Fatal Truck Accidents

Albuquerque Wrongful Death Lawyer

Due to the sheer size and weight of a commercial truck, many trucking accidents cause widespread devastation and a fatality among the people in the smaller vehicle. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or recklessness of a truck driver, filing a wrongful death claim may be able to help you find some peace of mind through financial stability. Berenson & Associates, P.C. is known throughout New Mexico for providing compassionate and knowledgeable legal and moral support for our clients.

Compensation You May Be Able to Seek

In a truck accident claim of any sort, it can be expected that the truck driver will be backed by their company and a team of legal experts. We hope to empower your claim and keep the case in your favor by using Attorney Berenson’s unique accident reconstructionist skills to pinpoint liability. If it can be determined that your loved one passed away due to the truck driver or another related party, compensation may become available that help you get through such a difficult time.

Damages we would want to consider for your trucking accident wrongful death case:

  • Wages the decedent should have earned in their lifetime
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of consortium and companionship
  • Final medical and hospitalization bills
  • Punitive damages if illegal actions caused the accident
  • Repair or replacement costs to vehicle

It is clear that no settlement or verdict will be able to replace a person you lost in a trucking accident, but the truth is that compensation can provide a solid financial future that helps take your mind off bills. In this way, a wrongful death claim may prove to be crucial for your own recuperation. Holding a negligent trucker or trucking company accountable also penalizes and discourages them from acting so recklessly in the future, essentially protecting everyone else on the road.
