NM woman charged with vehicular homicide in motorcyclist's death

A motorcyclist's fatality earlier this year has been the center of a police investigation by New Mexican authorities. The largest power outage in New Mexico's history occurred the night of the fatal accident, and although leaving low light conditions on New Mexico's roads, this is no excuse for distracted driving behaviors. The woman facing charges in the motorcyclist's death told authorities she was texting and driving at the time of the accident, which has prompted an investigation into her phone records. Although the woman was a distracted driver at the time of the collision, it was proven she wasn't texting and driving at the moment of impact.

Motorcyclist unjustly injured by distracted driver can recover

Motorcyclists can get a bad reputation. Some people wrongly believe that New Mexico motorcyclists are reckless and unsafe, due to the unfair stigma surrounding motorcyclists and motorcycle accidents. The reality is that most motorcyclists operate their bike in a safe and responsible manner and drive with every caution and courtesy available to them. Motorcyclists are often involved in accidents with motor-vehicles due to motor-vehicle driver error.

What legal rights are afforded to NM nursing home residents?

When it comes to our loved ones, there isn't anything that we wouldn't do for them. Typically, the decision to move a loved one into a nursing home or an assisting living facility is a tough one to make. Usually a loved one's health has deteriorated or perhaps there was a big event that does not allow them to continue living their life the way they used to. Whatever the reasoning behind the decision, those that live in nursing homes may give up some of their independence, but they do not relinquish their legal rights.
