The loss of a family member or loved one is a tragedy that can cause tremendous emotional pain and financial hardship. Many families lose a wage earner and are forced into poverty or bankruptcy. Our legal system allows money damages for such a loss. There is no other way to punish the negligent party or to try to ensure they correct the damages that caused the death
of a loved one. Contact us as soon as possible as there are time limitations for protecting your legal rights.
After the loss of a loved one, the last thing the family wants to think about is taking legal action. But in many cases, prompt action is required to investigate the circumstances and to preserve evidence. Waiting to retain legal counsel can be damaging to any future claims. For help, contact The Law Firm of Alexander D. Crecca, PC as soon as possible.
Money damages can be paid for such items as loss of earnings, support, love and affection, medical expenses, and pain and suffering prior to the time of death among others.
A death caused by a negligent, careless, intentional or reckless act of another person or corporation is considered a wrongful death. In New Mexico and most states, if the death of a relative or spouse was caused by the wrongful act of another, surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party or parties. The laws regarding wrongful death cases are complex.
It is vital to surviving family members to seek the advice of an experienced wrongful death lawyer to protect their rights and those of their loved ones. Time is of the essence – protect your rights.

Have You Lost a Loved One
Did someone else’s act of negligence cause the wrongful death of someone you care about?
At The Crecca Law Firm, your top Albuquerque Personal Injury Attorneys, we help families who have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one. We pursue fair compensation for victims and work to ensure that those who cause these types of accidents are held accountable for what they have done.
Over the course of more than 11 years, we have helped many families with the only recourse that the law allows in wrongful death cases: financial compensation.
Compensation Is Not Enough
Our lawyers understand that there is no amount of compensation that can come even close to being an adequate outcome for a family that has lost a loved one.
Still, this is the recourse that the law allows. It helps families to cover funeral expenses and any medical bills that may have accumulated prior to the person’s death. It helps families to cover the loss of income that the person would have brought in, had his or her life not been taken away.
The law also allows compensation for the loss of companionship due to wrongful death. Our attorneys are dedicated to recovering the full compensation allowed by the law.
Causes of Wrongful Death
Medical malpractice is a frequent cause of wrongful death. One act of negligence on the part of the doctor can mean the difference between healing and hurting. Misdiagnosis, surgical errors and other forms of malpractice can lead to loss of life.
