Medical debt a major factor in bankruptcy

Many people in New Mexico and across the country struggle with difficulties making ends meet. Despite reports about the improving economy, people suffer with hefty credit card bills, car loans and other types of debt that they are unable to pay off. Medical bills rank especially high for many people suffering with insurmountable debt and are often the largest single reason why people decide to file for bankruptcy. The problem is so significant that medical bills and the health care system have become a major topic for debate in the upcoming presidential elections. According to one study in 2019, 65.5% of people who file for bankruptcy do so largely due to medical bills.

Victims may not remember a head injury after a car accident

Car accidents can cause many different injuries, including some that are not easy to identify. While most serious injuries cause pain or display visible signs of harm, delayed pain injuries do not. In many cases, car accident victims avoid seeing a doctor because they don't feel any pain or see signs of an injury, which can lead to significant complications.

Dealing with blended families when creating a will

When a person dies in New Mexico, if that person is part of a blended family in which there are children from a previous relationship, there could be conflict. This was the situation for one woman whose stepmother did not file her father's will in probate court.

Distracted driving may increase when hands are free

Statistics show that an average of nine people die every day in the U.S. because of distracted driving practices. To help provide safe driving solutions for commercial truck fleets in New Mexico and across America, Lytx has studied risky driving behaviors among big rig operators. While the video telematics and analytics company reports an upward trend of truck drivers now using hands-free devices, this also seems to leave drivers open to other distractions such as eating or smoking behind the wheel.
