A dump truck incident that some are calling a “freak accident” killed a teen from Mora, NM. Family members are desperate for answers as to how much an accident could happen, reports KRQE News. The teen, Nazareth Lara, who was known around his neighborhood as “Nazzy”, was working a summer job at Olivas Trucking at the time of the accident.  During the workday, a 13 ton dump truck rolled over and crushed him. He was 15 at the time of his death. “He was such a compassionate and loving person,” said his cousin, Henrietta. “His day at work should never have ended like this.”
New Mexico State Police are investigating, but there were few details at the time of the report. What is known is that Lara was working with a crew at a residence on State Road 815. At some point, the truck rolled backwards onto his chest. He died at the scene.
He was known to be very involved with the community, and loved nature. He spent a lot of time outdoors with his friends and family. “If he was outdoors, he loved it. That was his place….that is where he really wanted to be,” said Henrietta. His final resting place is signified with a cross made from antlers.
It’s not known what the next steps the Lara family will take with regards to getting compensation for Nazzy. No matter what they do, their first step should be to contact a skilled attorney to guide them through the process.
They should be filing for compensation with Nazzy’s insurance company. Should the insurance company deny a payout for any reason, an attorney can help them fight back and work to get what they deserve. Insurance plans and the laws that regulate the industry can be difficult to navigate, but a lawyer will know them through and through.
An attorney can also help investigate the circumstances of the case, and help determine what caused the accident. If someone is at fault, then Lara’s family may be entitled to compensation. Their team will check for every factor, such as an equipment malfunction, operator error or negligence, or even if the people on the site were properly trained. They will also interview any witnesses or involved persons. They will leave no stone unturned to uncover the truth behind the incident. If you plan on fighting the insurance company, or filing a suit against someone you deem responsible, then you have to have all of the information available to create a sound strategy.
Between insurance claims, investigating, and potentially filing suit, there is a lot more than just grief that results from the injury or death of a loved one.
