A truck accident has the potential to shatter your life completely. With their immense size, these vehicles can cause severe injuries and extensive damage upon impact. Tragically, numerous individuals in the United States find themselves hospitalized each year as a result of truck accidents. Many of these victims endure significant injuries that require immediate and long-term medical treatment.
Spinal cord injuries are a common injury reported in truck accidents, often leading to varying degrees of paralysis. These injuries can be classified as incomplete or complete, requiring victims to undergo therapy and rehabilitation to regain the use of their limbs in cases of incomplete injuries. In more severe instances, victims may permanently lose their ability to walk or perform daily tasks.
In addition to debilitating spinal cord injuries, truck accident victims frequently suffer brain injuries, broken bones, and internal organ damage. Any type of injury can have a profound impact on one’s life. The need for extensive medical care following a truck accident can be time-consuming and financially burdensome. In severe cases, medical costs can exceed $100,000.
