Serious Injuries from Truck Crashes
Trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds fully loaded. The average passenger car weighs around 3,000 pounds. The disparity in size between the two vehicles means that there is a large amount of force involved in a crash. Chances are that the driver of the car and their passengers will suffer some form of serious injury. Truck accident injuries could include:
- Broken bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Organ damage
- Internal injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
The serious injuries involved in a truck crash mean that financial compensation in these accidents may be higher. In any new truck accident settlement, you are paid for the specific and unique damages that you suffer personally. Each truck accident victim has their own injuries depending on their own situation.
Truck accident cases can be harder fought because of the possibility of a large damages check. The insurance company does not want to write you a big check, so they will fight hard and try to delay your case. You have the legal right to file a lawsuit for full financial compensation.
If you have suffered serious injuries in a truck accident, you should never try to handle your case on your own. An experienced attorney would need to handle your case because they know how to value your damages. Your truck accident case may be worth far more than you think. If you have suffered serious injuries, you could be leaving a large amount of money on the table if you try to deal with the insurance company on your own.
