Top Three Worst Injuries Caused by a New Mexico Trucking Crash Ranked by Albuquerque Trucking Lawyer

Trucking crashes are simps devastating.  Large commercial trucks like 18 wheelers and big rigs can twist, bend, split, and pulverize other cars in trucking crashes.  Even a passenger vehicle’s engine block can be crushed into a small cube.  Imagine the catastrophic blow that a large truck can do to the soft flesh of a human.  Even small bumper taps are damaging, whereas interstate trucking crashes are nearly always result in fatal or serious injuries.

1. Worst Injury in New Mexico Trucking Crashes: Wrongful Death

The ultimate injury in a personal injury action is death.  There is nothing that can be fixed, reversed, or brought back after a patient has died.  Trucking crashes can result in horrific deaths such as those from serious and high speed impacts, crushing accidents, large fires, chemical burns, and other types.  While a lot of the times the victim may die on the side of the road, other times the victim may survive several hours, days, weeks, or even months in extreme pain and discomfort from the accident.  If this occurs, the medical bills will be high, the pain and suffering will be high, and the emotional distress on the victim and his or family will be unfathomable.

2. Second Worst Injury in New Mexico Trucking Crashes: Paralysis

Being unable to move or function is another horrible injury.  Quadriplegia and paraplegia not only force a lifestyle changes on a victim, but also change careers—if any can be salvaged, family dynamics, and medical expenses.  Paralyzed victims may be unable to move their extremities but also feel extreme and intolerable pain in their injured limb.  Victims could depend on other people to completely care for them, including basic thinks like eating, drinking, bathing, and getting dressed.  Severely paralyzed people could even become depressed of their new life.

3. Third Worst Injury in New Mexico Trucking Crashes: Traumatic Brain Injuries 

Even though the brain is encased in a shell of hard bone, it is very susceptible to serious injury in any motor vehicle crash.  This is because the brain can be injured even if the head is not struck when the head is whipped hard back and forth (whiplash).  But more commonly the brain is seriously injured when it is smashed into something during a trucking crash.  Traumatic brain injuries can be completely debilitating where a patient will need around the clock assistance from caretakers, or traumatic brain injuries can be debilitating and cause functional issues like memory, concentration, or cause headaches that impede a person’s daily activities.  In either situation, traumatic brain injuries can completely destroy a person’s life and disrupt a family completely.
