All motor vehicle accidents have the potential to be fatal or cause life-changing injuries. For obvious reasons, accidents involving large commercial trucks often cause particularly devastating damage and injury to victims. Many truck accident injuries requires extensive medical treatment, including emergency care, surgery, extended hospital stays, numerous doctor appointments, and months of physical therapy and rehabilitation. As they face their long road to recovery, victims are often able to recover for their losses from the truck driver or company responsible for the accident. An experienced truck accident attorney in Coweta County can help you do just that.
Some of the most common injuries that result for commercial truck accidents include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries, causing physical, emotional, and cognitive difficulties
- Spinal cord injuries, causing potential full or partial paralysis
- Crushed limbs, possibly requiring amputation
- Shattered or broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Severe burns
- Other permanent disfigurement
- Lacerations and contusions
Amputations, paralysis, loss of sensation, traumatic brain injuries, and other permanent disabilities can completely change the quality of a person’s life as they previously knew it. Victims may never be able to return to work or live independently following an accident. They may experience significant and long-lasting pain and suffering and may no longer be able to enjoy many things in life, such as leisure activities. Such victims and their families deserve to be fully and justly compensated by any negligent parties whose actions may have contributed to the accident.
