Albuquerque Serious Injury Lawyer Can Help You and Your Loved Ones
A person may suffer serious injuries in a workplace accident a construction accident a slip/trip or fall accident, or due to any number of other causes. At Khayoumi Law Firm, we focus our efforts and our considerable energy on helping individuals who are seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents.
Serious Injuries Arising Out of Motor Vehicle Accidents
The speed and force of impact in a motor vehicle accident can cause serious bodily injury or even death. Serious injuries commonly arising out of motor vehicle accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Nerve damage;
- Traumatic brain injury;
- Herniated discs and related back injuries;
- Multiple broken bones; and
- Damage to internal organs.
Your Right to Compensation
If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident that results in serious injuries, you may be entitled compensation if you can establish negligence. “Negligence” means acting with unreasonable carelessness or failing to act in the way a reasonably prudent person would act under similar circumstances. If you are able to prove that the other driver’s negligence caused the harm you have suffered, then you may be entitled to recover compensation for your economic losses (medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, out-of-pocket expenses), as well as your non-economic losses (pain, suffering, emotional distress). In a serious injury case, those losses are likely to significant and their impact long-lasting.
A serious injury accident may render you unable to work for an extended period of time or leave you permanently disabled and unable to return to work at all. You may require multiple surgeries or other procedures; medical devices or home modifications; and long-term treatment and care. Moreover, the losses associated with a serious injury extend beyond the injured individual to his or her family members, whose lives are impacted as they are forced to take on new responsibilities and the role of caregiver. Thus, in a serious injury case, any compensation award must account for the catastrophic and potentially life-long consequences of the injury on the victim, as well as his or her family.
