Common Causes of Houston Truck Accidents

Truck driver error and distraction are the most common causes of truck accidents. If a truck driver does not pay attention to the road in front of them they can rear end an unsuspecting driver causing serious injury. If a truck driver fails to yield the right-of-way to another driver and turns in front of them this can be a common cause of a truck accident.

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.

Typical Injuries

Wrongful Death

A 18-wheeler 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

A 18-wheeler truck accident can cause a disk in the back or neck to rupture. This is called a herniated disk. 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. 

Broken Bones and Fractures

Because of the force of a truck accident it can cause broken bones or fractures. Broken legs, feet and ankles can be caused by a truck accident when the energy of the accident travels through the vehicles into the foot,ankle or leg. A broken leg or knee cap can also be caused when the body strikes the dashboard in a truck accident. Broken sternum or rib can be caused by a truck accident through blunt force trauma to the chest. A good lawyer can get you financial compensation for these injuries.
