Common Injuries Sustained in Semi-Truck Accidents

Trucking accidents occur on a regular basis, and often can result in serious injury to the people involved. The massive size and weight of commercial trucks make them particularly dangerous to other motorists, often resulting in more damage to the smaller vehicles involved. As a result, the trucking industry is highly regulated by state and federal law. In addition to these regulations, state law also allows victims of accidents to recover through a personal injury lawsuit. Truck accident cases can often bring up extremely complicated legal and technical issues, making it particularly important for victims to retain the services of an experienced Gwinnett truck accident attorney as soon as possible. The attorneys of Shane Smith Law are dedicated personal injury advocates who work hard to get our clients the compensation they deserve.

No two semi-truck accidents are alike, and they can cause a wide variety of injuries. The injuries that people can sustain in truck accidents can range from minor cuts and scrapes to more serious injuries that could require ongoing medical care.  Some of the more common injuries that people sustain in commercial truck accidents include:

  • Fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Burns
  • Chemical burns
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal injuries
  • Amputations
  • Sprains
  • Lacerations

These are just some of the types of injuries that people can sustain in truck accidents, and it is important for anyone involved in a truck accident to undergo a full medical evaluation as soon as possible. Seeing a medical professional will ensure that your injuries are properly diagnosed and treated, as well as creating an official record of your injuries, often making it easier to establish damages.
