Serious Albuquerque Car Accidents Can Easily Cause Amputations, Which Are Very Debilitating and Life-Changing Injuries 

All motor vehicle accidents carry the potential to cause very serious injuries.  Even low speed collisions can cause permanent injuries—an occupant not wearing his or her seatbelt can be launched through a windshield in a collision less than 10 MPH!  High speed collisions, particularly those involving large commercial trucks, can cause catastrophic injuries.  These injuries are commonly caused to extremities which get trapped in twisted wrecks of metal.  Unfortunately, these types of injuries can do such significant damage to an extremity that it can result in the need to amputate the extremity.
