New research affects those with serious injury to the brain

In New Mexico and elsewhere, traumatic brain injury is all too common. It can result from an accident such as a fall or a motor vehicle crash. These types of injuries can negatively impact a person cognitively and emotionally. New research has focused on the drop in blood pressure that may occur for some people with serious injury to the brain.

Nursing home neglect suit filed following woman's death

A woman died earlier this year after she was placed in a nursing home in another state. Her family, therefore, recently decided to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the facility, alleging nursing home neglect. If people in New Mexico end up losing loved ones due to nursing facilities' carelessness, they have the right to take legal action.

Nursing home neglect suit settled after resident hit by van

A nursing home in a different state was sued for injuring a resident. The facility recently settled the suit in federal court. When nursing home neglect leads to a resident's injury in New Mexico or elsewhere, the resident retains the right to pursue claims for financial accountability from the facility.

Lawsuit filed after girl suffers serious injury to the brain

A woman in another state recently filed a personal injury lawsuit, alleging that her daughter suffered a traumatic brain injury in a school bus accident. The bus accident ended up killing six students. Several other students were also injured in the crash. If a person suffers serious injury to the brain due to another person's negligent behavior, it constitutes grounds for litigation in New Mexico and other states.

Nursing home neglect reportedly led to resident's death by fire

A man who was in an elder care facility in another state died in an accident reportedly caused by the facility itself. The man's wife has therefore filed a lawsuit in federal court against the nursing home, alleging nursing home neglect, which remains a real problem in New Mexico and elsewhere. Damages totaling $150,000 are being sought in the lawsuit.
