Injuries that are commonly associated with trucking accidents

| Jan 14, 2020 | Uncategorized

Trucking accidents tend to be more serious than car accidents. This is usually because of the vehicle’s size, speed and the impact that it can cause. Because of this, those who have been involved in truck accidents tend to suffer more catastrophic injuries.

If you or a loved one has suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of being involved in a truck accident, you must understand how to go about claiming damages. By showing that the fault lay with another party, it may be possible to make a claim that results in a significant amount of compensation to cover medical bills and to acknowledge the pain and suffering caused. The following are some of the injuries that are most commonly associated with truck accidents.

Spinal cord injuries

When the spinal cord becomes damaged, it can have a huge effect on the rest of the body. Depending on what part of the spinal cord is damaged, it can lead to partial, temporary or complete paralysis. In some cases, the paralysis can recede through surgeries and physical therapy, but recovery can take many years.

Back and neck injuries

The neck is very fragile, and when involved in a big impact such as a collision with a truck, it can easily become injured. Whiplash is common in truck accidents. This leads to pain and sensitivity that can last for some time after the crash.

Amputation or disfigurement

The impact itself could cause a direct bodily impact that may lead to amputation or disfigurement. Catastrophic injuries such as these will have a huge effect on the victim’s quality of life for many years to come.

Internal injuries

The airbags designed to protect us can cause injuries themselves. The strong force of an airbag can cause blunt abdominal trauma. This could lead to injuries to the bladder, pancreas, kidneys or liver.

You must not delay taking action when it comes to claiming damages after a catastrophic truck accident. By doing so, you may be able to get funds that will help you to live the highest possible quality of life despite your injuries.
