How damages are distributed in wrongful death cases

When a person is killed as a result of the negligent or wrongful actions of another person or entity in New Mexico, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed against the responsible party or parties. The lawsuit must be filed by the personal representative of the victim. If the lawsuit is successful, New Mexico outlines how the damages should be distributed to the decedent's family members.

Esurance studies prevalence of distracted driving

Drivers in New Mexico are probably aware that distracted driving is a common hazard on the road, and it may not be just from other drivers. A new study from Esurance, the insurance company, shows that distracted driving is more prevalent than some think. Even those who claimed that they rarely drove distracted were found in the study to engage in distracting behavior.

Small number of workers report workplace harassment

Sources indicate that only 10 percent of people who are victims of harassment in the workplace in New Mexico and the rest of the country will file an official complaint. Their reluctance to do so is linked to the belief that their concerns will not be taken seriously or that they will be retaliated against. According to a 2016 report issued by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, both concerns have grounds.

Making roads safer

When compared to other developed countries, the U.S. does not rank favorably with regard to road safety. In 2016, 37,461 people died in car accidents, an increase in the number of road-related deaths in the U.S. over the preceding year by 5.6 percent. This increase has been felt in 39 states across the United States, including New Mexico, a state that also has the nation's highest rate of pedestrian deaths.
