Wrongful Death Archives

How wrongful death claims work in New Mexico

When someone dies prematurely due to another person's deliberate actions or negligence, that death is said to be "wrongful." In some cases, criminal authorities may get involved -- but when the death was an accident, the victim's survivors usually have to seek a measure of justice in civil court.

Don't ignore your emotions after you lose a loved one

The sudden loss of a loved one is a tragic situation. When you are faced with this, there isn't any telling exactly how you will deal with it. You have to be sure that you are taking care of yourself because you might be shocked at the wide range of emotions you feel. You shouldn't ignore those feelings because doing so can consume you. Instead, it is best if you take the time to address them and try to cope with them, so you can move forward with life.

Address your emotions after your loved one's tragic death

The feeling of grief is one that is crushing after you lose a loved one in a tragic accident. One of the most important things that people might focus on after that loss is what happened to their loved one. For some, the reality is that the person died at the hands of the very people who were supposed to help them. This is the case when a patient dies due to medical malpractice.

Pulmonary embolisms can lead to sudden death

Surgery comes with many risks. One of these is a pulmonary embolism. Because this is a known risk, doctors and other medical professionals should be watchful for signs of this occurring. When they aren't monitoring appropriately, there is a chance that the condition can be fatal.

Wrongful death claims must meet certain requirements

People who don't receive adequate or appropriate medical care when they seek it out might end up suffering harm. When the person survives the harm, he or she might decide to seek out compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. If the person dies as a result of the improper medical care, a wrongful death lawsuit might be in order.

Wrongful death claims aren't just about money

A loved one's death is always hard to handle. When that death comes from issues with the medical care that your loved one received, the difficulty might be intensified. In these cases, you might opt to pursue a wrongful death claim in an effort to hold the person accountable for their actions. We can help you to explore this option and move forward with it.

Many civil cases are resolved through a settlement before trial

There are many different things that can come up in a wrongful death lawsuit. One of these is that it might be possible to resolve the case through a settlement that happens before the case goes to a civil jury trial. In these cases, you might be able to get the compensation that your loved one's death deserves without having as much of a delay or having to deal with the trial.

The loss of someone you love can devastate you for a long time

The death of a loved one isn't something that you can get over quickly. Instead, it will likely bring a lifetime of sadness. This sadness doesn't usually come all at once. You might find that it sort of hits you in waves. The first year, you might have a lot of grief waves as you go through the "firsts" without your family member. The following year, it might be a bit less intense, but the grief won't ever go away.

You have a lot to do after a loved one's death

The unexpected death of a loved one is the first event in a long line of things that you might not be prepared for. If the person who died is a loved one, you might be responsible for his or her final arrangements and other related matters. Here are a few things that you should consider if you've recently lost a loved one:

Let your fury fuel your wrongful death lawsuit

It is only natural to be sad when a loved one passes away. One thing that you have to realize is that you are likely going to go through several emotions. At one point, you might feel grief. That might turn to anger. If your loved one died as the result of a tragic accident caused by another person and that could have been prevented, you might feel furious. Handling this intense anger might be a challenge.
