Common Truck Accident Injury Types

Many truck drivers and passengers are at risk of suffering serious injury when involved in a motor vehicle accident. Here are some of the most common types of truck accident injuries one may suffer from:

  • Broken Bones
  • Whiplash

Most truck accident injuries are due to truck drivers' working conditions. Truck driver injuries are related to sedentary work, shift work, poor work hours, and fatigue. Sometimes truck drivers take risks for their trucking company and drive in unsafe conditions to meet deadlines. This is often caused by truck drivers being under immense pressure to meet deadlines for businesses and suppliers.

What You Can Claim For Truck Accidents

Your truck accident compensation may include four main claims. But the amount depends on the severity of your injuries, your earning capacity, your age, and whether any injuries are permanent. Here's what your truck accident compensation claim can include:

  • Medical bills and medical treatment.
  • In-home care and necessary rehabilitation.

Tips When Dealing With The Compensation Claim Process

1. Seek Medical Treatment as a priority

Your health and wellbeing is of primary importance. After any motor vehicle accident, you should seek medical treatment immediately, even if you do not feel you have been injured. Many injuries do take some time to become apparent, or may be undetectable to the untrained person.

2. Keep all Documents in a Safe Place

After seeking medical attention, and once under the care of a medical practitioner/s, collect any documents that you have received from any medical appointments, identification of the other driver, any notes you have taken and anything else of note, and keep them in a safe place, together.

3. Seek Legal Advice from a Trusted Source

The idea of having to deal with a legal claim, lawyers, and more in order to receive compensation that you may believe you are entitled to, on top of recovering from an injury can be overwhelming, but it need not be. Speaking to an experienced personal injury lawyer, can allay concerns that you may have about running a claim, answering any questions you may have, and letting you know your rights and entitlements so you can make an informed choice on your next steps.
