The Triple A foundation for traffic safety reports in 2002 140,000 people were injured in accidents involving large trucks.  The impact that results from any auto accident is dangerous, but the shear force of impact that results from a large truck can take injuries to a whole new level.  When two automobiles collide the force of impact causes the body, in particular the spine, to move in positions that are unnatural and can cause severe and long lasting injuries.  Symptoms related to the back and neck can show up anywhere from immediately after the accident to months afterward.  When the force of impact is amplified to do the increased weight of the other vehicle like a large truck, injuries are significantly more serious.
