Truck Accidents

Personal Injury

If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident, it’s crucial to understand the potential consequences and take the necessary steps to protect your rights and well-being. Truck accidents can result in severe injuries due to the size and weight disparity between trucks and other vehicles on the road.

Facts and Statistics

Truck accidents can have a significant impact on individuals and communities. According to recent statistics, truck accidents account for a substantial number of fatalities and injuries on our roads. Here are some key statistics to be aware of:


In the United States, truck accidents contribute to a significant portion of traffic-related fatalities. It is estimated that around 4,000 people lose their lives each yearin accidents involving large trucks.


Due to trucks’ sheer size and weight, property damage resulting from a truck accident can be extensive and costly. Vehicles involved in such accidents often suffer significant harm, leading to financial burdens for those affected.


According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, “Forty-eight percent of deaths in large truck crashes in 2021 occurred on major roads other than interstates and freeways, 36 percent occurred on interstates and freeways, and 16 percent occurred on minor roads”.

    Most Common Injuries

    Truck accidents can cause a range of injuries, varying in severity depending on the circumstances of the collision. Some of the most common injuries resulting from truck accidents include:

    Whiplash: It occurs when the head and neck experience a sudden and forceful back-and-forth movement. It is a common injury in rear-end collisions involving trucks, leading to neck pain, headaches, and stiffness.

    Spinal injuries:The impact of a truck accident can cause spinal cord injuries, which may result in partial or complete paralysis. These injuries significantly impact an individual’s mobility and quality of life.

    Traumatic brain injuries (TBI):A TBI can occur when the head strikes an object during a truck accident. It can result in cognitive impairments, memory loss, and changes in behavior or personality.

    Fractures:The force of impact in a truck accident can lead to bone fractures in various body parts. Fractures may require extensive medical treatment, including surgeries and rehabilitation.

    How to Proceed When Involved or Hurt in a Truck Accident

    Being involved or injured in a truck accident can be a traumatic and overwhelming experience. However, it’s essential to take specific actions to protect yourself legally and physically:

    Seek medical attention:

    Your health and well-being should be the top priority. Even if you initially feel fine, it’s crucial to undergo a thorough medical evaluation to identify hidden injuries that may have delayed symptoms.

    Contact authorities:

    Immediately report the truck accident to the police and provide them with accurate and detailed information about the incident. This will help create an official record of the accident.

    Gather evidence:

    If possible, gather evidence from the accident scene, such as photographs of the vehicles involved, the road conditions, and visible injuries. Collect contact information from witnesses who can provide statements about the accident.

    Identify witnesses:

    If there were witnesses to the accident, try to obtain their contact information. Witness statements can provide valuable evidence and support your version of events.
