Pedestrians can find their life forever changed by a motor vehicle accident. The injuries pedestrians can suffer in traffic crashes can be incredibly severe in nature. Paralysis, limb losses, severe brain injuries and extensive internal injuries are some examples of the damage that auto accidents can do to pedestrians.
A wide variety of things can occur when a person is involved in a physical accident (such as a car accident or a slip-and-fall accident). One is that a person may end up striking their head against an object or surface.
In our discussion last post, we mentioned that truck accidents sometimes lead to spine injuries. Such injuries, however, are not exclusive to truck crashes; they can occur in all manner of different accidents.
It can take only seconds for an 18-wheeler accident to occur. A glitch in any one of a truck's many mechanical systems or a moment of inattentiveness, carelessness or extreme sleepiness from a truck driver can lead to a truck careening into other vehicles.
