Truck Accidents can Cause a Wide Range of Injuries

Semi-trucks are a common sight on Georgia’s highways and interstates. While involved in less accidents per mile traveled than smaller passenger vehicles, big rigs are capable of causing significant injury and damage when collisions occur. Federal and state safety regulations affect almost every aspect of the industry, but the unfortunate reality is that even when followed accidents continue to happen. A semi-truck accident could result in significant medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life for the people involved. As a result, Georgia law allows people affected by these accidents to bring a claim in order to be compensated for these losses. Because of the complicated and industry-specific legal issues that often arise in truck accident cases, it is important for anyone considering bringing a claim to retain the services of an experienced Coweta County personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

 

Semi-truck accidents can occur in a wide variety of ways, and range from minor fender-benders to more serious multi-vehicle accidents. Similarly, the kinds of injuries that victims of tractor-trailer accidents can sustain are also varied and range from minor to serious. Some of the more common injuries that people sustain in semi-truck collisions include:

 

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Concussions
  • Contusions
  • Sprains
  • Bruising
  • Amputations
  • Spinal injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

 

These injuries can cause significant medical complications resulting in substantial economic and non-economic losses. As a result, anyone affected by a truck accident should be sure to have an experienced attorney evaluate his or her case.
