Union County, New Mexico is home to the small town of Clayton, which is also the county seat.
Situated in northeastern New Mexico, Clayton measures less than five square miles in size, and is home to fewer than 3,000 people. The town is also situated at a crossroads for tourists traveling from Texas to Colorado, as well as those traveling to the cities of Taos and Santa Fe.
Those navigating the roadways in and around Clayton may face any number of risks, including the risk of an accident with other drivers, which can result in personal injury. This includes automobile accidents, as well as accidents with trucks or motorcycles.
Truck Accidents & Spinal Cord Injuries
When accidents involving large trucks occur, like tractor-trailers or semi-trucks, they have the potential to cause devastating, if not debilitating, personal injury. One such injury that is consistent in severe truck accident cases is spinal cord injury.
Spinal cord injuries can occur in virtually any accident, if the circumstances are severe enough. However, many spinal cord injuries occur in auto collisions, especially truck accidents, where the vehicles involved are significantly larger and capable of greater damage and destruction.
Because the spine plays such an important role in the body, spinal cord injuries are considered quite severe, with victims often require ongoing professional care for the rest of their lives.
Although many spinal cord injury victims may never fully recover, there are many cases where the spinal cord may be partially damaged. This can cause victims a great deal of pain, but there is the chance to regain any lost function through rehabilitation and physical therapy.
Unfortunately, such medical care comes at a cost – one that many victims may not be properly equipped to handle. As a result, if you or someone you know has been involved in a truck accident that resulted in personal injury, it is imperative that you consult with a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
