Commentary on Ursula Hill Accident on Military Dr in San Antonio
It's at least a relief to see that the injuries after this crash are said to be minor. Not everyone involved in a collision with a commercial truck can say the same. However, it's still important to take wrecks like this seriously. I have seen more than a few instances where injuries thought at first to be "minor" turned out to be anything but.
I handled an accident not too long ago, for example, where a driver reportedly had a sore back after a crash with an 18-wheeler. The hospital sent him home with instructions for bed rest and ibuprofen, but days later the pain was almost paralyzing. Further tests revealed that "minor" injury was actually a ruptured disk in his spine; it required surgery and extensive rehabilitation, all while the trucking company and its insurer tried their hardest not to admit fault or help with his recovery. We got him the help he needed and deserved, but altogether his experience proved far from "minor."
I'm not saying anything like that happened or will happen with respect to the San Antonio crash. I certainly hope no one has to go through what our client did. That said, getting him the help he needed happened in part due to being thorough and taking the crash seriously even when things didn't seem so bad at first. As they say, "better safe than sorry." A commercial vehicle wreck is certainly no exception.
