Common Truck Accident Injuries
On average, trucks are 20 to 30 times heavier than passenger cars. Consequently, injuries resulting from truck accidents tend to be more serious than injuries from accidents between passenger cars. Some common injuries from truck injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Head and neck injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Internal injury
Unfortunately, truck accidents also result in thousands of fatalities every year. If you have suffered injury or lost a loved one because of a truck accident caused by negligence or wrongful action, you deserve to get full and fair financial compensation for your damages. You may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and mental anguish.
Who is Responsible for My Truck Accident Injury?
To successfully make a truck accident injury claim, you must prove that the defendant in your case was the actual and proximate cause of your injury. Truck accidents can be very complex and often require extensive investigation to determine the proximate or legal cause of the accident. For example, the actual cause of the accident may be the truck driver’s loss of control of the truck, but further investigation may reveal a design or manufacturing defect was the proximate cause of the accident. To succeed in a truck accident injury case, identifying the proximate cause of the accident is critical.
