Injuries in 18-Wheeler Accidents

collision with an 18-wheeler, due to its size, weight, and center of gravity.
The most common injuries include broken bones, amputations, herniated
disks, paralysis, spinal cord injuries, back injuries, brain damage, bone
fractures, and catastrophic injury. Any injuries which are permanent and

of your accident and to pursue compensation with the liable party's
