Did You Break A Bone In A Truck Accident?
Our law firm knows how to help you recover
If you've been in a truck accident, you know firsthand just how much force is involved. When a commercial truck slams into a passenger car or motorcycle, the people in the smaller vehicle take the brunt of the impact, and often, that's enough to break bones. Those injuries can be truly catastrophic, with a massive long-term impact on your life.
Fractures are some of the most serious truck accident injuries we handle at our Atlanta law firm. You need to take your case seriously. Reach out to an experienced truck accident lawyer at Gary Martin Hays & Associates, P.C.
How truck accidents lead to fractures
Any wreck can cause a broken bone, but truck accidents, because of the great amount of force involved, can cause particularly severe breaks. Many fractures sustained in truck accidents are called comminuted fractures, which means the bone is broken into more than two pieces or completely crushed. Also common are compound fractures, which are injuries in which a broken bone actually pierces the skin, creating the risk of infection or other complications. These fractures can take many months to heal and some can even cause permanent disability.
Some of the most serious injuries in truck accidents involve fractures to the biggest load-bearing bones in the body - arms, legs, hips and so on. But even a seemingly minor injury such as a broken finger can have significant implications for your life. You may be out of work for weeks or months while your injury heals, and your ability to care for children or complete tasks around the home may also be reduced. Those are real losses that demand full and fair compensation.
When children are involved in truck accidents, the long-term implications can be even more severe. Children, because their bones are more flexible, often sustain bowing fractures - injuries in which the force of the crash bends or strains the bone but does not actually break it. These and other types of fractures may heal improperly, which may require extensive and painful medical treatment that may involve re-breaking bones.
