According to estimates by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), roughly 32,000 people are killed in fatal traffic collisions each year in the United States. Losing a loved one in a vehicle collision can be devastating, especially given the largely preventable nature of many types of car accidents. At Berenson & Associates, PC, our compassionate Albuquerque wrongful death attorney understands the considerable anguish your family must be experiencing and can provide the unshakable support you need to ensure your rights are protected during this emotional time.
Countless clients have trusted us with their most sensitive cases for the following reasons:
Fatal motor vehicle collisions are frequently the direct result of another party’s negligent acts behind the wheel, such as driving while intoxicated, driving while distracted, driving at unsafe speeds, or running through stop signs and red lights. As a certified auto accident reconstructionist, our founding attorney, Rachel Berenson, can examine the circumstances surrounding your loved one’s collision and discover who is to blame. If it can be proven that your loved one’s death was indeed caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover a wide range of damages by filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible driver.
Eligible damages may include:
While no amount of money could ever replace your loved one, a wrongful death settlement can help your family cope with the associated financial burden and ensure that you will not struggle to cover your necessary expenses. Furthermore, pursuing legal action can be seen as a way of honoring your loved one by ensuring that nobody else should have to suffer the same fate at the hands of those responsible.
At Berenson & Associates, our Albuquerque car accident lawyer believes that no family should have to suffer the consequences of another driver’s reckless actions on their own. With unshakable support and constant involvement throughout all stages of your case, we can help you and your family overcome this loss and assert your rights in a court of law. We will never treat you like a number, and we will never push a “cookie cutter” strategy on you to secure the quickest resolution possible. Protecting your wellbeing is our top priority, and we are committed to treating your case with the utmost respect and professionalism that it deserves.
