What Is A Serious Truck Accident?

October 02, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
ROCHESTER, N.Y. The truck accident attorneys at Cellino & Barnes are warning all motorists of the injuries associated with large truck crashes.

Truck accidents are some of the most violent collisions on American roadways today, and they're on the rise. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, trucking fatalities have spiked 16% since 2011.

Ultimately, truck accidents are responsible for some of the most catastrophic injuries, and victims of truck crashes may have difficulty recovering fair compensation for their injuries, if they do not take immediate actions.

Signs That A Truck Accident Caused Serious Injury

Truck accidents involve very heavy vehicles, often weighing over 35,000 pounds. Due to the weight of these trucks, those involved in truck crashes can suffer "serious injuries," including:

  • Dismemberment
  • Significant disfigurement
  • Loss of a fetus
  • Fracture
  • Loss of a bodily function or organ
  • Brain damage
  • A non-permanent injury or impairment that prevents the victim from conducting his daily tasks for no fewer than 90 days over the course of 180 days immediately following the accident

  • Even if you believe you have not suffered a serious injury after a truck crash, it's important to pay attention to your symptoms, as any of these may be a sign of a much larger injury:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Tingling sensations
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Numbness or weakness in certain areas
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue

  • Don't ignore your symptoms. Seek immediate medical attention, then contact a serious truck accident lawyer in Rochester with years of experience protecting the best interests of their clients.
