According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 333,000 large trucks involved in traffic crashes in 2012. The majority of these semi-trailer truck accidents result from driver negligence.

Truck Accident Injuries

If you were involved in a truck accident, it is critical to track down those who are responsible for the accident because the injuries you sustain can be very serious.  Truck accidents frequently involve severe injuries, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Hip fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severed limb
  • Severe burns
  • Internal injuries

These injuries are serious and could involve extensive, long-term medical care.  An experienced truck accident lawyer can help you identify the party at fault and help you obtain the full and fair compensation that you are entitled to.
