Understanding Truck Accident Laws

Truck accident laws vary by state and are governed by a combination of federal regulations and state statutes. In Pennsylvania, truck drivers and trucking companies must adhere to strict safety regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Violations of these regulations can result in serious accidents and liability for damages.

Types of Truck Accident Injuries

Truck accidents can result in severe injuries due to the size and weight disparity between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles. Common types of truck accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash: A neck injury caused by the sudden back-and-forth motion of the head, often resulting from rear-end collisions.
  • Fractures: Broken bones are common in truck accidents, particularly in high-impact collisions.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can result in partial or complete paralysis, affecting mobility and sensation.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Head injuries can cause cognitive impairments and other symptoms, impacting daily functioning.
  • Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma from a truck accident can cause internal bleeding, organ damage, and other serious injuries.
