Spinal Fusions Caused by Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

Albuquerque Trucking Accidents Can Cause Serious, Permanent, and Debilitating Injuries Including the Need for a Spinal Fusion

Big rigs.  18-wheelers.  Double-trailers.  Tankers.  Flatbeds.  Semi-trucks.  Tractor-trailers.  There are all very large and dangerous commercial trucks used by some of the largest trucking companies in the United States, including Schneider, Estes, US Parcel, FedEx, J.B. Hunt, and other companies.  These large trucks are all over our highways and interstates delivering cargo and goods throughout the county, including in New Mexico on I-40, I-25, and I-10.

With their sheer size and heavy weight, these large trucks can cause very serious, permanent, and debilitating injuries to victims of trucking crashes.  Our experienced Albuquerque trucking accident attorneys at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C. know how catastrophic these trucking crashes can be.  We have handled many cases which have resulted in a spinal fusion, which is a permanent and incredibly debilitating injury for any person to have to sustain.  If you or a loved one have been serious injured and require a spinal fusion due to a trucking crash in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Roswell, or anywhere else in New Mexico, call us today for a FREE consultation by dialing (505) 883-5000.

What are Spinal Fusions in Trucking Crash Cases?

Trucking crashes cause spinal fusions to innocent patients.  A spinal fusion is exactly what it sounds like.  A surgeon will go in and fuse several vertebrae together to form one.  This is done because of the damage to the area which causes serious nerve, muscle, and back pain every time the vertebrae wiggle or move together.  So by fusing the vertebrae together, the vertebrae no longer move to cause pain to the nerves, muscle, or other back pain.

To achieve this, a surgeon usually move cut out part of the vertebrae and remove the jelly-like disc in between the vertebrae.  Next, the surgeon will either use cement, a synthetic disc, or bone/tendon from another part of the victim’s body and place it in the empty space.  Then a surgeon will install pedicle screws along the left and right said of all vertebrae to be fused together.  The surgeon will then thread a metal rod through those screws in a straight line, and tighten them so they do not move.  Now the vertebrae will be permanently fused.

As you can appreciate from the description, this is a horrifying and incredibly devastating procedure on a victim.
