The way we travel from Point A to Point B has changed dramatically over the last decade, thanks to services like Uber and Lyft. As rideshare services increase in popularity across the country, many people wonder who holds responsibility for accidents involving these ride service providers. The answer is not exactly clear cut, as liability often depends on what task the driver was performing.
A car accident can leave you with so much more than a bent fender or a bump on the head. Medical bills start to pile up, you miss time from work dealing with the insurance company – meanwhile your vehicle is still in the shop.
Multi-car crashes, often called “pileups,” often cause serious injuries. Pileups are among the most dangerous types of roadway accidents that occur in New Mexico. In fact, a New Mexico woman recently lost her life in a five-car pileup while trying to offer assistance to another driver.
When crossing a street, most people assume that drivers are paying attention. But that is not always the case.
You’re driving down I-10, heading home after a long day. Suddenly, you hear that familiar ping—your phone alerting you to a new text, email or other notification. Your hands are fixed on the wheel, but your brain begins to churn as you wonder what it could mean.
If you’re heading down the interstate at 60 miles per hour and crash, the results can be devastating—no matter what type of vehicle you’re driving. However, if you’re on a motorcycle without tons of protective metal surrounding you, the risk of suffering serious injuries is significantly higher.
You're driving down the street at a leisurely pace. As you approach the stop sign ahead of you, you begin to slow down. Unfortunately, the distracted driver behind you doesn't notice the stop sign--and rear-ends you.
On your way home from work, a truck side-swiped you. Your car is totaled, and now you're laid up in bed with a broken leg. You wonder to yourself whether it's worthwhile to contact an attorney about your case. What's the benefit?
You may have heard of the texting ban that New Mexico's legislature passed a few years ago in an attempt to curb distracted driving. However, the term "texting ban" is a bit misleading, as the law actually prohibits more than just texting.
You're driving home from work one Thursday afternoon. Suddenly, another car plows into you from the side--sending you spinning into oncoming traffic. Miraculously, you survive--but the damage to your car and your person is considerable.
