The unexpected loss of a family member is even more tragic when their death is caused by someone else’s reckless or deliberately malicious behavior. At Law Office of Charles W. Bennett, I work to help survivors in New Mexico cope with their new circumstances. In settlement negotiations and at trial, I advocate for my clients to receive compensation that allows them to settle their loved one’s affairs and find a measure of justice for their wrongful death.

I employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure that your case is as strong as possible. I may also collect and preserve evidence from the accident scene and obtain testimony from people with first-person knowledge of your loved one’s passing. I will explore all options before focusing in on a tailored legal strategy to help you receive the maximum compensation possible.
