Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck driver error and distraction are the most common causes of truck accidents. Cell phone use, distracted driving, and speeding are common causes of truck accidents  

Another cause may be that the trucking company did not properly train the truck driver or failed to fire a bad truck driver before he hurt an innocent person.

Truck Accident Injuries

Wrongful Death

A truck accident can cause a wrongful death. Blunt force trauma to the chest can cause death by injuring the heart or aorta. Blunt force trauma to the brain can also cause death. 

Traumatic Brain Injury

A 18-wheeler truck accident can cause a traumatic brain injury by an object hitting the head thus penetrating the brain. A brain injury can also happen just through the force of the accident causing the brain to strike the hard part of the skull.

Spinal Cord Injury

A truck accident can cause a spinal cord injury if the spinal cord is damaged or severed in the truck accident. This can cause an innocent person to be paralyzed. The paralysis may result in paraplegia, quadriplegia or tetraplegia.

Herniated Disk

An 18-wheeler truck accident can cause a herniated disk in the back or neck. The ruptured disk can press on a nerve root causing pain, numbness and tingling. A herniated disk may require surgery to repair the disk and cut it away from pressing on the nerve.
