Omaha Truck Accident Bone Injury Attorneys

Legal Representation for Victims of Truck Accident Bone Injuries

They travel along the I-80, the I-480, the U.S. 75 and other major roads and highways throughout Omaha and the rest of Nebraska, carrying various different types of cargo. They are called commercial trucks, big rigs, semi trucks, tractor trailers, or 18-wheelers, and they are still the largest, heaviest, and most dangerous vehicles that travel on Nebraska's roads and highways. A large truck is not just another car. It requires specific skills to operate, which is why truck drivers must hold a Commercial Driver's License (CDL). If these trucks are not operated correctly, they can result in devastating accidents and serious injuries.

Being injured in a trucking collision can completely change your life, but you can protect yourself and your future by filing a personal injury claim against the truck driver or trucking company that caused the crash. The experienced Omaha truck accident bone injury attorneys at Cullan & Cullan LLC, can look at the details of your accident and help you understand your legal options. To find out more, call us for a free consultation at (402) 882-7080.

Greater Responsibility

The drivers of tractor trailers have a greater responsibility for the safety of other motorists because the trucks they drive can crush a smaller vehicle and seriously injure its occupants. If truck drivers, trucking companies, or even truck manufacturers are negligent in their duty, then they may be held accountable for the injuries their negligence caused. One of the most common injuries in truck accident claims in Nebraska is bone fractures.

Consequences of Bone Fracture Injuries

The force of impact from a tractor-trailer crashing into a regular passenger vehicle can bend and crush the metal chassis that would usually protect vehicle occupants under other accident conditions with smaller vehicles. As a result, passenger vehicle occupants may be pinned, crushed, and/or thrown against windshields, doors, dashboards, and other areas of the car. Bone fractures are a common result of such trauma.

Skull fractures, limb fractures, rib fractures, and vertebral fractures are all common injuries after a collision with a commercial truck. Unfortunately, the victim of a truck accident could easily suffer multiple bone fractures and even crushed bones.

Bone fracture injuries may require surgery and other medical treatment, after which the victim may require weeks, months, or even years of rehabilitation. The fractures may be so severe that, even after healing is complete, the victim will suffer lifelong physical impairment or disability. Not only can such a condition require ongoing medical care and expenses, but it may prevent the victim from doing the job they did before they were injured. As an innocent victim of another's negligence, the financial hardship that would arise from such circumstances is undeserved and unacceptable.
