Common injuries sustained in truck accidents

Because they are so much bigger than normal passenger vehicles, trucks do a lot of damage in a collision. Sadly, this is often in the form of serious injuries such as:

  • Disfigurement
  • Limb amputation because of crushing, loss of blood flow, or severing
  • Blunt force trauma, whiplash or other brain and head injuries
  • Spinal cord damage such as paralysis
  • Broken tibia, arm, clavicle, fibula, hip, back disk, pelvis or skull bones

These injuries lead to extensive physical and emotional trauma, especially since they almost always go along with expensive treatments like surgery and physical therapy.

Some truck accident victims spend hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars on their injuries, damages, and losses, and most insurance companies would not cover all of it. This leaves victims and their families trying to pay these exorbitant bills while dealing with the trauma of the accident itself.

However, with the help of our Chalmette truck accident lawyers, victims can seek compensation, and focus on rebuilding their lives.

How do truck accidents happen?

Truck accidents are more common than you might think, even though there are special government agencies dedicated to keeping roads safe. Why do these terrible accidents happen? The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration estimates that about a third of truck accidents are because of driver error such as:

  • Impaired driving
  • Jack-knifing
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Speeding
  • Falling asleep while driving
  • Tailgating
  • Loss of control
  • Medical disability
  • Lane departure
  • Poor judgment

In most of these cases, the driver would be held liable or at fault. However, there are other instances in which the trucking company, manufacturer, shipper, or even the maintenance company can also be found liable.
