Several symptoms point to serious injury to the brain

Traumatic brain injuries usually result from blows to the head -- for instance, when people hit their heads in car accidents. Serious injury to the brain occurs because the force is enough to cause the brain to shake inside of a person's skull. Unfortunately, these types of injuries can drastically affect a person's quality of life in New Mexico and other states.

Nursing home abuse grounds for civil lawsuit

Earlier this year, prosecutors in another state accused a guard at an elder care facility of committing assault against a resident at the home. The resident who was reportedly assaulted has also decided to fight back by suing the guard and the nursing home. Anyone in New Mexico or another state who has suffered nursing home abuse has the right to take legal action through the civil court system.

Samsung victim suffered permanent damages from burning phone

Few people in New Mexico will deny that burns are among the most excruciating injuries a person can suffer. Depending on how deeply into the skin the burn goes, the victim may be left with permanent damages such as physical scars and psychological trauma. Burns heal slowly and require specialized treatment that often adds even more pain to the already suffering patient. When burns occur as the result of a defective product, those enduring the suffering may seek some restitution.

Widow files nursing home neglect suit

A woman in a different state recently claimed that a nursing home caused her husband's death. She filed a lawsuit against the home, alleging that the facility failed to create an environment that would prevent accidents. Individuals who lose loved ones due to nursing home neglect in the United States, including in New Mexico, have the right to explore their legal options in an effort to right any wrong that was committed.

Research on serious injury to the brain focuses on brain tsunamis

Some researchers are currently looking at the brain to try to determine why some patients who suffer head injury in the United States, including in New Mexico, end up recovering while other patients do not. This phenomenon appears to be linked to what is known as a brain tsunami. This tsunami is essentially seizure-like waves that are damaging and that spread throughout the brain slowly after a serious injury.
