Common Injuries Sustained in Truck Accidents

In a truck accident, a person may sustain any of the following injuries: 

  • Broken bones. Broken bones, or fractures, are common in truck accidents due to the immense force involved in these collisions. They can range from simple breaks to complex, multiple fractures. 
  • Spinal injuries. Spinal injuries can result from the impact of a truck accident, causing damage to the vertebrae, spinal cord, or surrounding nerves. These injuries can lead to chronic pain, limited mobility, or even paralysis. 
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). When the head receives a powerful blow, the brain may shift inside the skull, resulting in a traumatic brain injury. This can range from minor concussions to severe brain damage. Warning signs may include blackouts, disorientation, migraines, or difficulty remembering things the way they used to be.
  • Whiplash. Whiplash, a condition caused by a sudden and forceful back-and-forth motion of the head, typically occurs in rear-end collisions. The symptoms of whiplash may include stiffness, headaches, and neck pain. It's important to consult a doctor to rule out more severe injuries, although whiplash typically heals on its own with rest and time.
  • Internal injuries. Truck accidents may cause internal injuries, such as damage to organs, internal bleeding, or collapsed lungs. These injuries can be life-threatening and may not show immediate symptoms. If you experience chest or abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, or dizziness after an accident, seek medical help right away.
  • Lacerations and contusions. Cuts (lacerations) and bruises (contusions) are common injuries sustained in truck accidents. While minor injuries can often be treated at home, deep cuts or large bruises may require medical attention to prevent infection or internal bleeding.
  • Psychological trauma. The emotional impact of a truck accident can be just as significant as physical injuries. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression are common psychological effects. It is important to seek professional help if you or someone you know is struggling emotionally after an accident.

Compensation in a Bentonville Truck Accident Claim

You could receive compensation for your economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Medical expenses. Compensation for medical expenses covers the cost of treatment for injuries sustained in the accident. This can include hospital bills, doctor visits, physical therapy, prescription medication, and any necessary medical equipment. The compensation should cover both past and future medical expenses related to the accident.
  • Lost wages. If you are unable to work due to your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. This includes any income you would have earned if you had not been injured, as well as any potential future earnings if you are unable to return to work or must change careers due to your injuries.
  • Pain and suffering. Pain and suffering compensation is meant to address the physical pain and emotional distress caused by the accident. This can include anxiety, depression, PTSD, and loss of enjoyment of life. The value of pain and suffering compensation can be difficult to calculate and often depends on the severity of the injuries and the impact they have on your daily life.
  • Property damageProperty damage compensation covers the cost of repairing or replacing damaged property, such as your vehicle. This also includes any personal belongings that were damaged in the accident.

Modified Comparative Negligence in Arkansas 

Comparative negligence is a legal concept used to determine fault and apportion damages in personal injury cases. In Arkansas, comparative negligence is governed by the modified comparative negligence rule. This rule holds that a plaintiff can still recover damages if their degree of fault is 49 percent or less. If it is found that the plaintiff was 50 percent or more at fault for an accident, they are barred from recovering any damages.
