Owners of 2013 and 2014 Nissan models in New Mexico may have a reason to refrain from driving with passengers. According to the auto manufacturer, a defect in its computer-controlled airbag deployment system increases the risk of serious injury in the event of a car accident. In certain affected models the passenger-side airbag may fail to deploy.
Nursing home neglect is a serious problem in New Mexico, and when it comes to preventing these situations, one might argue that no amount of regulation is too much. In one out-of-state nursing home neglect case, regulators are doing just that as officials try to improve conditions at the facility. In their attempts to hold the institution up to standard, regulators have levied fines against the home of $33,000 and forced it to spend $50,000 in renovations.
Fines in the amount of $1,730 have been levied against an out-of-state nursing home regarding the physical abuse of its residents. The nursing home abuse allegations also include claims of verbal abuse and negligence relating to the failure to report rashes to doctors for multiple days. Patients in New Mexico are suffering from nursing home abuse and other atrocities as well. While the law is on the side of victims, many such cases go unreported, and the abuse may continue unchecked.
A traumatic brain injury is nothing that anyone expects to experience, and it is not usually until a family member suffers one that New Mexico residents begin to learn about them. Unfortunately, permanent damages associated with brain injuries, even mild ones, can arise after someone was injured in a foreign war. They are also suffered by car accident victims -- even to some who were only involved in a minor crash.
