Types of Injuries Victims Often Sustain

There are many injuries that a victim of a trucking accident may face. While some injuries are mild, oftentimes they are severe or even permanent. Common injuries from a trucking accident include the following: 

Brain injuries: When a victim is hit by a semi-tractor trailer or big rig, the force of the impact can cause significant shaking of the head, leading to a brain injury. Brain injuries may be irreversible such as in some cases of concussions, but others can cause permanent damage or even death. Traumatic brain injury is one type of brain injury that can result in significant brain trauma, including motor function impairment, change in personality, behavior problems such as aggression, or impaired memory. Subdural hematoma is another serious type of brain injury that results in a build up of blood on the brain, leading to compression of brain tissue. This type of injury is one that needs to be dealt with immediately. 

Internal Injuries: Internal injuries are quite common when it comes to semi-tractor trailer injuries. Internal injuries can be caused by impact such as hitting a steering wheel or airbag, the car’s dashboard, or even from the victim’s seatbelt. Common sites of internal injuries include the liver, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, and bladder. 

Spinal cord injuries and back injuries: Spinal cord and back injuries are one of the most common types of injuries of victims injured in a semi-tractor trailer accident. Many of these injuries require surgery, physical therapy or both. Sometimes these injuries are completely irreversible, leading to an impaired quality of life, pain and loss of income if an individual can no longer perform their job. 

Paralysis is a common type of spinal cord injury that results in either partial loss of sensation or movement, or total loss. This type of injury can be particularly devastating for affected victims. Back injuries refer to any injury to the soft tissue or bone, often leading to severe pain. Disc herniation is also quite common in individuals who are injured in a trucking accident. Disc herniation often causes debilitating pain requiring surgery, physical therapy, or other treatments. 

Broken bones or fractures: Individuals injured in a semi-tractor trailer accident often suffer from broken bones or fractures. Common sites of broken bones or fractures include the legs, arms, hips, pelvis, wrists, ribs, or skull.
