• Common Truck Accident Injuries and What You Can Do If You Have Been Injured

    Every driver has had the experience of suddenly seeing a massive 18-wheeled truck looming in their rear-view mirror or passing them at high speed on the interstate. The sheer size and force of these vehicles can inspire tremendous fear, and for those who have the misfortune of actually being involved in an accident with one of these monsters, the resulting injuries can be life-changing, and even deadly. The most common truck accident injuries can lead to enormous medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.  If you or someone you love has been the victim of a truck accident, it is essential that you put your case into the hands of a highly qualified attorney who will work hard to make sure that your case is thoroughly investigated to determine who is at fault. If your accident was the result of negligence on the part of the truck driver, the owner of the trucking company, or any other party involved in the operation and maintenance of the truck, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the injuries that you have suffered. Call the attorneys at Jarvek, Kaplan, Granato & Starr to learn more about how we can get you the justice you deserve.

    Because tractor trailers are so enormous and travel at such high rates of speed, when they are involved in an accident they can cause tremendous physical injury and pain to the occupants of the cars that they collide with. Some of the most common truck accident injuries are a result of driver fatigue, driver distraction, improperly trained drivers, and substance abuse on the part of drivers. Accidents frequently involve speeding and driver unfamiliarity with the roads that they are traveling on, blind spots and failure to adhere to basic safety measures.

    All of these represent driver negligence.

    Some of the most common truck accident injuries include:

    • Bone fractures
    • Cuts or lacerations
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Abdominal injuries and injuries to internal organs
    • Head and neck injuries
    • Burns
    • Traumatic brain injuries
    • Crushing injuries and amputations

    The injuries that are sustained by the occupants of passenger cars involved in accidents with trucks can be catastrophic, and often lead to the need for extensive medical treatment, hospitalization, and rehabilitation. Some victims of truck accidents never fully recover, and require long-term care or live with pain for the rest of their lives.
