Truck Accident Injuries
Due to their colossal size, commercial trucks can cause large-scale accidents and serious injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered any of the following injuries in a truck crash, you likely have grounds for a case against the at-fault party:
- Severe burns
- Cuts and lacerations
- Broken or fractured bones
- Head and brain trauma
- Back and spine injuries
- Paralysis, partial or full
- Loss of limbs or part of a limb
- Neck injuries, including whiplash
As mentioned, it is also common for a truck accident to result in death. If you have been bereft by another’s negligence, you may be compensated for funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses related to your bereavement, through a wrongful death case.
What Causes Trucking Accidents?
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Alcohol and drug use
- Overloaded trucks
- Defective truck parts
- Improper truck maintenance
Each of these causes can be traced back to negligence, either on the part of the trucking company or one of its employees. Other times, passenger car drivers or truck parts manufacturers may be found negligent and, therefore, liable for a crash. It all depends on whose actions caused the accident.
