Suing multiple defendants for wrongful death

Losing a loved one is always tragic, most of all due to the negligence or another. In New Mexico, the law offers options for wrongful death suits in the event the death could have been prevented had appropriate actions taken place. While compensation cannot return a loved one to life, awards in a wrongful death claim may defray any costs from funeral arrangements, damages to property or lost family income. At Almanzar & Youngers, P.A., we are deeply sympathetic to the pain of your loss, and understand that making choices in a wrongful death suit can be extremely stressful and difficult.

Factors involved in fatal traffic accidents in New Mexico

Driving takes a lot of concentration. Drivers in New Mexico should be aware of the most common factors that are involved in fatal accidents in the state. Knowing this data can help drivers take preventative action to keep themselves, other drivers and pedestrians safe on the road.

Know your rights when it comes to on-premises security

Whether browsing the mall, entering an empty parking garage at night or visiting a bar or nightclub, or on other premises open to the public, you have a reasonable expectation of safety. In an ideal situation, the owner of a business or premises open to the public in New Mexico is responsible for maintaining the safety and security of persons on their property. But what happens when that responsibility falls short? At the law firm of Almanzar & Youngers, P.A., we understand the losses inherent when a dangerous or violent crime occurs due to inadequate on-site security. We have handled wrongful death and sexual assault (rape) cases that arose out of inadequate security. 

Understanding charges of elder abuse

Elder abuse charges can be levied against individuals or corporations, and FindLaw notes that this could involve charges of behavior that negatively impacts the health and well-being of senior citizens. This type of abuse takes many forms, including general or widespread neglect and abandonment.
