It is the nature of large commercial trucks, that when they crash, they cause tremendous damage. This includes damage to other vehicles, and even buildings, but worst of all, truck accidents cause severe and fatal injuries. It is very common for survivors of truck accidents to live with permanent disability, pain, and secondary health problems. If you have been injured in a truck accident, our truck accident attorneys can help.
Common truck accident injuries include:
Spinal cord injury
Broken bones and fractures
Soft tissue injuries
Exposure to toxic fumes
The Real Cost of Severe Injuries
The immediate costs of severe injuries are usually presented quite clearly in your medical bills, lost income, and other existing expenses. The long-term expenses are more elusive and difficult to determine. While your immediate costs can run in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars for medical care alone, the life-time cost of severe injuries can dwarf the cost of your initial care.
The long-term outcome of severe injury can be difficult to predict, as well. While we encourage you to hold out hope for a full recovery, we also know that permanent disability and the need for life-long medical care is a very real possibility with many types of injury. Our truck accident attorneys will help you get the compensation which can pay for your real long-term medical expenses.
Compensation for your truck accident injuries should pay for more than just the most basic care. It should give you access to the latest, most advanced treatments which give you the highest possibility of being restored to your pre-accident level of function, comfort, and health.
Your opponents, such as the trucking company and its insurance company, will try to underplay your medical needs. When you work with our truck accident attorneys, and have incurred severe injuries, your personal litigation team will include medical experts who help explain and prove to the court just how serious and expensive your injuries truly are.
