Steer clear of possible drunk drivers

Driving in New Mexico nowadays is obviously quite different from how it was several decades ago. When you're behind the wheel, you face many increased risks that drivers long ago rarely experienced. Reasons for this vary, including higher posted speed limits, far more traffic, the almost continual presence of tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles on the road, and last but not least: more drunk drivers.

How fast can you get workers' compensation?

Workers' compensation is supposed to help injured employees fill in the financial gaps while they can't work. This can include helping to pay medical bills and cover the impact of lost wages. The system isn't perfect, though, and one issue some people run into is dealing with the time it can take to receive workers' compensation payments.

How to Obtain Compensation from a Premises Liability Case

When you think of premises liability, it's probably the one thing that every property owner must uphold whenever guests visit their premises. Whether it's a grocery store or office building, each property owner is obligated by law to protect visitors and employees from various forms of hazards that can lead to slip-and-fall accidents. When you walk into a retail store, it's a general opinion that every precaution has been taken to protect you from danger. This translates that such proprietors have gone above and beyond to warn guests of potential hazards, or better yet provide them with protective equipment.

Fiery crash kills 1, injures 4, driver facing charges

What kinds of injuries are covered under workers' compensation?

Workers' compensation coverage provides a very valuable protection for workers. It gives them somewhere to run for benefits if they are hurt at work and need medical care. Protections are also available for them if they can't work. It is important for anyone who thinks they might have a claim under workers' compensation to understand exactly what a compensable injury is so that they have a good idea of what they need to do.

Protecting a loved one from elder abuse and neglect

When New Mexico families make the decision to place their loved one in a nursing home or other type of residential health care facility, it is with the expectation that the individual will receive adequate care and attention. Sadly, that is not always the case, and loved ones may suffer various types of abuse or neglect.
