Teen with catastrophic injury discharged early from hospital

The family of an injured teenager says that their seriously injured 15-year-old son has been released to them from the hospital. Their son was in a serious accident that led to catastrophic injury to his brain, he was receiving treatment at the hospital since the car accident occurred last fall. While most families would be happy to get their son finally discharged from hospital care, this family disagrees. They say that their son is not yet medically fit to come home. Disagreements like this in New Mexico and elsewhere are common between insurance carriers and the individuals who rely on insurance money in the aftermath of a serious injury.

The military's approach to permanent damages from brain injury

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.

They are also suffered by car accident victims -- even to some who were only involved in a minor crash.

Minor brain injury may be serious injury in New Mexico accidents

The human body is complex and fragile, and sustaining any type of personal injury can cause devastating effects.
