When a traumatic incident like a car accident happens to yourself or a loved one, there can be a variety of questions that need answering. Of the most pressing of these questions is surrounding the health and well-being of the injured. Medical treatment and their resounding expenses and access to top-quality medical care is always high on the list for those who have suffered car accident injury. If you are wondering if your car accident injury is atypical, read on.
It can happen in the blink of an eye. One minute, people are driving along the interstate and the next, they or a loved one can be involved in a catastrophic crash. Some crashes are so devastating that they claim the lives of their passengers. Sadly, this was the case on a New Mexico interstate when a vehicle crossed over into oncoming traffic causing the deaths of the driver in the passenger in the oncoming vehicle.
Many think that a car accident could never actually happen to them. But the truth is that Bernalillo residents are involved in car accidents on a daily basis. Some car accidents are very serious and have long-lasting resounding impacts -- whether health-wise, or financially, the accident can be devastating.
While most of us would never consider getting behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated, some have and will continue to do so. Whatever their reasoning behind this decision, it is against the law to drive with a blood alcohol content over the New Mexico legal limit. Avoiding these intoxicated drivers is tough to do since it can be difficult to tell who is and who is not driving intoxicated. Some Albuquerque residents aren't so lucky and suffer a car accident with a drunk driver.
Top notch medical care is an important component in the healing process, and this is especially true when a person has been injured in a serious car accident. Injuries sustained in a car accident can range from whiplash to head injuries to even spinal cord injuries, all of which can be very serious. Prompt medical care and a rehabilitation program are essential for the injured person to regain their health. However, this medical care does not come cheap.
It is hard for most New Mexico drivers to fathom making a choice that could put themselves or other drivers on the road in danger. However, this is the choice that hundreds of Americans make everyday when they choose to get behind the wheel intoxicated. A recent Albuquerque car crash brought this very scary scenario to life when a multi-car accident caused serious injuries and a fatality. The driver who caused the crash is also accused of impaired driving, among other charges.
While most drivers get behind the wheel with the best intentions, sometimes something can go wrong that causes a car crash. A recent crash in Albuquerque does not fit that description because one of the drivers is under suspicion of DUI after his involvement in the fatal car crash. Accidents caused by, or related to, drunk driving or intoxicated driving are often entirely preventable.
Sometimes, there are no words after a catastrophic auto accident leaves one seriously injured. The fact that this could even happen is often mind-boggling. When life gets turned on its head, there is only one thing to do: seek justice. Through a lawsuit, accident victims may seek justice against any person or third party that contributed to an accident that caused serious injury and the compounding issues that follow.
Sad news broke shortly before the holiday weekend when it was reported that a pedestrian was killed after a car accident with a dark-colored SUV. Even worse, the driver suspected of striking the man fled the scene of the accident.
There are few events that can surprise and shock a person as much as a car accident. One moment, one is driving along, and the next they come into contact with another vehicle. Depending on their injuries, those involved in the accident may be no condition to deal with the logistics of the accident. As such, this post focuses on ways Bernalillo residents can ensure a favorable situation, post-accident.
