Truck injuries can be quite catastrophic due to the immense weight of trucks and any products they may have in their bed. Some of the possible injuries from being crushed by a truck include spinal cord injuries, head injuries, brain injuries, amputation, lacerations, eye injuries, concussions, muscle strains, ligament sprains, broken bones, loss of limbs, and wrongful death.
