Common truck accident injuries

The extra weight and overall size of trucks mean that they can cause very serious injuries which can include:

  • Bone fractures in hip, pelvis, skull, back disks, clavicle, tibia, arms, fibula, femur, and ribs
  • Spinal cord damage such as full or partial paralysis
  • Amputation of limbs due to crushing., loss of blood flow, or severing
  • Disfigurement
  • Brain and head damage from blunt force trauma or whiplash

These serious injuries usually mean serious hospital time and expensive medical bills. Truck accident victims sometimes see medical bills ranging from $200,000 to the millions. Insurance generally covers some of these costs, but usually– not even close to the full amount. That’s where a personal injury case comes in.

Truck accident victims can seek monetary compensation for damages and losses, including medical bills, missed work, property damage and others.

How do truck accidents happen?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states that almost a third of truck accidents are because of driver-related issues, such as:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Driving while impaired
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Failure to follow right of way rules
  • Tailgating
  • Jack-knifing
  • Improperly packed cargo
  • Bad vehicle maintenance
  • Lane departure
  • Vehicle mechanical failure
  • Speeding

The most common negligent parties in truck accident cases are the driver, the trucking company, truck maintenance company, or manufacturer. The government can also sometimes be found negligent if the roads were poorly maintained, and this led to the accident.

A Crowley truck accident attorney will investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine what happened, and who is at fault. It’s vital to have someone on your side, acting in your best interest, and fighting for your rights.
