Our Atlanta trucking accidents lawyers recognize that tractor-trailers are a vital part of the U.S. economy, routinely transporting goods throughout the country. Despite their utility, these monstrously sized vehicles are disproportionately responsible for the type of severe injuries that may permanently impact one’s quality of life and ability to earn a living or result in the tragic death of tractor-trailer accident victims. Despite accounting for a relatively small number of the total vehicles on our roadways, tractor-trailers are involved in a disproportionately high number of fatal collisions. If you are the occupant of a passenger vehicle involved in a collision with a big rig truck, the odds are against you as 97 percent of fatalities in trucking accidents involve occupants of the passenger vehicle.
If you are involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer, you may face extreme hardships because of the force of the impact involved in a typical Atlanta trucking accident. Many big rig trucking accident victims suffer serious injuries that result in long-term, even permanent pain. Some of the most severe injuries include traumatic brain and spinal injuries. The types of serious injuries often suffered in big rig accidents often have many life-altering consequences, such as:
- Inability to engage in one’s chosen occupation or work at all
- Permanent loss of ability to walk and control one’s body
- Impaired sensation or cognitive functioning
- Loss of feeling or use of one’s limbs
- Limitations on one’s normal life activities and marital relationship
