Brain Injury Attorneys

Powerful & Proven Counsel for New Mexico’s Injured

New Mexico Brain Injury Lawyers

Setting Things Right for Victims of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The brain acts as the command center in the body, controlling thoughts, memory, speech, motor skills, and even the function of many organs. It works with the spinal cord to send and receive information and commands throughout the body. If the brain is damaged, its ability to perform these key functions may be compromised.

Brain injuries are catastrophic, often affecting every part of a victim's life.

If you or someone you love has experienced any level of brain damage or traumatic brain injury in an accident or any situation influenced by another’s negligence or wrongdoing, you deserve a chance to set things right. Our New Mexico brain injury attorneys at Arnold & Itkin are here to make this possible.

Brain Injury FAQ

What are some symptoms of brain damage?

When a person suffers head trauma or experiences a brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen or blood to the brain, he or she may exhibit specific symptoms. These may range from mild to severe and can affect memory, consciousness, vision, and more.

The following are symptoms of a potential brain injury:

  • Blurry vision
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Headache
  • Loss of consciousness

If you or someone you know was injured and is experiencing these symptoms, be sure to seek medical attention as soon as possible. We also recommend talking to an attorney about your right to compensation for medical care, lost earnings, and emotional trauma.

What causes brain injuries?

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death in the U.S. In 2014 alone, there were nearly 2.9 million emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and deaths related to TBI.

The leading causes of traumatic brain injury in the U.S. in 2014 were:

  • Falls (48% of TBI-related emergency department visits)
  • Motor vehicle accidents (20% of TBI-related hospitalizations)
  • Struck by/against an object (17% of TBI-related emergency department visits)

Closed or open head trauma, falls, and auto accidents may all cause traumatic brain injuries that leave victims facing uncertain futures.
