Next time you look over at a stoplight and see someone sitting on their phone, take a moment to think about just how distracted that driver is. Keep your distance. Distracted driving causes a lot of injuries and fatalities in accidents every year.
The decision to put a loved one in a nursing home is not easy, but it is sometimes necessary to provide them with the care they need. Unfortunately, some facilities in New Mexico fail to adhere to a reasonable standard of care and residents are injured, become ill or lose their lives. In some instances, there is outright abuse. People who suspect that a loved one was mistreated at a nursing home should consider filing a personal injury lawsuit.
During the holiday season, the celebrations can be marred by people choosing to get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol. Auto accidents are often caused by a drunk driver and can lead to injuries and fatalities. This is true in New Mexico and across the United States. Law enforcement encourages people to designate a driver, to take a cab or use a ride sharing app to keep them from heading out on the road and running the risk of a drunk driving accident, especially after parties celebrating the new year. Still, people will choose to drink and drive. In New Mexico, this is a consistent problem not just on holidays, but throughout the year.
