We know that the loss of your loved one has caused horrible pain for you and your family. We also understand that getting a financial settlement does not in any way bring back your loved one. However, taking legal action against the wrongdoer may help with the financial burden that comes with the death of a loved one. Litigation will also hold the negligent party responsible for the wrongful death of your loved one.

Who can bring a wrongful death lawsuit?
In New Mexico, a personal representative must bring a wrongful death lawsuit. A personal representative (PR) is a person appointed by the court to represent a deceased party. The PR can be a family member of the deceased, or it can be a person who, before being assigned PR, has no interest in the litigation, such as another attorney. It is important to discuss with your attorney who would be the appropriate PR for your loved one’s case as facts and circumstances differ greatly in every case.
