Common Truck Accident Injuries should not be taken lightly. Any accident between a passenger car and a large truck can be catastrophic. Semi-trucks dwarf cars, and the size discrepancy alone between vehicles is enough to create a horrific accident. Heavy-duty tractor-trailers can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds while the average car weighs around 4,000 pounds. But it’s also the cargo that big trucks carry that can lead to damage, injury, and even death.

• Traumatic Brain Injuries
You need not slam your head into any part of your vehicle to suffer a traumatic brain injury. The impact alone of a truck colliding with a passenger vehicle produces enough force to result in serious injury to the brain.

• Broken Bones
The blunt force trauma that is at play in a truck accident can easily lead to broken or completely shattered bones. A complete crushed bone or one that is broken into more than two pieces is common in truck accidents because of the massive force of impact.

• Burns
Burns are more commonly found in truck accidents than in collisions between passenger vehicles. There is a greater chance of a large truck’s fuel tank rupturing or causing a vehicle to catch on fire, which could lead to serious, disfiguring burns to the skin.

• Seatbelt and Airbag Injuries
The very items in your vehicle that are designed to protect you in case of a truck accident or car accident are actually the elements that could cause your injuries. Seatbelts are intended to confine your chest and abdomen, which could lead to broken ribs or crushed organs, so that the occupants of the car are not thrown around the inside of the vehicle or ejected from it.

• Amputation
In severe truck accidents, it is possible for limbs or extremities to be amputated in the collision. It is also possible that, because of being crushed or burned, arms, legs, hands, or feet may have to be amputated.
