Common Semi Truck Accident Injuries
Due to the size and weight of large commercial vehicles as well as their occasionally hazardous cargo, semi truck accidents often result in severe personal injuries.
If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a collision that may have been caused by the negligent driver of an 18-wheeler, the Virginia Beach truck accident lawyers at Cooper Hurley may be able to help you pursue financial compensation for related medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.
Truck accidents can cause life-altering injuries including:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fractured bones
- Burn injuries
- Amputation injuries
All too often, truck accidents result in the wrongful death of innocent motor vehicle occupants.
Most truck accidents are preventable. Common causes of truck accidents include driver fatigue, overloaded trailers, driving under the influence of drugs, speeding to maintain unrealistic schedules and inadequate maintenance.
