Wrongful Death Attorney Representing Families in Roswell, Carlsbad, Artesia, Hobbs, Alamogordo, and throughout Southeastern New Mexico
The Help You Need After Losing A Loved One
There is perhaps nothing more difficult in life than losing a family member or other loved one; especially when that person’s death was premature. When you lose a spouse, a child or a parent because of someone else’s negligence, the grief and other hardships associated with that loss can last a lifetime.
In New Mexico, a wrongful death lawsuit is often the best way to pursue compensation after a fatal accident. Wrongful death lawsuits are similar in concept to personal injury claims; the most notable difference being that the suit is filed by representatives for the victim because the victim is unable to do so.
During this difficult time, you need the help of a caring and skilled attorney. You need a strong legal advocate who understands what your family is going through and who knows how to take care of the countless details that can accompany a wrongful death claim. When you work with the Grandjean Law Firm, that is exactly what you will get.
What’s at Stake In A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
After a fatal motor vehicle accident, the process for seeking compensation can be overwhelming and exhausting. Out-of-pocket costs accumulate almost immediately, but the parties responsible for paying these costs may try to delay payment or avoid liability altogether. Any civil lawsuits could also be delayed and complicated by a separate criminal investigation, as is often the case with drunk driving accidents.
Attorney Jeff Grandjean is prepared to fight for your family, both in and out of the courtroom. If negotiation with insurers, commercial trucking companies, and other entities proves unsuccessful, Mr. Grandjean will not hesitate to take your case to court.
Wrongful death litigation is often necessary because of the substantial costs associated with a loved one’s death. The Grandjean Law Firm helps families seeking damages for:
- Medical bills and related costs
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost wages and decreased financial contributions to household income
- Loss of companionship
- Mental anguish
- Compensation for the victim’s pain and suffering
- Punitive damages (in limited cases)
The Grandjean Law Firm takes all personal injury and wrongful death cases on contingency. You will not pay any money up front, and your attorney only gets paid if you receive compensation.
