Albuquerque residents are just as vulnerable to catastrophic injury in an accident as people in other areas of the country. Often, those who suffer a catastrophic injury in a serious accident never fully recover, and they must learn to deal with the debilitating conditions from which they may suffer for the rest of their lives. They may also be faced with having to pay for long-term medical care and face others costs associated with their injuries.
Individuals who are hurt in a serious accident may be able to seek financial compensation for their injuries if their injuries are attributed to another person or business' negligence. That negligence could stem from a person's involvement in a car accident or a manufacturer's failure to assure that its products are not defective. Negligence can also be cited when one is injured in a slip and fall due to dangerous premises or when one suffers needlessly at the hands of a medical professional.
At the Harvey & Foote Law Firm, we are experienced in dealing with all varieties of accidents and the injuries that stem from them. We help individuals who have had limbs amputated and those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries. We also help individuals suffering from paralysis, blindness and a wide variety of other types of injuries.
The decision to move forward with a catastrophic injury case following a serious accident is most certainly a personal one, but it can also be an economic one. For some, a successfully navigated personal injury case is the only way they can pay for the medical care they need to get better. In such cases, Albuquerque residents may also be able to seek money for lost wages, lost future earnings, scarring and disfigurement, lost enjoyment of life and many other categories of damages.
