Your hip is your largest joint and it is one of the most complex joints that you have. Your hip is also one of the most important joints because it is weight bearing and, even though you have a hip on each side, when one side of your hip is injured it will affect the other hip. While your hip joint is very sturdy, it is not impervious. Auto accidents are common causes of hip injuries, particularly New Mexico trucking accidents. Learn about the most common hip injuries from our Albuquerque auto accident lawyer and what it means for your case in our post here.
A hip replacement is a very serious and involved surgery that is due to extensive injuries to a person's hip. A hip replacement involves the end of the femur closest to the body (proximal) and the lower part of the pelvis (acetabulum). Victims of a New Mexico trucking accident who sustain serious injuries may need a hip replacement in catastrophic collisions.
