Albuquerque Trucking Accidents Can Result in Very Serious Personal Injuries Resulting in Permanent Disabilities that a Victim Can Obtain Compensation For

Large commercial trucks such as 18 wheelers, big rigs, tandem trailers, flatbeds, tankers, and other types of tractor trailers can cause very serious personal injuries in an Albuquerque trucking accident.  That is because their sheer size is enough to cause forceful impacts even at low speeds because of momentum.  On highways such as the interstates throughout New Mexico, large commercial trucks can do significant damage to anything they collide with which can result in permanent disabilities to victims.

Here at the Mark Caruso, we have handled many cases involving victims with very serious and permanent disabilities caused by an Albuquerque trucking accident.  We know that all injuries can place serious burdens on a victim and his or her family, but injuries causing permanent disabilities can be the most hardships.  We work hard to zealously represent families so they can focus on healing.  Call us today for a FREE consultation by dialing (505) 883-500 to learn how we can help you or a loved one get the maximum compensation you may be entitled to for for permanent disabilities caused in a trucking accident.

Common Types of Injuries in Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

There are many different types of injuries which could be caused in a trucking accident.  Simply put, it is very easy for these injuries to cause permanent disabilities.  The impact and damage can be catastrophic.  Some very common types of permanent disabilities include the following:

  • Paraplegia;
  • Quadriplegia;
  • Vision loss;
  • Organ injuries;
  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Scaring;
  • Nerve injuries, including brachial plexus injuries;
  • Skull fractures and orbital blowout fractures requiring steel plates;
  • Fractures requiring hardware like bars, pins, screws, and plates;
  • Chemical burns damaging senses of smell or taste;
  • Hearing loss from explosions;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Loss of eyes;
  • Spinal fusions including cervical fusions and lumber fusions;
  • Loss of range of motion for extremities; and
  • Death.

All of these injuries will cause hardship and possibly require continued future medical expenses.  This can be very expensive, especially when the injuries will result in future surgeries in ten or more years down the road.  These can be compensated for in a personal injury lawsuit to ensure there is compensation to help pay for those surgeries.
