Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious and debilitating condition that can have permanent negative consequences. Recently, a great deal of attention has been brought to TBI and its numerous symptoms by professional athletes who have suffered from the condition. This has helped individuals who do not work in the medical field — and individuals who have not suffered a serious accident involving TBI — to understand the condition.
Harvey & Foote is a law firm operating in New Mexico, and we are committed to helping individuals who suffered brain injuries as a result of their involvement in an accident caused by another person’s negligence or unlawful behavior. The most common way that traumatic brain injury occurs is in workplace accidents, motorcycle accidents and car accidents. However, TBI can also happen in a slip-and-fall incident and other types of accidents.
TBI can result in life-long debilitating conditions like full or partial paralysis, cognitive deficits and other types of disabilities. Often, a brain injury leads to individuals requiring costly medical services. In the most serious cases, an individual requires round-the-clock medical care to stay alive.
At Harvey & Foote we work with highly specialized medical experts who can serve as expert witnesses in court where necessary. These experts can give their opinions to support personal injury claims for TBI victims when appropriate. We also use accident reconstruction experts when needed to fully illuminate how an accident occurred and who was to blame for the incident in court.
If you have been in a serious accident your initial consultation with Harvey & Foote will be absolutely free. We also work with New Mexico personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis. What that means is that our clients will not have to pay a dime in attorneys’ fees unless we are able to obtain financial relief on your behalf.
