Common Truck Accident Injuries

Truck Accident Lawyers in MOAt any given moment, you can see large commercial tractor-trailer trucks hauling cargo on the interstates and highways in and around St. Louis. While these vehicles and their drivers are highly regulated, they are often involved in serious injury-causing accidents. Data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates accidents involving large trucks injured about 116,000 people during 2015.

Large commercial vehicles are capable of causing serious injuries when they are involved in collisions. Some of the most common injuries include the following:

Neck Injuries Strain on the neck due to sudden changes in acceleration can result in injuries like whiplash, which often causes long-term pain and complications. Medical treatment including physical therapy may be required to help with the pain.

Back Injuries Truck collisions can result in injuries to the back and shoulders, causing pain and making daily activities difficult.

Spine Injuries Spinal injuries can be some of the most serious. The nerves that run through the spinal cord allow the brain to communicate with the rest of the body. Spine injuries can result in tremendous pain and may require surgery to treat. Spinal damage can also lead to partial or total paralysis.

Head and Brain Injuries Trauma to the head can result in lacerations, disfigurement, and loss of senses. Blindness and hearing impairment can result from serious damage to the eyes or ears. Powerful impacts to the head can result in traumatic brain injuries that can cause permanent disability or impairment.

Loss of Limbs Truck accidents can create a great deal of twisted metal and other wreckage. This devastation can result in the loss of fingers, arms, and legs. Crush injuries and infections may lead to medical amputation, even if the initial injury does not sever a limb completely.

Internal Organ Damage The forces generated during a tractor trailer crash are often significant. These forces can cause internal injuries and damage to vital organs. Medical care should be immediate after a serious truck accident to determine if you have any internal injuries.
