The Tragic Injuries Resulting From Logging Truck Accidents

LogTruck

Local 10 News recently reported that a driver made it out alive after he rear-ended a logging truck and his car was impaled by logs from the front windshield to the back window. Authorities have asserted that he apparently was leaning down to get something he had dropped when he ran into the log truck. Firefighters had to cut through 30 to 40 logs with chainsaws before they could even start to cut open the car and rescue the man. Because the driver was not in the upright position in his seat, his head ended up in a gap between the logs. Miraculously, the Georgia driver suffered only minor injuries.

Unfortunately, every victim of this kind of accident isn’t so lucky. Logging truck accidents can cause devastating injuries when something goes wrong. As the personal injury attorneys at The Pendas Law Firm, we understand  the injuries that can occur and we are here for the victims of these accidents.

  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Fractured skull
  • Amputations
  • Facial lacerations and disfigurement
  • Paralysis

Why Do I Need the Help of an Attorney After Being Injured? 

There are several requirements for transport on a logging truck, and while logging companies know this, this is also one of the biggest reasons that these companies often try to avoid responsibility. In these cases, liability will depend on a number of factors and it can be difficult to determine the responsible parties. Regardless of who they are, you should understand that the parties you are up against in these cases have substantial financial resources as well as teams of defense lawyers whose sole job is to defeat personal injury claims arising from logging truck accidents. It is easier and financially better for These companies and individuals if they try to deny and minimize their own liability while blaming the person who has suffered an injury as a result of a logging truck accident. The sooner you contact an attorney, the sooner you have the help of someone who is investigating your claim and helping you prove your assertions.
