The expensive aftermath of a commercial truck accident

Although fatalities have declined in recent years, commercial truck accidents still happen daily, often resulting in death or serious injury. One moment, you are driving somewhere in your car and the next, you’re dazed, hurting, and confused. When the other vehicle involved is much larger than your own, the potential for serious injuries is increased. While you can take steps to minimize your risk of an accident with a commercial truck, you can’t prevent mistakes or neglect of duty by those driving large trucks. If you suffered injury after a truck accident, you need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney.

Car accidents, broken bones, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

When you’ve been in a serious car accident, your injuries may take a while to heal. For a small number of people, physically healing may not be the end of their injuries. Those who suffer broken limbs or trauma to their extremities may develop Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). Even if you have received adequate medical attention, injuries to your limbs or extremities could cause ongoing symptoms well after the initial trauma heals. For those who develop CRPS/RSD, the best course of action involves retaining the services of an attorney.
