A previous post on this blog reminded readers that not all motorcycle accidents in Bernalillo, New Mexico, end with a driver being paralyzed or suffering from a severe head injury.
As this blog has discussed previously, injuries to motorcyclists following an accident are often catastrophic. After a motorcycle crash, a motorcyclist in the Albuquerque area may suffer from a head injury or spinal cord injury that leaves him or her permanently disabled. In these sorts of cases, it is quite obvious to the general public that the motorcyclist needs help and financial support.
Cerebral palsy is a very serious condition that can leave a child unable to walk or, in milder cases, get around normally for all of his or her life. Although it affects the child's ability to control his or her muscular movements, it is in fact a brain condition that people used to think was caused by oxygen deprivation during the birth process.
When a person is asked to think of the most important things in their life, most people think of their family. When family members start to get older and have a difficult time caring for themselves due to ailing health, a medical facility or long-term care facility - sometimes known as a nursing home - is often a viable option. Some struggle with the idea of placing loved ones in a care facility. This is completely understandable, especially when horror stories related to nursing home neglect come to light.
