Your skull is arguably the most important bone in your body. Well, group of bones. This is because your skull protects your brain. Without your skull, your brain would be susceptible to catastrophic damage even in minor impacts. There are eight bones that form the cranial portion of the skull which protect the brain. These bones are strong and thick, but they are not impenetrable. Collisions with large commercial trucks like 18 wheelers, box trucks, tankers, big rigs, and other box trucks can easily cause skull fractures. These skull fractures can be life-threatening and lead to catastrophic injury. Learn about these types of New Mexico trucking accidents from our Albuquerque trucking accident lawyers here.
