A minor accident with a commercial truck may result in whiplash, bruises and small cuts. These common injuries are often not severe enough to warrant serious medical treatment, nor is there much risk of any long-term suffering. However, because truck accidents are often catastrophic and sometimes fatal, the financial and emotional impact may be worse.

Some of the serious types of injuries that can occur from a truck accident include: 
  • traumatic brain injury (TBI);
  • loss of limb;
  • internal bleeding;
  • severe burns; and
  • spinal cord injury. 
These injuries may cost you in several ways. The initial treatment for injuries like internal bleeding and burns may require several surgeries and weeks of recovery in the hospital. Once you’re stabilized, injuries like TBI or spinal cord injury can result in permanent disability. This may mean in-home medical care, assistive devices and ongoing therapy.

Even common injuries from truck accidents can create long-term complications if they are severe enough. It’s important to remember that you have the right to seek compensation for your damages if the negligence of a truck driver was the cause of your truck accident. An Atlanta personal injury attorney can help you file your claim against the driver and seek a fair settlement.
