New Jersey Spinal Cord Injury from Truck Accident Lawyer

A spinal cord injury from a truck accident is one of the most devastating injuries anyone could suffer. Accidents with large trucks and other vehicles account for about 39 percent of spinal cord injuries, and can tally $500,000 in costs during the first year following an accident. Such injuries cause lifelong consequences for those injured in truck accidents, and often include high medical costs. The leading cause of spinal cord injuries are related to vehicular accidents. Serious spinal cord injuries can result in:

  • paralysis
  • paraplegia
  • quadriplegia
  • loss of bowel function
  • difficulty with balance and walking

Spinal cord injuries can also cause people to lose their jobs and force career changes. Many spinal cord injuries cause partial or total disabilities that radically change lives. The injured party may have to learn new job skills, change their career entirely or depend on compensation from insurers and others sources to pay the lifelong costs of a spinal cord injury.

Large trucks and tractor-trailers weigh up to 30 times more than a standard passenger car. They also have much taller profiles and high ground clearances. Those are often important factors when passenger cars collide with large trucks. The weight and momentum from the two vehicles can create devastating injuries that cause fatalities or permanently injure those involved, especially the passengers in a much smaller vehicle.

Speeding is the top cause of most vehicular accidents. When it comes to large trucks, though, drivers cutting off trucks or otherwise violating traffic laws are the primary causes of accidents. Given the size and weight of large trucks, one vehicle causing an accident can lead to multiple vehicles sustaining damage, with many people sustaining serious injuries or death.

Approximately 120,000 people suffer injuries every year due to accidents with large trucks. Many of these, sadly, include spinal cord injuries with their related costs and medical problems that can last a lifetime. Initial injuries require an average 15 days of hospitalization, followed by 44 days of outpatient treatment. That equates to large medical bills during the first year alone.

An experienced New Jersey spinal cord injury attorney can help protect your rights and hold the responsible party liable.
