There are three main classifications of truck types, light trucks, medium trucks and heavy trucks. While light trucks typically include pickup trucks and minivans, we will look at the medium and heavy trucks for the purpose of this website.
Medium truck types usually include box trucks, flatbed trucks and firetrucks, which can also be classified as heavy trucks. Heavy trucks may include garbage trucks, log carriers, concrete transport trucks, ballast tractors, dump trucks and semi-trailer trucks.

Serious Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents
Because of the size and impact of medium and heavy trucks, most collisions involving such large vehicles will result in serious injuries and wrongful death. Injuries can range from broken/crushed bones and lost limbs to spinal cord injuries and paralysis. No matter what type of injury you’ve sustained, it is important to speak with an experienced legal professional to find out if you qualify to seek compensation for any medical costs and long-term treatment expenses.
If your loved one was killed in a truck crash, you too may qualify to seek compensation for your losses. In addition to medical expenses, you may qualify to recover compensation to pay for lost economic and social support, funeral and burial expenses, and the emotional suffering your family will face.
