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.

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

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.
