We regularly represent clients who have suffered trauma, including head trauma in motor vehicle crashes. We are committed to the client’s comprehensive medical care now and in the future. We fight for money damages in personal injury lawsuits against parties who drive negligently, recklessly, aggressively, illegally, or while drunk or high.
In addition to seeking recovery for medical bills, we fight for damages for other needs and losses from brain injuries caused by car accidents, including lost wages, long-term care, rehabilitation, home and car modifications, pain and suffering, therapies, and others.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides comprehensive information about brain injuries, from concussions to traumatic brain injuries, called TBIs. The CDC reports:
· Symptoms from brain injury vary and can include loss of consciousness, confusion, nausea, memory loss, impaired thinking, depression, personality change, emotional upset or irritability, vision and hearing impairment, headache, sleep problems, balance issues, fatigue, anxiety, seizures and more, including permanent disability and even death.
· TBI increases the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
· Motor vehicle accidents cause about 15 percent of TBIs and 25 percent of TBI-related death.
· Motor vehicle accidents are the most frequent reason for death from brain injury for young people aged 5 through 24, and for TBI-related hospitalization for those aged 15 through 44.
It is important for any New Mexican who suffers from a head injury in a car crash to seek legal advice immediately. Even when head trauma seems minor at first, more serious symptoms can develop later. An experienced attorney will seek input from medical experts to understand the kinds of short and long-term damages the individual should seek in each case. In addition, a skilled lawyer will communicate with insurance companies and law enforcement on behalf of the client and immediately launch an investigation on the client’s behalf into the accident.
