Common Injuries Sustained in Kentucky Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents are all too common on the roads of Kentucky, with some of them leading to severe injury or death. Trucks vary in size, which can be a major factor in the severity of the accident. Other factors include the weather, speed, distractions, road hazards and other drivers. Here are some of the common injuries sustained in Kentucky trucking accidents.

Head trauma is a common injury sustained in trucking accidents. The force of a collision with a truck can cause someone to slam their head against the dashboard, the steering wheel, the window or other items in the vehicle or truck.

Spinal injuries can be as minor as a bruised back to as major as permanent paralysis. Victims of trucking accidents can also suffer bruised nerves and a severed spine. Not all spinal cord injuries are apparent at the time of the incident. This is why the victim of an accident should seek medical attention even if nothing seems wrong immediately.

Broken bones are very common in trucking accidents. They can be as minor as needing a splint or cast to fix and as severe as needing surgery to repair. Broken bones can lead to lengthy physical therapy for the victim.

Internal organ damage is also possible in this type of accident. Damage to organs might not be noticeable at the time of the accident and can lead to death if not cared for immediately. The most common organs affected by this trauma are the liver, spleen, kidney, bladder, and pancreas.

Neck injuries can be devastating for victims of trucking accidents in Kentucky. A severe neck injury could prevent you from returning to work, could leave you permanently disabled and could limit your mobility even with physical therapy.

Lacerations are another common type of trucking accident injury. Cuts can occur from shattered glass and other broken parts in the vehicle.
