One dead, another seriously injured in Santa Fe accident

Most may assume that in the event of a car accident in Roswell, the insurance providers of those involved will cover all of the expenses associated with the accident. That may be true in cases involving simple fender-benders, yet more severe accidents can yield extensive damage to vehicles and cause significant injuries. Such injuries might require people to take time off work in order to recover, or even result in death (which furthers the financial impact through funeral expenses and the potential loss of income). In such cases, whatever amount an insurance company might pay may come nowhere near what is needed to covering the total cost. 

Driverless car technology and consumer trust

Most people in New Mexico have no doubt heard reports about autonomous vehicles being tested and some even being involved in accidents, including a fatal accident that left a pedestrian in neighboring Arizona dead earlier this year. With so much media attention focused on this technology, it is important for consumers to better understand it so that they can make informed decisions about their views on the matter.

Authorities say weather could have contributed to Eldorado crash

When the sun is shining and the roads in Roswell are clear, everyone may a good driver. Yet introduce poor conditions into the equation, and suddenly things may get a little more dicey for those on the road. To some, the need to adjust one's driving patterns to account for changing road conditions might seem quite clear, yet it is not that way for others. They may trust enough in their driving skills that they believe whatever sort of obstacle the road or weather throws at them, they will be able to handle. Sadly, such drivers are often proven wrong. 

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.

Drunk driver rear ends, kills man

When anyone seeks a driver's license in New Mexico, they generally learn about some of the rules of the road in the state. These rules include those that govern drunk driving. It is illegal to drive a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content over 0.08 percent. In addition to the laws, many public awareness campaigns highlight the dangers of operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, there remain too many people who refuse to put safety first. As such, drunk drivers continue to cause accidents that both injure and even kill innocent people.

Additional car crash consequences

Often, when people envision the consequences of a car wreck, they picture the loss of innocent life or serious injuries that are incredibly painful. While these are certainly a part of many accidents, it is essential to remember that these wrecks can shatter lives in other ways also. For example, a motor vehicle accident victim may have their entire life thrown into chaos after a wreck, even after they have recovered from an injury they suffered in the crash.
