Broken Bones Are Common Injuries in New Mexico Trucking Accidents and Can Lead to Serious, Permanent, and Prolonged Future Injuries
No one wants to be in any motor vehicle accident. But if someone had to choose, he or she certainly would pick anything but a trucking accident with a tractor trailer, flatbed, tanker, or other large commercial truck. These vehicles are massive and have a lot of momentum. This means that force behind the truck needs to be dispersed into whatever it hits. Frequently this means smaller passenger vehicles are mangled and shredded in trucking accidents. This causes catastrophic injuries to victims, commonly including broken bones.

Reasons Why Broken Bones Occur in New Mexico Trucking Accidents
Given that commercial trucks are quite large, heavy, and move fast on highways or interstates, it is clear why broken bones are common injuries. Smaller passenger vehicles just get crumpled in trucking accidents which causes crushing injuries. These types of crushing injuries easily break bones, even at low speed.
This is because of physics and momentum. The momentum of a tractor trailer needs to be completely dispersed for it to stop. Usually this is achieved by its braking system. But in the event of a crash, the momentum of transferred into whatever the truck hits. This literally bends metal and scatters bone.
Trucking accidents also cause broken bones just from the shear fact that most trucks are on highways or interstates. This means the truck is moving at a fast rate of speed. Not only does this increase momentum, but this reduces reaction time. This makes an accident more likely and more dangerous.
