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 serious injuries.
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.
