Broken Leg from a New Mexico Trucking Accident

New Mexico Trucking Accidents Causing a Broken Leg

A broken leg or fractured leg is a very painful injury. And it will be painful for a long time, because the healing and recovery can take months. Some catastrophic injuries could still cause pain for years after a broken leg. This is because the bones in your leg are very strong. The femur is considered the strongest bone in your body, and it takes a lot of force to break a femur. While this is possible in any type of auto accident, it is incredibly more likely in a New Mexico trucking accident given the sheer size and forces generated in an 18 wheeler crash.

Trimalleolar Fracture From New Mexico Trucking Accident

Broken Ankles from New Mexico Trucking Accident: Understanding the Trimalleolar Fracture

One common type of injury from a New Mexico trucking accident is a broken ankle or a fractured ankle. This could be due to a few types of fractures, but one of the most painful, difficult to heal, and longest-lasting injury is a trimalleolar fracture. This is because large box trucks cause crushing damage to both the body but also to vehicles. It is common for a driver or passenger's legs or feet to get caught underneath the vehicle in a significant 18 wheeler wreck. Ankles are usually the weak spot of the body which will break when part of the vehicle is collapsed on top of a person, frequently such as a collapsed dashboard and steering column.

Most Common Broken Bones from Albuquerque Big Rig Crash: Albuquerque Trucking Accident Lawyer Discusses

An Albuquerque big rig crash can result in very significant injuries which can easily cause broken bones and fractured bones. This is because 18 wheelers like semi tractor trailers and box trucks are very heavy and moving very fast which generates a lot of force and momentum. This is particularly true on fast-moving highways and interstates, like I-40, I-25, and I-10 in New Mexico. One of the most common injuries our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyer handles are broken bones or fractured bones. There are many possible fractures which could occur, but this post explores some of the most common fractures which are somewhat unique to trucking wrecks due to the shear size and force of these vehicles.

Large commercial trucks pack a wallop when they collide with smaller, passenger vehicles. This is particularly true when the collision occurs on a fast-moving highway like one of New Mexico's busy interstates such as I-10, I-25, or I-40. Because of this, it is very likely that there will be serious personal injuries including wrongful death. One type of serious personal injury is a broken bone or fractured bone. There are many types of common broken bones from trucking crashes. These can be very painful, lead to months of recovery, and generate high medical bills. This is all while there will be lost wages and time from work. Some fractures are also life-threatening or limb-threatening, and can result in wrongful death or amputation.
