What Injuries Could You Receive From a Semi-Truck Accident?
Posted by: albright on Fri, Jun 14, 2019Share this post
A fully loaded semi-trailer can be more than 70 feet long and weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. If it impacts a passenger vehicle at even a moderate speed, injuries to the driver and any passengers in that vehicle can range from severe to catastrophic. Here are some examples of those types of injuries:
- Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.
- Multiple fractures and dislocations.
- Third-degree burns.
- Organ damage.
- Spinal damage.
- Traumatic or surgically necessary amputations.
In the experience of our Las Vegas injury attorneys here at Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright, victims of severe or catastrophic injuries often incur staggering medical bills. With the inability to work, financial distress results, and an entire family can become emotionally despondent.
