Truck Accidents in Coconut Grove

In the event of a truck accident, whether the injury is minor or severe, you should document the surrounding circumstances as best you can. If possible, snap a quick picture with your smartphone to document the scene of the accident and any other information that could help to support your case. If you are in too much pain, ask someone nearby to collect this evidence.

Of course, if you are in too much pain after an accident, you should focus on getting immediate medical attention. Your attorney can visit the scene of the accident and interview witnesses later, if needed.

Painful Truck Accident Injuries

When a truck is traveling at high speed and collides with another vehicle, damages can be intense. After a truck accident, our clients have suffered from a variety of injuries, large and small. For example, they might suffer:

  • Head injuries, such as concussions or other traumatic brain injuries.
  • Whiplash is one of the most frequent injuries we see. A few of the most common symptoms associated with whiplash include a headache, stiff neck, dizziness, and loss of balance. Additionally, many people black out immediately after suffering a traumatic blow to their head or body.
  • Back injuries, including sprains and strains, as well as damage to the ribs or vertebrae.
  • Spinal cord injuries that can lead to partial or complete loss of sensation or paralysis.
  • Internal organ injuries, including bleeding and blood clots.
  • Broken bones.
  • Cuts, abrasions, and lacerations, which should be cleaned thoroughly so that they do not become infected.
  • Burn injuries, which can damage both layers of skin as well as underlying bone, muscle, tissue, and nerves.

Each of these injuries requires prompt medical attention and should be taken seriously. When considering medical attention it is important to remember that no injury is too "minor," especially because complications can develop if you do not treat your injury properly. Follow your doctor's orders and contact your doctor if you do not feel that you are improving as expected.
