With most semi trucks weighing over 80,000 pounds, it is not hard to see why those that are lucky enough to make it out of an accident alive, often sustain serious personal injuries. Damage to the brain and spinal cord are not uncommon and can take years of rehabilitative treatment, while other injuries like paralysis, involuntary amputation, spinal injuries and broken bones are also very common.
In fact, a 10-year study from 1998-2008 has stated that there were approximately 7,100 truck accidents on Alabama roads during that time, with 132 fatalities resulting from those crashes. Unfortunately, over 25% of those deaths occurred on our interstate roads.

Admittedly, while there can be many factors that contribute to a truck collision that causes serious personal injury, history has shown that there are common factors that seem to be prevailent in many incidents year after year.
Some of these include (but are not limited to):
.... just to name a few.
It must be noted that many of these factors are often compounded when a driver is under pressure to deliver cargo within a very slim delivery time, which forces drivers to "cut corners" wherever possible in order to save time.
In those types of situations where a collision occurs, the owner of the truck and the trucking company can also be liable for any damages that a victim may receive.
After most collisions, the insurance provider from the "at-fault" party will usually send out an assessor to view the crash scene and try to access the damage to both the vehicles and property involved, and also to any people that have been injured.
