Workplace injuries and the most dangerous jobs

For most New Mexico employees, the end of a work day signals the time for much-needed personal care, errands and leisure. Not all workers, however, get to enjoy the satisfaction of this freedom, instead grappling with the many steps of a workplace injury. No matter what type of accident is at hand, a large majority of employers must follow state laws surrounding worker benefits and compensation. However, do the industries themselves open the door for safety hazards? 

The dos and don'ts of bankruptcy

Most New Mexico residents could agree that the term "bankruptcy" is a frightening one. However, there are many instances in which this option proves advantageous. For instance, if homeowners face disclosure, or college graduates discover that student loans took a cripping chunk out of financial stability, bankruptcy could come to the rescue. Below are a few pointers on bankruptcy, commentary on why it could be the ideal option and other details that could benefit consumers in times of need.

What, exactly, is a slip and fall?

Even though such incidents may not always be life-threatening, a slip and fall can become a serious setback that can affect an individual for an extensive period of time. And despite the familiarity of those yellow caution signs signaling a wet floor, some New Mexico residents do not receive a warning that conditions may be dangerous at all. Sometimes, customers who fall in stores cannot determine whether the store did, in fact, fail to maintain safety; yet there are some general facts to keep in mind in these potentially dangerous situations.

Turning over a new leaf after divorce

Divorce can open many doors that may have once been sealed, but first, ex-spouses must jump through the legal and financial hoops. It is natural for this complex process to involve equally complex feelings; after all, there are many phases to dealing with life after divorce. New Mexico residents going through this difficult time may have more questions than answers regarding new schedules, child custody arrangements and other aspects of daily life.

Do you need a new financial start?

More often than not, when many people hear the word “bankruptcy” their immediate association is a negative one. This happens in spite of the fact that most people have little understanding of what filing for bankruptcy actually entails or what it is meant to be for the people who need it. This negative misconception and general lack of understanding about bankruptcy has had the unfortunate side effect of stigmatizing a process that can actually be a positive turning point in the lives of people who take the time to learn more about it, recognize their own need for a new financial start and have the courage to make what can be a difficult decision in order to pave the way for a better future for themselves and often their families as well.
