Injuries and Damages from a Truck Accident

Driving around big rigs, especially on narrow roads and at high speeds, can be scary and dangerous. If a large truck collision occurs, the outcome can be nothing short of catastrophic for those involved, particularly the occupants of the smaller vehicle. Types of injuries that a victim of a truck accident may sustain include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries. The brain is one of the body’s most important, and most fragile, organs. While the brain is protected by the thick skull, in a truck crash, the skull could be penetrated, the head could be hit with a blunt object, or the brain could even slam into the skull wall as a result of whiplash. Traumatic brain injuries can cause lasting, irreversible damage to cognition, thinking, sensation, memory, and emotion.
  • Crush injuries. Large trucks are up to 20 times heavier than standard passenger cars, which means that when the two vehicles collide, the smaller vehicle may be completely destroyed. For those within the smaller vehicle, crush injuries are a possibility. Crush injuries happen when a part of the body, usually a hand, foot, arm, or leg, is crushed between objects as a result of force. This can result in permanent disability, or amputation in some cases.
  • Spinal cord injuries. Like the brain, the spinal cord is one of the most important parts of the body, as well as one of the most delicate. While the spinal cord is protected by the spinal column, if enough force is applied, the spinal cord could be damaged. Because the spinal cord is responsible for relaying messages between the brain and the rest of the body, if the spinal cord is damaged, the process is disrupted and the result can be permanent partial or complete paralysis from the site of the injury downwards.

Internal injuries, bone fractures, soft tissue injuries, and more are all other possible injury types. Injuries may lead to severe bleeding, as well as damage that is too great to repair. Psychological injuries that result from injuries and the trauma of the crash are also very likely. Injuries can be permanently disabling, expensive to treat, painful, and fatal in the most severe of cases.

Why You Need a Santa Fe Truck Accident Lawyer

If you have been in a Santa Fe truck accident and are dealing with any of the injuries listed above, or others, working with an experienced Sante Fe truck accident lawyer may improve the outcome of your case. The above injuries can result in hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of dollars’ worth of losses in the form of medical expenses, lost wages, property damage costs, and pain, suffering, and emotional distress. While you deserve to be compensated for every penny you have lost, an insurance adjuster will be hesitant to pay out your claim in full; they are more interested in saving the insurance company money. When you have an attorney on your side, your attorney can determine who caused the accident and who should be held liable, handle your claim documents, determine what a fair settlement looks like, and negotiate that settlement on your behalf. An attorney can also prepare your case for litigation if settlement negotiations fail.
