It is possible. Victims of semi accidents in Texas should always undergo a thorough physical exam to be sure they have not suffered serious internal damage. However, it can take days or even weeks for the symptoms of spinal cord injury to appear, so victims should be on the lookout for anything out of the ordinary.
A few common symptoms of spinal cord injury after an ABF Freight crash include:
- Severe or persistent headaches
- Pain in the neck, back or spine
- Muscle spasms
- Weakness in the arms or legs
- Balance problems
- Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
- Inability to feel pressure or temperature in the limbs
- Difficulty walking
- Breathing problems
- Inability to control bodily functions
- Difficulty performing sexually
Our ABF Freight accident attorneys know that these types of injuries are rarely minor setbacks. A truck accident back injury usually requires extensive treatment, including hospitalization, time off work and rehabilitative therapy—all of which puts significant financial strain on the victim and his family.
