Common Auto Accident Injuries

Most people have been in at least one car accident, and most of us will be in at least one more at some time in the future. The good news is that most car accidents result only in property damage, and usually no one is hurt. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When a car accident is serious enough to hurt someone, there are all kinds of problems that can arise as a result. Some car accidents can even result in criminal charges. In these cases, you should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately to protect your rights..

COMMON AUTO ACCIDENT INJURIES Given the extreme force that is often exerted on the body when involved in a car accident, brain and spinal injuries are fairly common. These injuries are similar in several senses. Both the brain and the spinal cord are extremely delicate, and so both are extremely well protected. However, nature probably never envisioned the kind of force that can put on the head, neck, and back during a car crash.

Another thing that the brain and spinal cord have in common is that injuries to them are extremely serious, and are often accompanied by lifelong health problems. These health problems can result in astronomical medical bills, which may continue accumulating for many years. If these bills are ultimately caused by the reckless or negligent actions of someone else, you should speak with a dedicated auto accident attorney immediately to discuss your options.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a car accident, speak with an experienced car accident lawyer right away to discuss your rights. You may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, property damage, lost wages and more. Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, so that you can afford a lawyer even if you have limited income.

A Semi-Truck Hit And Damaged Overpass

A stretch of I-25 in downtown had to be closed for several hours after a semi-truck hit and damaged an overpass, according to 9 News. Despite signs more than a mile in advance of the overpass indicating overpass clearance heights and which lane commercial vehicles should drive in, a commercial truck in the wrong lane hit the overpass at Speer Blvd late in the morning. Pieces of concrete and metal rained down, damaging four other vehicles, and causing serious injury to one driver. The road was closed for about four hours, and the driver was cited for a misdemeanor criminal offense in connection with the crash.

Have you or a family member been hurt by the careless driving of a commercial truck driver? Speak with a dedicated  commercial vehicle accident attorney today.

While most commercial truck drivers are excellent, well-trained, cautious professionals, there are roughly 3,000 fatal commercial vehicle accidents annually in the United States according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Additionally, there are over 50,000 accidents involving injury, and tens of billions of dollars worth of damage done. Given the extreme size and weight of these vehicles, the potential for damage when a driver is careless, or just plain negligent, is very high. Victims of these accidents may find themselves in serious financial trouble, and in need of debt management assistance. When you are injured by this carelessness, you are entitled to financial compensation for your damages.

Contact a dedicated trucking accident attorney immediately to discuss your options if you or a loved one have been injured in a commercial vehicle accident. Recovering compensation from trucking companies is not always easy; most have insurance companies with experienced lawyers protecting the company’s bottom line. You need a personal injury attorney with a thorough understanding of personal injury law, and experience working with commercial trucking accident victims. Many commercial vehicle accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay a fee only after they successfully recover compensation for you.
