Big Rig Accidents Often Lead to Back and Neck Injuries
When truck accidents occur, they involve a lot of force. This is often absorbed a person’s back and neck. This can result in whiplash, which contrary to what many people think is a serious and potentially disabling neck injury. Other injuries can include torn ligaments and nerve damage. In the worst-case scenario, spinal cord injuries can occur, which can result in lifelong paralysis.
Head Injuries Are Common in Big Rig Accidents
Seatbelts and airbags are designed to help protect people’s heads on their own and to work together to add more protection. Unfortunately, they are not 100% effective. This is especially true when it involves a large truck colliding with a smaller vehicle. Head injuries can occur when the head hits an object within the vehicle (or is hit with an object within the vehicle) or when the brain hits the side of the skull on impact.
Internal Injuries Are Common in Big Rig Accidents
It is often the case that the most serious of injuries cannot be seen with the naked eye. They may not be obvious at all. We are talking about internal injuries such as damage to internal organs that occurs during blunt force trauma, or when the body is moved around the inside of the vehicle. Internal injuries are often not discovered until it is too late to do something – which is one of the reasons we always recommend our clients see the doctor as soon as possible after an accident.
