In fact, crashes involving trucks result in 5,000 fatal injuries and more than 125,000 injuries each year. If you’re a truck accident victim, Eric Stovall can get you the compensation you deserve.
Injuries That Occur from Truck Accidents
Trucks transport goods such as food, clothing and toxic liquids from manufacturers to different portions of the United States. The sheer number of trucks on the road presents many problems for car drivers. Victims of truck accidents suffer various injuries including concussions, comas, broken bones, brain and spinal cord injuries, fractures and severed limbs. These personal injuries can cost a victim thousands of dollars in medical bills and expenses. However, truck accident victims can recover compensation for medical and hospital bills as well as pain and suffering and property damages.
What Causes Truck Accidents
There are many reasons a truck accident might occur. For instance, when truck drivers make wide right hand turns, some people inadvertently drive beside the truck. Consequently, after the truck straightens out from the turn, it may trap the car underneath it. Other causes include:
- Unsafe crossing
- Driving in the blind spot of a truck
- Failure to permit a truck to merge
- Crossing lanes in front of other trucks
- Driving across the median into oncoming traffic
