The Consequences of a Concrete Truck Accident
A concrete truck is a formidable vehicle to encounter on a busy roadway. In addition to the size, the truck’s weight is also impressive, especially when carrying a load.
When operated by a careless driver, an out-of-control concrete truck can cause severe injuries and possible death to occupants of smaller vehicles and to pedestrians.
The following list is just a few examples of the types of injuries possible in such an accident:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Organ damages
- Cuts, scrapes, or bruises
- Muscle or ligament damage
Depending on the severity of your accident, you or a loved one may require a lifetime of care with certain types of car accident injuries.
If you have not already done so, make sure to see a doctor for a thorough evaluation of your injuries. This can create evidence in your medical record that your injuries came from the accident and not some other cause.
