Truck Accidents in Oklahoma
Truck accidents tend to be some of the most severe types of collisions that we see here in Oklahoma. People who are involved in these accidents are often left with significant injuries. Some of the most common injuries reported in truck accidents include:
- Neck and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Burn injuries

Any type of injury from a truck accident can leave you with overwhelming pain and suffering. Unfortunately, there are many types of truck accidents that we see take place here in Oklahoma that leave people with these and other debilitating injuries.
One of the most common types of accidents is rear-end collisions. This is usually due to the truck following too closely behind another vehicle or not paying attention to the traffic ahead.
Other common types of accidents include sideswipe collisions, which occur when the truck drifts into another lane and hits a vehicle next to it; rollovers, which happen when the truck overturns; and jackknifes, which occur when the trailer swings around and hits the cab of the truck. These accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, such as speeding, Distracted Driving, impaired driving, or dangerous road conditions.
