Common Truck Accident Injuries

Because they are such massive vehicles, semi-trucks, big rigs, 18-wheelers, and other commercial trucks typically cause extensive damage when they collide with other vehicles and fixed objects on or alongside the road. All too often, truck accidents result in severe bodily injury and death. Tragically, occupants of smaller passenger vehicles are by far the most likely to sustain these life-altering and life-ending injuries.

Some of the most common truck accident injuries include:

  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Traumatic amputation
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe lacerations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Shoulder and knee injuries

These and other catastrophic injuries are not only immensely painful, but they are also often debilitating, leading to a lifetime of disability. Victims will require extensive medical care, ranging from emergency attention to ongoing surgeries and rehabilitation therapy to in-home care services. Such injuries will often also prevent victims from returning to work—either temporarily or permanently.

All of this can place victims and their families under serious financial strain. Keeping up with mounting medical bills can be challenging enough without the extra stress of lost wages, chronic pain, and immense emotional suffering.

Damages in Truck Accident Claims

As in other types of motor vehicle accident cases, including those involving car accidents and motorcycle crashes, victims of truck collisions may be entitled to financial compensation for their damages. In legal terms, “damages” are any economic or non-economic losses you have suffered as a result of the accident.

Depending on the specifics of your case, we may be able to help you recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Ambulance fees
  • Emergency room/hospital costs
  • Medical bills for all related treatment
  • Future/ongoing medical care costs
  • Lost income/wages and other benefits
  • Future lost income/wages and benefits
  • Reduced earning capacity (disability)
  • In-home care costs
  • Modifications to your home, vehicle, etc.
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc.
  • Counseling services

Additionally, if your loved one was killed in a truck accident, you could be entitled to recover damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Such damages may include medical costs associated with treating your loved one’s fatal injuries, funeral expenses, lost income, and loss of love, companionship, guidance, and support, among others.
