If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, contact Hazleton's Slusser Law Firm today.
There are few things more terrifying than an accident involving a truck or tractor-trailer. Thousands of pounds of steel travelling at high speed can tear through a passenger vehicle – and tear apart the lives of you and your family members.
According to recent statistics, almost 4,000 people died in large-truck crashes. An additional 9,155 people died in light-truck crashes, and light-truck crashes injured another 750,000 people.
Truck crashes are more likely to cause:
- Head trauma and serious brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
- Loss of a limb or limbs
- Permanent disfigurement
- Whiplash or back and neck pain
- Severe cuts and bruises
Truck accidents are also more likely to require extensive, expensive medical costs and rehabilitation. You are more likely to miss work for long periods of time, which mean you are less able to pay your bills and support your family. Just completing day-to-day activities may become difficult or impossible.
