Severe Truck Accident Injuries
Truck accidents reportedly cause more serious injuries than other types
of accidents. While additional circumstances, such as the number and type
of vehicles involved, location of the accident, and other factors can
contribute to the extent of the injuries, the sheer size and weight of
a truck versus a car, van, pickup, SUV or motorcycle, is enough to cause
In one recent truck accident, the driver of a dump truck sustained potentially
catastrophic injuries when he was ejected from the truck after one of
his tires blew up on Interstate 75. Another recent truck accident resulted
in the death of the truck's driver.
Apparently a single vehicle accident, this particular accident involved
a propane truck that had run off the road and overturned. In many truck
accidents, other factors such as improper maintenance, lack of legally
required truck driver daily log books,
defective products, and more may have contributed to the accident. Trucking companies and
the owners of company trucks could find themselves partially liable for
the accident and resultant injuries.
