Three Common Catastrophic Injuries in Albuquerque Car Accidents

In New Mexico car accidents, the most serious kinds of personal injuries that result are known as “catastrophic injuries.” The severity of these injuries can require medical treatment and long-term care that is needed for decades or even permanently.

This reality makes it all the more important to choose the best catastrophic injury attorney in Albuquerque. I am a catastrophic injury lawyer who fights for the rights of accident victims and their loved ones to receive the maximum compensation they legally deserve.

My clients know that no matter their catastrophic injury, I represent accident victims with integrity and professionalism, all while simplifying the process and taking the stress away from accident victims. That way, my clients can focus on healing and spend time with loved ones while I use all legal avenues to pursue maximum compensation.

Be sure to reach out to me immediately if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident and suffered from any of the following catastrophic injuries:

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Each year, an estimated 1.7 million individuals sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI), and TBI is a contributing factor to nearly 1 in 3 injury-related deaths in the United States. The leading cause of TBI-related death is caused by traffic accidents, according to findings from the CDC.

Serious injuries to the head and brain may not be immediately apparent after an accident, which is why I always advise my clients to seek medical attention by a medical doctor after an accident, even if you believe your injuries are minor.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Serious car and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, accounting for more than 35% of new spinal cord injuries each year.

Accidents that cause damage to any part of the spinal cord or spinal canal nerves may cause permanent changes in an accident victim’s strength and ability to get through a day pain-free or even function regularly like they could pre-accident. The severity of these injuries can lead to significant compensation, and I ensure my clients receive a fair settlement offer that takes the severity of a spinal cord injury into account.

Loss of Limb from Amputation or Paralysis

If an Albuquerque car accident victim’s injuries are severe enough to cause the loss of a limb or paralysis, it goes without saying that the victim’s life has been permanently changed. This reality is often the case for any victim of a catastrophic injury.

Victims of these accidents deserve the very best Albuquerque catastrophic injury lawyer, and that is precisely the service I aim to provide to clients who have been injured in a devastating accident.
