If you look at the statistics from the past few years, you will find that deadly car accidents have been on the decline. The United States still sees more than 35,000 deaths every year from car accidents, a staggering number, but it has dropped slightly.
When New Mexico residents suffer a serious injury in a catastrophic accident, there are many people who are affected by the event. The injured victim may have been a key income earner for the family, or perhaps was the main caregiver for children or an elderly relative. If the victim has suffered a traumatic brain injury, a spine injury or even several broken bones, the long road to recovery can seem daunting to everyone involved.
No one plans on getting injured, although most people have health insurance to help pay for the expenses associated with such an event. When New Mexico residents are injured by a dangerous condition on another person's property, they may be able to pursue a lawsuit to help them recover financial compensation to cover expenses associated with the injuries.
When our readers in New Mexico think of the typical slip-and-fall case, they probably envision a scenario at a grocery store where a slippery floor was not properly cleaned, leading to someone falling and becoming injured. And, while it may seem fairly straightforward to determine who is at fault in these types of situations, a personal injury lawsuit based on such a scenario might actually be more complicated than one may think.
By now, many of our readers in New Mexico are well aware of the danger of distracted driving.

Just how deadly is the impact of distracted driving in America?
