Neck and Head Injury Lawyers and Attorneys in Albuquerque, New Mexico

According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2013, 2.5 million people visited the emergency room due to traumatic brain injuries. Another 282,000 people were hospitalized due to traumatic brain injury. Traumatic head injuries can affect almost every aspect of a person’s life. Individuals may have trouble with memory, cognition (thinking), sleeping, and experience changes in mood. The more severe injuries can result in problems speaking and moving. Even mild traumatic head injury can have an impact on a person’s ability to work, care for their loved ones, and enjoy life.

Head injuries are usually caused by a sudden jolt or blow to the head. According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury. Being struck or hit by an object was the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury, and car accidents were the third leading cause leading to hospitalizations and deaths. The great tragedy is that many of these accidents could have been easily prevented with proper precautions and care. For instance, nursing home falls can seriously affect elderly residents and lead to traumatic brain injury. Sports injuries or construction accident injuries can leave individuals disabled or requiring long-term care. When workplaces or sports organizations fail to provide individuals with proper safety gear or instruction, accidents can happen. Finally, car accidents are another source of preventable head injuries. Texting and driving, drunk driving, speeding, and breaking the rules of the road can all lead to devastating crashes.

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic head injury or a mild traumatic brain injury due to the neglect or negligence of another person or party, you may be entitled to receive money to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages.
