In May, two motorcyclists were killed in a terrible accident here in New Mexico. More recently, another terrible crash has brought the nation's attention once again to the dangers faced by motorcyclists.
While many New Mexico teens welcome the summer months as time to relax and take time off from studying, police officers consider this time important for another reason. The 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day are known as the 100 deadliest days for traffic crashes. This time is especially dangerous for teen drivers.
After a car accident takes place, victims often decide to hold the negligent driver who caused the car crash accountable for their behavior. One way they do this is by pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver. This can often result in an accident investigation and collection of evidence in the form of depositions and interrogatories.
Not every accident that happens is the fault of one driver. Often, a number of factors combine together to cause a crash and, at times, both drivers involved are responsible for causing the accident. The question then arises: what happens if the accident victim is also at fault?
