Truck accidents in Florida at least countless people with injuries every day. After a truck accident, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed and confused about who is responsible for the damages you or your loved ones have suffered. In most cases, there are several parties that could be held liable for the accident, including the driver of the truck, their employer, and even the manufacturer of the vehicle.
Unfortunately, truck accidents continue to cause serious injuries to innocent people every day. Due to the size and weight of commercial trucks, collisions with smaller vehicles often cause serious harm. One common injury from truck accidents is whiplash, which can limit a victim’s range of motion and cause overwhelming pain.
Another common injury is broken bones, especially in the arms, legs, and ribs. These injuries can cause significant pain and require extensive medical treatment. In many cases, victims have to go through therapy and rehabilitation.
Traumatic brain injuries are also frequently seen after truck accidents due to the force of impact on a victim’s head. This type of injury can have long-lasting effects on a person’s memory, balance, and even their mood.
Spinal cord damage is another potential outcome that may occur following a collision with a commercial vehicle. This kind of injury could result in partial or complete paralysis for an accident victim who survives this type of catastrophic event.
