Some people are lucky enough to walk away from a truck accident with only minor injuries. But too many aren't able to walk at all. That's the reality for some victims of back, neck and spine injuries, which are among the most serious truck accident injuries we see. These injuries can have massive implications for your life, preventing you from working or caring for loved ones for a long time. You need an experienced truck accident lawyer to fight for your rights.

The dangers of accidents involving commercial trucks
Any wreck can cause serious injuries, but truck accidents are especially dangerous because of the sheer force involved. Commercial vehicles are much larger than passenger cars, and that means people in the smaller vehicle are very vulnerable to severe injury. Some ways a truck accident can cause a back, neck or spinal cord injury include:
- Fragments of bone break and lodge into the spine
- The head and neck are forced sideways, causing the spine to contort
- Extreme acceleration and deceleration cause damage to disks in the neck and spine
- Compression fractures break the vertebrae and allow the spine to compress
- Significant bruising or tears to the spinal cord caused by the force of impact
The long-term implications of such an injury can be enormous. You may not be able to work for weeks, months or even years while recovering, or you may be permanently disabled. Sadly, many spinal cord injuries cause partial or complete paralysis. Alternatively, a back injury may leave you with chronic pain, and you may need to be on pain medication for life.
