New Mexico Trucking Accidents on Interstates Cause High-Impact and Bone Crushing Injuries

Large commercial trucks like big rigs, flatbeds, tankers, 18-wheelers, tandem trailers, and other large trucks can cause very serious personal injuries.  This is particularly true on interstates like I-40, I-25, and I-10 which cut through New Mexico.  Major cities such as Albuquerque, New Mexico and Las Cruces, New Mexico are major hubs for traveling.  These super busy stretches of roadway result in very serious collisions which can cause horrific damages.  Some of the most common injuries are very serious broken bones or fractures, many resulting in permanent disability.

The large size and high speed of a commercial vehicle on I-40, I-25, or I-10 can cause a bone crunching collision.  Victims in smaller passenger vehicles can be absolutely crushed and impacted.  These trucking accident collisions can easily shatter bones and cause permanent disability.  Some common fractures include the following:

  • Skull fractures;
  • Spinal fractures, including compression fractures of the vertebra;
  • Orbital fractures, including total blowout fractures;
  • Rib fractures;
  • Pelvis fractures;
  • Crushed pelvis;
  • Arm fractures;
  • Crushed ankles;
  • Broken foot, including metatarsals or toes;
  • Tri-malleolar and bi-malleolar fractures;
  • Broken elbows;
  • Broken wrists;
  • Fractures hips;
  • Crushed femur; and
  • Many other types of fractures.

Treatment for catastrophically broken bones requires very serious medical treatment and can be on an emergency basis.  Surgery includes placing painful hardware including plates, pins, rods, and screws.  These surgeries can be incredibly painful and limiting, forcing victims to completely change their lives.
