There are as many types of truck crashes as there are trucks. From tanker trucks that often carry volatile loads to delivery trucks whose drivers are often hurrying from place to place, the specter of truck crashes takes a toll on the people who are involved.
Injuries Related to Truck Crashes
The severity and the type of injury varies according to the type of accident and the size and specifics of the truck. For instance, a coal truck can weigh over 10 times the weight of a passenger vehicle, and this is a factor in the severity of the injuries a coal truck can cause. A tanker truck can be hauling fuel and explosions, and fires are often common in this type of accident. Burn injuries occur and can be fatal.
Financial Loss Varies
The amount of loss an individual suffers depends on the type of truck crash. From broken bones to head injuries, the cost of care is high. Burns often require a long convalescence period and rehabilitation efforts.Unfortunately, victims are unable to work, sometimes for long periods, and the costs combined with the expense of medical care can become insurmountable.
