Preventing slip and fall accidents near swimming pools

Summer has finally arrived in New Mexico. This often means sunbathing, trips to the community pool and backyard pool parties. If an afternoon of fun comes to an abrupt halt because you sustain a slip and fall injury, there may be grounds for a claim. At Sanders Law Firm, our experienced attorneys often assist clients with personal injury cases.

Should stepparents have boundaries?

Co-parenting is tricky enough on its own, but when stepparents are involved it can be a minefield to navigate. While stepparents can make meaningful contributions to a family, there are certain boundaries that must be respected at all times. Parents Magazine explains some of these boundaries and why they're so important. 

The effect of divorce on estate planning

Few in Roswell may initially realize how fluid a process estate planning actually is. The common school of thought is that one creates their will and that is the end of it. Yet many things may change after one initially writes a will, some of which may influence their succession plains. One of these is divorce. Information shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that as recently as 2017, over 787,000 couples divorced in the U.S. (the actual number may indeed be higher, as five states did not furnish data for the study). As one would likely list their spouse as a beneficiary in their will, a divorce should certainly prompt them to revisit such a stipulation. 

What type of benefits are paid by workers' compensation?

If you work in New Mexico, you should make it a priority to learn about your rights as an employee. There are many laws and programs in place designed to ensure that you are treated fairly while at work. In addition, there are programs available to help you should you ever get hurt on the job or develop a work-related illness. For these situations, the workers' compensation program offers a range of benefits.
