This is the unfortunate reality for many of our residents and with this reality comes a range of possible injuries. If you are involved in a truck accident it is imperative that you contact a Lawrenceville truck accident attorney.

Common Truck Accident Injuries

Being involved in a truck accident can leave you with life-altering injuries that can take years to recover from if there is even a feasible recovery plan. Injuries can include:

  • Paralysis
  • Amputations
  • Open head wounds
  • Concussions
  • Internal bleeding
  • Internal organ damage
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries

There are many cases where victims of a truck accident do not survive and thus the family may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. You may sustain other minor injuries like broken bones and lacerations which can heal within a few months, unlike other injuries that can take years to heal from.

How do Truck Accidents Happen?

Truck drivers are often carrying heavy loads which can add to the weight of the truck. They are also often expected to work long hours and make deliveries within a short period of time. Considering these factors it is no wonder they will often be driving recklessly and endangering the lives of others as they do so. This does not excuse them in the case of an accident as the responsible party should be held accountable. Some causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigues
  • Distracted driving
  • Wide-angled turns
  • Tailgating
  • Dangerous lane-changes
  • Speeding
  • Improperly maintained trucks
  • Defective trucks
  • Bad brakes
  • Bad tires
  • Drunk driver
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Dangerous road conditions
  • Unsecure load
  • Reckless driving
  • Driver inattention

These are just a few causes of truck accidents and there are many other reasons you can get involved in an accident. There are also multiple parties that can be held liable for the accident. If the truck was not well-maintained then the trucking and maintenance company can carry some fault in the incident. Our Lawrenceville truck accident attorney will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the accident to determine the at-fault party.

Compensation for Truck Accidents

When you begin treatment for your injuries you may begin to wonder how everything will be paid for and how you will be able to move on with your life. The answer will come from hiring an experienced Lawrenceville truck accident attorney. We will work to seek compensation for the following:

  • Lost income
