Truck accidents occur at an alarming rate across the United States, resulting in thousands of people losing their lives every single year. Additionally, tens of thousands of others sustain life-altering injuries that change their lives forever. Due to the sheer size and weight of trucks, the likelihood of severe injuries is significantly increased. Some of the most commonly reported injuries following truck accidents include head and traumatic brain injuries, fractures and broken bones, severe lacerations and abrasions, neck and soft tissue injuries, back and spinal cord injuries, and internal organ damage or bleeding.
Victims of truck accidents often require extensive medical care and find themselves forced to remain in hospitals for several days after their accidents. Victims often have to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation.
