According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Administration, the average year sees approximately 80,000 people injured in various types of truck accidents across the nation. While some of these injuries may be relatively minor, even those which do not require immediate hospitalization will often be life-changing. For example, a truck accident victim may suffer from the common soft tissue injury known colloquially as "whiplash" which will often leave the individual with chronic pain, stiffness and loss of range of motion.
While some people are able to drive away from a truck accident having suffered injuries no greater than minor bruises, others are not so fortunate. Semi-trucks can legally weigh as much as 80,000 pounds-approximately 40 times more than a normal passenger vehicle-and they can therefore cause devastating injuries in an accident. Catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injury, crushed or mangled limbs and paralyzing spinal cord injuries are common, as the driver or passenger in the smaller vehicle is subjected to the violent force of impact with the truck.
The injuries suffered in truck accidents will frequently force the accident victim out of work for an extended period while he or she recuperates, and in other cases the individual may have been left with a permanent partial or total disability which makes it impossible to support the family or fully enjoy life. To make matters worse, a truck accident injury will commonly require extensive emergency medical treatment, hospitalization and perhaps surgery, as well as ongoing rehabilitative care.
