Truck Accidents/18 Wheeler

Auto accidents of any kind can be exceptionally devastating. However, motor vehicle collisions that involve trucks or 18 wheelers are almost always serious and are often fatal due to the size, weight, and velocity of the truck. Injuries that are common in truck or 18 wheeler accidents include:

  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Limb amputation
  • Severe blood loss
  • Broken bones
  • Multiple fractures
  • Soft tissue lacerations
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved one have been involved in an 18 wheeler or truck accident, your world has likely been turned upside down.
