Types of Injuries You May Have Suffered in Your Truck Accident
The list of possible injuries from a truck accident would not fit on this page, but these are some of the injuries we see in truck crashes:
- Back injuries. You could experience a spinal cord injury, herniated disc, or back sprain from a truck collision.
- Whiplash: This is a neck injury that happens when the head gets snapped back and forth suddenly, according to the Mayo Clinic. The force in a truck accident can cause one of these injuries.
- Soft tissue injuries: Damage to muscles, nerves, ligaments, blood vessels, and tendons, are common after motor vehicle collisions. These injuries can be things like contusions (bruises), sprains, strains, tendonitis, and bursitis.
In our 17 years in practice, Dominguez Chiropractic has seen these and other truck accident injuries countless times. We can diagnose and treat your injuries to get you back on your feet.
The Types of Patient We See on a Regular Basis

Our practice also includes people who get hurt in any type of vehicle accident, including car, bus, bike, motorcycle, taxi, MARTA, Uber, Lyft, scooter, and all other vehicles. We can also help pedestrians who get injured by a vehicle.

Why You Should Call Us First
After getting hurt in a truck accident, you suddenly have a long to-do list. You need to get an evaluation of your injuries, get started on treatment, arrange for the repair of your vehicle, get transportation, and manage your insurance claim.
However, you do not have to do those things when you call Dominguez Chiropractic first. We can take care of so many things that you will call us your Sandy Springs One-Stop Truck Injury Center.
Here are some of the tasks we take care of for our patients:
- We perform a thorough evaluation of the person’s injuries and look for hidden injuries that have not yet exhibited symptoms.
- We craft an individual, holistic treatment plan based on your injuries, other medical conditions, and overall health.
- We can arrange for your vehicle to get towed and repaired.
- We can help with transportation issues.
- We can manage your insurance claim so that you can focus on getting better.
Additionally, we will document everything that we do to create the paper trail you will need when you pursue financial compensation from the person whose negligence hurt you. Our medical records will be evidence of how severe and extensive your injuries are. Our file will also link your injuries to the truck accident.
Sometimes, it is appropriate for a patient to have a lawyer handle the personal injury case or insurance claim. In these situations, we are happy to refer the patient to a lawyer.
You will find yourself wondering why so many people try to take care of all these things themselves when they are in pain and needing rest to get well. We care about our patients, and we want them to achieve their best life, which means making sure that all these tasks get done.

How Waiting to Call Us Could Hurt Your Injury Claim
Even a delay of a few days in getting treatment for your injuries could give the defendant an argument that you got hurt from something else, not the truck accident. The problem is that sometimes, injuries do not show symptoms for a few days. If you were in a truck accident, you should go right away for a professional examination to catch hidden injuries.
Generally, it is best to complete your medical treatment before you settle your claim for compensation against the at-fault driver. Until you reach your maximum medical improvement, you do not know whether you will have to live with lifelong impairment from your injuries. Maximum medical improvement is the point at which you have healed as much as you are going to—you are not going to get any better.
In Georgia, you only have two years from the date of the truck accident to file a lawsuit seeking money damages from the careless party, according to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §9-3-33. If you miss the deadline, you will lose the right to hold the person who hurt you accountable for your losses.
When you add up the time it could take for you to complete all of your injury treatment plus the time to negotiate with the insurance company, it could be close to two years when you realize that you will have to file a lawsuit to get the money you deserve. The clock is ticking on your deadline.
