Unfortunately, it is all too common for a big rig crash to result in the wrongful death of an innocent victim. Fatal 18 wheeler wrecks are common because of the large size and heavy weight of these box trucks. This is particularly true on fast moving roads such as I-40, I-25, and I-10. When a victim is wrongfully killed in a trucking crash, his or her family will be faced with medical bills, funeral expenses, and other costs while also receiving less financial, emotional, and handy services from a loved one.
This is why New Mexico law recognizes the right of a family to commence a wrongful death action to recover these expenses. The goal is both to compensate the family and the victim for his or her loss, but also to impose deterrent and sometimes punitive damages on the negligent party.
