Commentary on Tractor-Trailer Accident on I-91 in North Haven

Commercial truck wrecks are pretty much always serious, but I can at least hope the reports saying there were only minor injuries are accurate. To be frank, those reports don't always have their facts straight. That's how you get situations like one I handled a while back where a "minor" injury turns into something far more serious.

In that case, a commercial vehicle crashed with a man's vehicle, causing some back pain. Doctors initially sent him home with little more than a prescription for some Ibuprofen and a heating pad. Days later, however, he could barely move due to the pain. Further tests showed that the crash ruptured a disk in his spine. What reports said were just minor injuries ended up being an injury that required surgery, months of recovery, and a lengthy back and forth to get the insurance company to take responsibility.

We got the man the help he needed, but it was far from the "minor" injuries reports made it seem to be. That's why taking wrecks like this seriously is always important. We can hope for the best while still preparing for the worst. That can be the difference between victims and families being left out in the wind and getting the help they deserve.
