Truck accidents are very dangerous as the vehicle itself poses a greater risk to its passenger and driver than perhaps an automobile or other motor vehicles. Due to the number of large trucks frequenting the freeways and roadways on a daily basis, the risk of an accident increases significantly. This causes increased danger and risk of injuries including paralysis, wrongful death, brain injuries, broken bones, amputation, and perhaps even burn injuries if the crash is significant and leads to a rollover or fire.
