New Jersey Brain Injuries From Truck Accidents Lawyer

Large truck accidents are on the rise in the United States, and that means more traumatic brain injuries (TBI) caused by accidents with large trucks. In 2016, large trucks injured more than 119,000 passengers and drivers on U.S. roadways. Another 3,986 lives were lost in accidents with large trucks, which is a 27 percent increase from a low of 2,223 fatalities in 2009.

Large trucks are particularly damaging when colliding with most other vehicles on the nation’s roadways. Tractor-trailers and large trucks weigh up to 30 times as much as the typical passenger car. They also have much higher profiles and greater road clearance. The combination of size, weight and height make collisions with large trucks and tractor-trailers particularly deadly and injurious.

Because large trucks have a significant size advantage over most passenger vehicles, it is the passengers in the cars and other smaller vehicles that suffer the most serious injuries. Injuries are often magnified, and TBI is a very real concern. When suffering a TBI injury, the effects can last an entire lifetime and result in total disability. Even when total disability does not arise, many victims experience ongoing problems that lead to lifelong medical treatments and their associated costs.

TBI injuries affect everyone differently, which makes it hard to determine the potential costs of any injuries suffered. The Rancho Los Amigos scale assesses TBI effects among eight levels. Those range from deep coma with no response, to stimuli at level 1, to returning to full function with some mental, social or emotional effects potentially lasting a lifetime.1

Trucking companies and other commercial carriers that use large trucks typically have insurance to protect against the costs of catastrophic injuries. Insurers, historically have used tactics to encourage those injured in these accidents to settle early and for much less than they should get in fair compensation. An experienced New Jersey truck accident attorney is an important asset when dealing with the legal aspects of getting maximum compensation for, potentially, a lifetime of suffering and related medical costs.
