Truck Accidents Cause Serious Injuries
Truck accidents cause serious injuries, and these injuries can change your life. Some of the most common types of truck accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), resulting in cognitive, emotional, and physical impairment;
- Spinal cord injuries, causing permanent partial or complete paralysis;
- Back, neck, and soft tissue injuries, causing pain, immobility, and potential disability;
- Amputation and crush injuries, resulting in the loss of, or loss of use of, a limb;
- Internal injuries, causing serious internal bleeding and harm, with potential long-term consequences; and
- Scarring and disfigurement, which can have long-term psychological effects on a victim.
Of course, truck accidents also have the potential to be fatal, resulting in loss of support and services, companionship, parental guidance, income and earnings, and more for survivors and beneficiaries.
Truck Accidents are the Result of Negligence
Truck accidents don’t just happen – they are the result of someone’s failure to act in a reasonable and careful manner, which is called negligence. Examples of negligence that lead to truck accidents include speeding, improperly loading cargo into a truck, taking a turn at an unsafe speed, failing to properly maintain and service trucks, distracted driving, failing to train truck drivers properly, aggressively driving, and manufacturing a truck or truck part with a defect.
When the negligence of another party leads to your truck accident and injuries, our attorneys will be here to fight for your rights by investigating your crash, proving fault, and valuating your damages.
