A TBI could get worse at the hospital

After a blow to the head, it is generally a good idea for you to go to a New Mexico hospital for a thorough examination. The signs of a serious brain injury may not be evident to you right away, and if left untreated, a bruise or bleeding in the brain can lead to permanent damage. We at Curtis & Lucero have often provided counsel for victims of traumatic brain injuries.

Social media and medical malpractice

People who require medical treatment typically expect that the medical professionals who care for them will fulfill their professional obligations to the best of their ability. Sadly, some medical professionals are negligent or are unable to carry out their job duties properly, whether they lack training, are short on time, or simply do not care. Victims of medical malpractice may face a wide range of hardships and can be very stressed out and even angry. Sometimes, people turn to social media to vent their feelings, but we know how important it is for medical malpractice victims to watch what they share online if they plan on taking their case to the courtroom.

Examining average doctor visit times

When people in Albuquerque go to visit the doctor's office, the expectation typically is that whoever sees them will sit down with them, listen intently to everything they have to say, and generally take as much time as is needed to make them feel completely comfortable. They often leave such visits, however, shocked at how little face-to-face time they get with the doctor. Indeed, research information shared by the Health Research and Education Trust shows the median doctor office visit time to be only 15.7 minutes. 

Robotic exoskeletons help paralyzed patients

For many individuals who suffer a catastrophic injury or debilitating disease that results in paralysis, the prognosis for returning function to their legs can be a dim one. However, recent advances in technology and medicine have seen some innovative applications that are helping some patients walk once again, which could give hope to those who have suffered from medical malpractice injuries.

What you should know before filing a wrongful death lawsuit

After losing a loved one in New Mexico due to a medical error, you may be struggling to take care of the end-of-life responsibilities such as arranging the funeral and settling the estate. Even if you know someone else should be held liable for the loss, it may seem overwhelming to try to prove this in court. We at Curtis & Lucero have often assisted victims' families with the legal process of receiving compensation due to them so that they are not devastated by the financial consequences of another's mistake.
