Wrongful Deaths are Common in Interstate Trucking Accidents, but Some Injuries Commonly Result in Deaths more than Others
Interstate trucking accidents are incredibly dangerous. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Interstate 40 and Interstate 25 cut through the city which bring large commercial trucks such as tractor trailers, tankers, flatbeds, tandem trailers, 18-wheelers, and other large trucks. Due to the high speed on the interstates, collisions with these trucks can result in horrific and catastrophic injuries resulting in death. Many times the culprits include some of the nation’s largest trucking companies, including FedEx, the United Parcel Service, Estes, Ryder, J.B. Hunt, and many others.

Common Injuries from Albuquerque Trucking Accidents Resulting in Death
Death is the ultimate injury in any motor vehicle accident. Unfortunately, Albuquerque trucking accidents occurring on Interstate 40 or Interstate 25 frequently result in serious injuries causing death. That is, sometimes death does not occur right away. Sometimes victims will languish in pain for months if not years prior to succumbing to their injuries. This can cause horrific pain and suffering which can allow the victim’s family to seek a considerable verdict in a New Mexico wrongful death case.
Some of the common injuries that frequently result in wrongful death include the following:
- Burn injuries, including internal burn injuries such as to the throat or lungs caused by inhalation;
- Organ damage;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Large cuts or lacerations resulting in massive infections;
- Head injuries resulting in hemorrhaging or brain bleeds;
- Paralysis or quadriplegia;

- Crushing injuries;
