Injuries and Fatal Accidents

Large trucks are called by many names, but whether it is a big rig, semi truck, tractor trailer, or 18-wheeler, their immense size and weight makes them very dangerous in the event of a truck collision. The occupants of smaller passenger vehicles have little protection against a massive 80,000 pound big rig and are often the victims of serious injuries and even death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 296,000 large truck crashes nationwide in 2009. Of these, 53,000 were injury accidents.

Semi Truck Crash Causes

Tractor trailers pose a safety hazard to motorists, which is why they are strictly regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Even with these regulations and the proven danger of unsafe vehicles or negligent drivers, many truck manufacturers still produce vehicles with defective parts, truck operators still drive carelessly or recklessly, and trucking companies still overload their trailers and conduct other dangerous, profit-centered, and often illegal practices. Anyone injured in a truck crash caused by another party’s negligence has the right to hold the at-fault party accountable for their losses.

Types of Injuries

Truck collisions are more likely to cause serious injuries than accidents involving smaller passenger vehicles, not only because they are bigger and heavier, but also because they pose specific accident threats, such as underride and jackknife accidents. A person involved in a truck crash may suffer a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Bumps and bruises;
  • Abrasions;
  • Burn injuries;
  • Cuts and lacerations;
  • Fractured bones;
  • Crushed bones;
  • Spinal cord injury;
  • Brain injury;
  • Head injury;
  • Internal bleeding and other internal injuries; and
  • Amputation injuries.

After a Truck Injury Accident

Seeking medical attention is the most important step to take immediately following a serious accident. Minor injuries can worsen if left unchecked. Truck crash injuries can have a significant impact on a victim’s life. They may require medical treatments, hospitalization, physical therapy or other rehabilitation, surgeries, prescription medication, and potentially home-care. Without being able to work and with medical bills piling up, an injured victim and their family may fall into hard financial and emotional times, which could compromise their recovery. In this situation, it is important that the victim speak with an experienced traffic accident lawyer.
