Most Common Catastrophic Injuries in New Mexico Trucking Wrecks Caused by Negligent Truck Drivers
When serious and catastrophic injuries are caused by the negligence of another it can make you feel frustrated, angry, and even hopeless. These injuries are usually permanent, extremely debilitating, and horrific for victims and their families. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries from New Mexico trucking wrecks which our New Mexico trucking wreck lawyer handles include the following two worst injuries:
Head and brain injuries – Injuries to the head such as traumatic brain injuries warrant special consideration and attention. This if because, first, injuries to the head can easily kill a victim of a trucking wreck. The brain governs the entire body, and injuries here can result in the wrongful death of a person. Second, injuries to the head and brain are not always easily diagnosed and require neurological testing and experts to prove. This is because injuries to your cognitive ability to process information, remember, focus, and even function normally do not show up in an x-ray. Third, head and brain injuries can also damage and control all aspects of your body even with little injuries, which mean that head injuries can effect nerves and parts of your body on the opposite end such as your legs or feet. All head and brain injuries are very serious examples of catastrophic personal injuries.
Loss of Limb from Amputation or Paralysis – Anytime a victim loses a limb, either physically in an amputation or functionally due to paralysis such as due to paraplegia or quadriplegia, a victim’s entire life will change greatly. These are very serious and significant injuries which cannot be brought back. Sometimes everything that a victim previously could do now requires assistance after the injury. In very severe cases, victims can be completely bedridden or wheelchair bound after enjoying an active life. This can have dramatic effects on a person’s future life expectancy, income and lost wages, and even his or her emotional well-being. These are one of the worst catastrophic injuries which are very common in New Mexico trucking wrecks, particularly on highways or interstates.
