Drunk driving causes serious accident outside Ranchos de Taos

Roswell residents are strongly encouraged to practice defensive driving in order to avoid accidents. While such advice may certainly be sound, one cannot completely negate the potential of being involved in a collision due to the fact that they cannot control the actions of others. Indeed, it is when those actions are negligent that people are placed in the position of needing to seek compensation following a car accident. Such a decision typically does not arise from any sense of bitterness, but rather the need for assistance in dealing with the expenses associated with an accident. 

Planning to avoid estate taxes

Some in Roswell might worry that after having expended a great deal of effort and attention into preparing their estates to be dispersed to their beneficiaries, much of the assets they have to leave will be eaten up by taxes. These fears may be unwarranted, as a great of misinformation exists about estate taxes. First and foremost is the fact that not many estate will actually owe taxes. Per The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, New Mexico does not have an estate tax. That leaves one only having to worry about the federal estate tax, and even that is one that can be planned for. 

Can vertigo cause a car accident?

People who struggle with vertigo may be negatively impacted by this condition in all sorts of ways. For example, their performance in the workplace may be adversely affected by vertigo, and they may not be able to participate in certain sports and activities that they used to enjoy. To make things worse, some may not be able to drive any longer. Unfortunately, there are many drivers who disregard the safety of themselves and others by driving with debilitating vertigo.

DUI dangers during the holidays

People in New Mexico should know by now that drinking after consuming alcohol is dangerous. On top of that, drinking and driving can put a person at risk for criminal charges and a series of unpleasant criminal penalties, including a lifelong criminal record. Unfortunately, these realities seem to be unable to stop some drivers from making what is a well-known risky and negligent choice. 

Examining no contest clause enforcement

Among the many points to contemplate after a loved one passes away in Roswell is how their estate will be dispersed. The relationship that you shared with the decedent might offer indications on how they structured your estate, so if what is actually stipulated in their will varies greatly from those expectations, you may be justified in having questions. Yet what if the will contains a no contest clause? Several clients have come to us there at the Sanders Law Firm concerned about the validity of their loved ones' wills, yet equally worried that any challenges they bring will cause them to be disinherited. If you share the same concerns, what you really need to know is how far will the court go in enforcing a no contest clause.
