Truck Accident Injuries and What They Mean To You
Today there are more trucks on the open roads and highways than ever before. As a result truck drivers as well as automobile drivers that come into contact with a truck during an accident often experience serious accident injuries that require immediate attention. For example, spinal injuries are one of the most common types of injuries that occur during a truck accident or automobile accident. Perhaps most alarming of all is when a small passenger vehicle is involved in an impact with a large commercial truck. This often results in catastrophic injuries.
Permanent as Well as Temporary Paralysis
Impact crashes that result from truck and car accidents are one of the leading causes of fractures, back injuries, neck injuries, crushes and compressions of the vertebrae as well as a wide range of other traumatic injuries. Along with broken bones, head injuries and lacerations and cuts, damage to the nerves in the spinal cord can be frequently encountered during a truck accident. In addition, permanent as well as temporary paralysis can have lasting impact on an individual’s life as a result of a crash. This combined with expensive medical bills and the necessity for lifelong treatment makes vehicular accidents some of the most catastrophic ever encountered.
A Little Bit of Prevention Can Go a Long Way
Those operating a passenger vehicle should always exercise extreme caution when driving near or around heavy-duty large commercial trucks. Whether on the interstate system or operating on small streets and roads, these heavy-duty trucks can cause extremely serious injury when an impact accident occurs. Always give these trucks a wide berth and avoid driving directly behind or next to these trucks whenever possible. A little bit of prevention can go a long way in reducing the chances of becoming involved in a collision with a truck.
