Truck Accidents Cause Life-Changing Injuries

Few big-rig accidents only cause minor injuries to occupants of other cars. A truck driver may emerge unharmed or with minor injuries, but the driver and passengers in another vehicle involved in a collision with a truck are often seriously injured with:

  • Fractured or crushed bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Burn injuries

Such injuries may require surgery, lengthy hospitalizations and extensive physical therapy. Costs easily soar to many thousands of dollars. Legal counsel is paramount for people seriously injured in truck accidents.

Caruso Law Offices, P.C., in Albuquerque has the knowledge, experience and reputation many injury victims and their families are looking for in the aftermath of a truck accident. Our lawyers fight for our clients' rights under New Mexico law to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Prompt medical attention, and ongoing treatment and care are essential after a serious injury. To help ensure that your case goes as well as it can, follow doctors' orders and do your best to recover as fast as you can. Caruso Law Offices, P.C., can refer you to doctors who will treat you without being paid until you recover compensation.

Some truck accident victims' lives are permanently altered by their injuries. This is true in the case of catastrophic injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia)
  • Amputations

Life is never the same after a catastrophic injury. Expenses can seem never-ending as a post-accident individual is perpetually in need of:

  • Personal care attendants' services
  • Durable medical equipment, such as a wheelchair and a lift
  • Disability accommodations, such as a wheelchair ramp, alterations to kitchens and bathrooms (adding bars and lowering countertops), widened doorways, a modified van and more
  • Ongoing therapy
  • Frequent medical attention for post-accident complications such as infections and chronic nerve pain

A diligent inspection of an accident in light of requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) can help uncover evidence needed to construct a compelling injury claim or lawsuit. Caruso Law Offices, P.C., is committed to knowledgeable, effective advocacy on behalf of people who have suffered serious and catastrophic injuries in New Mexico truck accidents.
