Head Injuries Caused by New Mexico Trucking Accidents: What Types of Collisions are Most Likely to Cause Injury

Large big rigs like semi tractor trailers, double trailers, 18 wheelers, tankers, and other large commercial vehicles have the potential to cause catastrophic crashes. These New Mexico trucking accidents are powerful and can twist steel and dent engine blocks, which are large blocks of welded steel. It should be no surprise why occupants of smaller, passenger vehicles get seriously injured in big rig wrecks. One of the most common injuries is one to the head, which can result in facial nerve injuries, significant lacerations, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries.
