Common Truck Accident Injuries
Trucking accidents are among the most serious and deadly crashes that occur in the United States. When the operator of a 10,000-pound vehicle drives dangerously, it threatens the lives of every other person on the road.
Injuries sustained in trucking accidents range from minor cuts and bruises to severe disabilities and even death. Common truck accident injuries include:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck and back injury
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones
Causes of Semi Truck Accidents
Determining fault in a truck accident claim is usually more complex than an average automobile accident case. The fault of the crash could rest on the shoulders of the driver, the person who loaded the truck or the company responsible for training and maintenance. Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate your case to help determine if your accident was caused by:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving
- Substance abuse
- Insufficient driver training
- Improper truck maintenance
- Excess weight or improperly secured cargo
- Defective vehicle
