Kick in the Face Ends in Slap in the Face

Our New Mexico personal injury lawyers, have seen hundreds upon thousands of cases. Nonetheless, every once in a while a personal injury case arises that results not only in shock, but a bit of a smile.

One such case involves a resent Florida resident who settled a $650,000 claim for a traumatic injury to his face that caused double vision and broke numerous bones. Clearly this is not funny. However, the humor exists when the cause of the injury comes to light.

Apparently, the plaintiff sustained his serious injury while a patron at a strip club. The broken bones did not occur from an overzealous bouncer, but rather a stripper who incorporated a kick move into the routine. The problem is that the kick move landed her metal healed shoe into the man's face.

Just makes you think...

New Mexico Thanksgiving Injuries

New Mexico injuries and thanksgiving ideally do not go together. However, while most people try to have a safe holiday, there are certain risks of injuries that are more likely to occur on Thanksgiving than other days of the year. The Olympia Medical Center released their top five Thanksgiving injuries that are likely to occur during celebrations.

Not surprisingly, topping the list is heartburn. To avoid that casualty, doctors recommend not laying down to watch football after the festive meal and avoiding eating too much. As if that is possible. Nest on the list is weight gain. Not much of a surprise there.

Third is choking which they recommend can be avoided by not talking, drinking, or laughing. That really sounds like a great holiday gathering. Perhaps they should recommend no eye contact as well.

The list is rounded out with excessive drinking and finally cuts and burns. Essentially, from a New Mexico drunk driving lawyer's perspective, excessive drinking is the big one to look out for here.

Some of the posts on our injury lawyer blog are helpful or at the very least informative. This is neither of those. Regardless, happy thanksgiving.
