Charleston Brain Injury From Truck Accidents Lawyer

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most dangerous and long-lasting effects of a truck accident. Victims often suffer serious and debilitating injuries that negatively affect their lives. The cost of treating such injuries is often very high, especially when accompanied by physical disabilities.

South Carolina has many large trucks driving on its roadways. Accidents with large trucks often result in serious injuries, including brain injuries, for those in vehicles that collide with large trucks. Trucks and other large vehicles weigh much more than typical passenger cars and have higher ground clearance. That is a recipe for disaster for most people who collide with large trucks. Not only are truck accidents costly, they also cause potentially serious head and brain injuries.

Traumatic brain injuries account for about 30 percent of all injury deaths in the United States, including more than 150 every day, the U.S Centers for Disease Control reports. For every person who dies from a head injury, five need hospitalization, and 25 obtain medical treatment. Traumatic brain injury often has long-lasting and costly effects, including:

  • Impaired memory or thinking;
  • Partial or total disability;
  • Total or partial loss of vision, hearing or other senses; and,
  • Emotional and cognitive changes, such as extreme personality changes and depression.

Unfortunately, South Carolina is one of the states where TBI injuries from accidents with trucks and other vehicles are more likely to occur. The state has many rural roads with narrow or non-existent shoulders, which add up to a lot of serious accidents. Across the nation, motor vehicle accidents are the third-leading cause of TBI injuries. They also are the leading cause of death among people from ages 5 to 24.

South Carolina ranks third in the nation in roadway fatalities, with more than 20 deaths for every 100,000 residents in 2016. That trails only Mississippi, with more than 23 deaths, and Alabama, with more than 21 deaths per 100,000 residents. The high rate of potentially deadly crashes in South Carolina makes its residents particularly vulnerable to large truck accidents and costly brain injuries that often require help from highly experienced personal injury attorneys.
