Shoulder Injuries Caused by Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

Albuquerque Trucking Accidents Can Cause Serious Personal Injuries and Even Death, Especially Shoulder Injuries Which are Common, Debilitating, and Painful

All motor vehicles can cause serious personal injuries.  However, tractor trailers, flatbeds, 18-wheelers, big rigs, tankers, and other large commercial trucks are more likely to cause very serious personal injuries than other, smaller vehicles.  One of the most common injuries caused in any motor vehicle accident is a shoulder injury.  This is because the shoulder is locked in with a seatbelt and, while the seatbelt can and will save an occupant’s life, a seatbelt can also cause shoulder injuries.  These injuries are more likely in trucking accidents because of the shear size of the truck and the force of the impact.

Common Shoulder Injuries Caused by Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

Even low speed trucking accidents can cause devastating injuries, particularly to the shoulder.  These injuries at low speeds are caused by the momentum that funnels through the truck and into the victim’s vehicle.  Given how the seatbelt locks a person in the vehicle, this can result in serious injuries such as tearing or even breaking tendons or bones.

Some common injuries caused by Albuquerque trucking accidents include the following:

  • Broken bones, such as the arm, clavicle; scapula, or other bones in the shoulder;
  • Torn biceps tendon(s) which connect at the shoulder;
  • Torn rotator cuffs;
  • Torn labrum;
  • Tendonitis;
  • Tendonosis;
  • Nerve impingement;
  • Nerve damage or tearing at the brachial plexus;
  • Need for arthroscopic surgery;
  • Loss of sensation in arm or fingers;
  • Amputation;
  • Intense scarring; and
  • Other relating injuries to the shoulder.
