Common Trucking Accident Injuries: Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyers


November 20, 2019

 by Caruso Law Offices, P.C. | 

Commercial vehicles like 18 wheelers, tractor trailers, big rigs, and other box trucks are more likely than smaller, passenger vehicles to inflict serious injury.  This is because big commercial vehicles are heavier and generate more momentum.  Thus, collisions with 18 wheelers are significantly more forceful and damaging.  This is particularly true on fast-moving highways and interstates such as I-10, I-25, and I-40, where tractor trailers generate massive amounts of momentum in impacts given the high speed they are traveling.  Our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers explain what the common trucking accident injuries are and how we can help protect your rights to compensation below.

What are Common Trucking Accident Injuries?

There are many possible trucking accident injuries.  The ultimate personal injury is wrongful death which is unfixable and devastating to the entire family.  The most common are catastrophic personal injuries.  These are the type of trucking accident injuries which have a profound affect on a person’s ability to function physically, emotionally, or even financially after a collision.  This is because catastrophic injuries typically affect how a person’s daily life will be in the future, including career and work.

The most common catastrophic injuries after a New Mexico trucking accident that our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers see include the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), including concussions, diffuse axonal injuries, coup-contrecoup injuries, penetrating injuries, and other catastrophic head injuries and damage to the brain;
  • Amputations, including the loss of an entire major limb like an arm or leg, as well as loss of a foot or hand;
  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis due to paraplegia, quadriplegia, or other forms of partial or complete paralysis; and
  • Many other catastrophic injuries.

There are also many other non-catastrophic but still very significant injuries that could be caused by a New Mexico trucking accident.  These injuries may still result in months or years of disability, including an inability to work or function independently on a daily basis.  Some of the most common serious personal injuries due to a New Mexico trucking accident that our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers handle include the following:

  • Broken bones;
  • Nerve injuries, including brachial plexus injuries;
  • Organ injuries, including ruptures;
  • Significant disfigurement;
  • Burn injuries;
  • Knee injuries like torn meniscus or ACL, LCL, MCL, or PCL;
  • Shoulder injuries, including SLAP tears, labrum tears, and rotator cuff tears; and
  • Other serious types of personal injuries.
