Rear End Albuquerque Truck Crash Causing Spinal Cord Injuries
Your spinal cord is one of the most important structures in your body that most people do not consider until they have an injury. This is the longest segment of your central nervous system, and originates at the base of your brain/skull and extends down into your lumbar back (lower back). This is the major signal highway between your peripheral nerves and your brain. Your spinal cord is encased in a column of hardened bone which is meant to protect it from the most powerful of impacts. Unfortunately, even a low speed rear end Albuquerque truck crash could result in significant injury to your spinal cord. This could be due to a whiplash injury, or the sheer impact of a heavy 18 wheeler. Coupled with the fact that a rear end auto accident places undue stress on the spine, when a large big rig is involved the likelihood of serious injury if high.
