Many Albuquerque area residents know someone who has suffered from a brain injury. A brain injury is often catastrophic and can come from many sources. There are situations in which a brain injury is caused by negligence and families who are dealing with this situation may want to take legal action.

A brain injury can range from a concussion to a brain injury that causes catastrophic injuries and even death. There are many causes of a brain injury, most of them traumatic. They can include sports injuries, car accidents, falls, workplace accidents, etc. If it is suspected that a person has suffered from a brain injury there are many symptoms that they may exhibit. Symptoms of a brain injury can include excessive drowsiness, numbness, headache, weakness in arms or legs, vomiting, dizziness, and loss of consciousness.

Treatment for a brain injury depends on the severity of the injury. It can range from rest, medication, surgery, and rehabilitation. Some people are never able to recover from a brain injury and will need to spend the rest of their lives in assisted care. If a person’s brain injury was caused by another person’s negligence then the family may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help the family find out what happened to cause the injury and who is at fault. A brain injury can cost a family more than just emotional distress. A serious brain injury can lead to millions of dollars in unexpected expenses. An attorney can fight for a brain injury victim and make sure they receive the compensation they deserve.

Those who suffer a brain injury due to no fault of their own have the legal right to hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake. It can be a long, hard road to recover from a brain injury which is why a family may need to take legal action.
