Trucking Accident Injuries

According to the most recent statistics published by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), a division of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 74,000 people were injured as a result of serious trucking accidents in 2009. Because of the sheer size and weight of commercial trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and other big rigs, any collision between a commercial truck and a passenger car is more likely to result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries. And while truck drivers can and do sustain injuries in such accidents, the NHTSA reports that 76 percent of injured truck accident victims are occupants of other vehicles.

If you or a loved one — or loved ones — suffered catastrophic injuries due to truck driver error or corporate negligence, the experienced trial lawyers of Miller Weisbrod, LLP, can help you. Nationally recognized for our experience and record of results, we are dedicated to achieving maximum compensation on behalf of our clients.

Were you involved in a severe trucking accident? Time is of the essence, because many trucking companies immediately begin investigating truck accidents to minimize their own liability. To protect your right to full and fair compensation, contact our firm right away for a free consultation.

Common Injuries Sustained in a Truck Wreck

While any major car accident can result in serious injuries, rear-end collisions, underride accidents, sideswipes and T-bone collisions involving big rigs often do significantly more damage and result in debilitating or fatal injuries. Victims of trucking accidents are more likely to suffer:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Other severe head injuries, including decapitation
  • Spinal cord injuries resulting in temporary or permanent paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Severe burn injuries due to explosions or engine fires
  • Orthopedic injuries/multiple fractures
  • Wrongful death

Many of these injuries require expensive medical procedures and multiple surgeries to correct — if they can be corrected at all — and add financial stress to an already emotionally stressful situation. More often than not, however, these injuries result in permanent damage, leaving families with lifelong medical expenses and the realities of living with permanent disability or caring for a person with disabilities.

We seek to help you secure financial compensation for your immediate and long-term medical expenses, economic losses, property damage and the pain and suffering you and your family has endured. In certain cases, you may even be entitled to punitive damages for deliberate or willful misconduct by truck drivers or the company itself.
