Helping you initiate a legal action following a birth injury

When a woman is expecting to bring new life into the world, she is not expecting any harm to be caused to her or her newborn. Unfortunately, there are risks associated with childbirth, but for the most part, unpreventable injuries and harms are not the ones one should be the most concerned with. Medical errors and mistakes could result in harm caused to the mother and baby, and these birth injuries could impact one or both of them temporarily or even for the rest of their life.

Rate of pedestrian deaths in New Mexico

In New Mexico and elsewhere, getting around by foot is not uncommon. Residents will walk in the cities, on sidewalks, in residential areas and other areas throughout the state. While this is a great form of exercise, it is also an activity that poses many risks. Pedestrians are likely to share the road with motorists, and if a driver is not attentive or cautious, this could result in a pedestrian accident.

A bicycle accident requires legal assistance for compensation

There is a seemingly endless array of reasons bicycling is a positive activity in New Mexico. Not only will a frequent bicyclist stay in shape, but it is also good for the environment and helps people save money. That aside, there are inherent risks with riding bicycles. A crash between a motor vehicle and a bicycle can cause serious injuries and death to a rider. This is true even if the rider is taking all the necessary precautions and is wearing safety equipment. With the litany of problems that arise after a bicycle crash, having legal advice is imperative to take the necessary steps to file a lawsuit.

New Mexico teens in top 10 for auto accident risk

In New Mexico and across the nation, it is a natural concern that teen drivers will put other drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians at risk. This is understandable. Simply being new will cause potential hazards. When adding risky behaviors into the mix, the danger is made exponentially worse. Studies are frequently conducted to assess why teens might cause an auto accident. A recent research project from WalletHub listed the best and worst states for teen drivers and New Mexico came in among the 10 worst. After a crash, this can be a key factor when seeking compensation.
