Your back is vulnerable in any type of motor vehicle accident, particularly an Albuquerque trucking accident with a large commercial truck like a semi tractor trailer, 18 wheeler, double trailer, big rig, or other large box truck. This is particularly true on fast-moving highways such as I-40, I-25, and I-10, where the size and weight of the large truck is multiplied. This means that occupants of a smaller passenger vehicle may sustain a serious spinal cord injury as a result of a big rig wreck. Not only does this cause intense pain and suffering, but this can also result in significant medical bills, lost wages, lost earning, and other damages.

The spinal cord originates at the base of your skull at the bottom of your brain, and continues down your back. It is protected by the vertebrae of your back, which are very strong bones that form your spine. The spine is divided into five main sections. The first 8 vertebrae are the cervical spine, which is your neck. The next 12 are the thoracic spine, which is the top/mid of your shoulders down to the curve of your back. Next are the five largest vertebrae which is the lumbar spine, which is where the spinal cord ends. The bottom is made up of the sacrum, which is a series of fused vertebrae. Finally is the coccyx, or tailbone, which is also fused.
