Head injuries.

Any trauma to the head carries a risk of brain damage. The effects of brain injuries can range from temporary vision problems and headaches to permanent cognitive difficulties, behavioral changes, and loss of motor function. Brain injuries can take weeks to fully show symptoms and can occur even if the victim did not lose consciousness.

Internal injuries.

Blunt trauma from a truck crash can fracture the ribs and damage vital organs, causing internal bleeding and potential rupture of the liver, kidneys, lungs, and spleen.

Back injuries.

Victims who suffer herniated discs may require spinal fusion surgery, permanently limiting the type of manual work they can perform. If the accident results in damage to the spinal cord, the victim may suffer partial or total paralysis that requires daily nursing care and severely impacts quality of life. 

Wrongful death.

Tractor-trailer accidents are often likely to be fatal. When a truck accident causes the death of a loved one, an experienced wrongful death attorney may be the family’s only chance of getting justice.
