Truck Accident Injuries

Pitted against the weight and power of a large commercial truck, a passenger vehicle offers little protection to its occupants. Truck accident injuries are often severe, and those who survive can see their lives changed forever. Those who are able to make a full recovery may spend months in the hospital followed by a lengthy period of rehabilitation. Examples of common truck accident injuries include:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury
  • Amputations
  • Crush injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Organ damage or loss
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Respiratory damage
  • Chemical burns
  • Toxic exposure
  • Coma
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia

Truck Accident Responsibility

Determining who can be held responsible for your truck accident injuries is not as straightforward as determining responsibility in an accident involving only passenger vehicles. We must conduct a thorough investigation which goes beyond the accident scene, and can involve going back months or years into the history of the trucking company and the truck driver, looking for trucking regulation violations and a pattern of negligence.

Depending on the underlying cause of your truck accident responsible parties may include one or more of the following:

  • Trucking company, also called common carrier
  • Truck driver
  • Truck manufacturer or seller
  • Parts manufacturer or seller
  • Other negligent driver
  • Freight shipper
  • Freight broker
  • Third party logistics provider (3PL)
  • Weigh station
  • Government entity responsible for design, construction, and/or maintenance of defective roadway
  • Third party contracted to repair and maintain the truck

If you have been injured in a truck accident you may be able to recover substantial compensation that will pay for your medical bills, future medical needs, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. However, you have a limited amount of time to take legal action or you can lose your right to sue. Please, do not wait until it is too late to learn more about your legal rights and potential compensation. Call our experienced Stamford truck accident attorneys at 1-855-850-1711 today.
