Common injuries in a truck crash

It should come as no surprise that the injuries in a truck accident are often significant. Weighing at roughly 20 times the weight of a passenger car, a commercial truck can cause a devastating impact to any vehicle, cyclist, or pedestrian it collides with. The injuries that occur in these cases can vary depending on the circumstances of the crash. Some common injuries include:

  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Internal bleeding
  • Paralysis and other spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Eye injuries
  • Road rash
  • Burns
  • Death
  • Amputations
  • Joint and ligament damage

No matter the injuries you endure, a truck accident lawyer could help you recover compensation from your accident.

Common factors in a truck accident

Some truck accidents result from moving violations that could happen to anyone. In other cases, these crashes are due to a truck driver failing to comply with commercial trucking regulations. In either case, a personal injury lawyer could help you pursue compensation by proving the truck driver was responsible for a crash. Some common factors in a truck crash include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Fatigued driving
  • Overweight vehicles
  • Poorly maintained vehicles
  • Following too closely
  • Negligent loading or unloading of cargo
  • Failing to yield
  • Defective equipment
  • Distracted driving

If your lawyer is unable to resolve your case with a settlement, a trial becomes the only option. To prevail at trial, they must establish the factors that led the truck driver in your case to be responsible for the crash.
