Truck drivers aren't always perfect

When a truck collides with a smaller vehicle, it is highly likely that the smaller vehicle will suffer the most damage and that the people inside that vehicle will suffer the worst injuries. This is simply due to the inherent nature of larger trucks. They carry more weight and thus maintain their momentum far easier than smaller vehicles. They also make a greater impact when they collide with any object.

As such, when trucks are involved in accident, the people who are hurt usually suffer terrible, catastrophic, or even fatal injuries. Traumatic brain injuries are common, as are permanent injuries to their spinal cord which could cause paralysis. The victims of a truck accident could also suffer a wide range of serious bodily injuries, such as broken bones, severe burns, and injuries bad enough that they require amputation.

So given the dangerous nature of trucks, and given their penchant for causing terrible injuries, it would be nice to think that every truck driver is safe and qualified. But that isn't always the case.

Truck drivers can be negligent and cause accidents. They may drive under the influence of alcohol, or drive without getting the necessary amount of sleep they need to safely operate their vehicle. The truck itself could be improperly loaded or maintained, making it more dangerous out on the road.

When victims are injured in a truck accident, a full investigation is imperative so that they may know if they were wronged by a negligent truck driver. At The Corry law Firm, we want to help those that have suffered immense pain and suffering due to a truck accident.
