Heat-related fatigue and pedestrian accidents

Pedestrian accidents can happen at any time of year, but there are certain times when an accident may be even more probable. For example, many pedestrians take to the road during the summer months for various reasons, from children who have free time due to school being out to people who walk around more often because of the warmer evenings. However, increased pedestrian traffic can also increase the likelihood of an accident occurring and there are certain seasonal factors, such as extreme heat, which can make things worse.

Most New Mexico shoppers do not think twice when entering a grocery store or shopping mall, but some facilities fail to present proper warnings for wet floors and other hazards. When this is the case, an injured consumer may decide to take legal action.

Explaining divorce to younger ears

Going through a divorce can affect different family members in equally different ways. Many New Mexico parents who are jumping over the hurdles of the divorce process understand this sentiment all too well. For those with young children, the step of informing them of the divorce can seem an entirely separate challenge. Below are some strategies to keep in mind when explaining divorce to younger family members.

What To Do if your Workers' Compensation Benefits are Denied

You have worked at your job for years- given it your blood, sweat and tears. Until one day, while doing the thing you love, you are injured. Now, the job that you have loved and sacrificed for, you can no longer do. And it is breaking your heart, each day you have to sit on the sidelines. You can also no longer provide for your family.
