Understanding Brain Injuries in Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

Albuquerque Trucking Accidents Cause Serious Brain Injuries: Always Consult with an Experienced Albuquerque Trucking Accident Attorney

Brain injuries are very serious.  Our brain is arguably the most important organ.  It regulates everything we do, including subconsciously such as breathing and heartbeat.  In fact, the miracles of modern medicine can force you to breath on a mechanical ventilator if your lungs fail and force blood through your body if your heart fails, but modern medicine cannot make your brain come back to work again.  Indeed, once the brain dies and stops working it almost never turns back on.  This can automatically cause the brain to stop directing other organs to function.

Due to its great importance, the brain is encased in a shell of thick bone known as our skull.  There are layers surrounding the brain to keep it further protected from shock.  The brain also sits in cerebral fluid which helps keep further protect if from trauma and to keep if floating in the skull as opposed to rubbing against it.

Even though the brain is greatly protected, an Albuquerque trucking accident can cause even greater force on the body and squash the skull causing serious Brain injuries.  Even in low speed or light impact collisions the brain can be seriously injured.  In fact, the brain can be injured in an accident even if the head is not hit or impacted.  A severe and powerful whiplash which the head does not hit anything can cause the brain to rock violently back and forth in the skull and smash into it causing injury.  Yes, the brain can be injured without the head even being touched.
