Being in a trucking collision in Homestead or anywhere in southern Florida is devastating. Suffering severe injury on its own is enough of a problem, but for many patients secondary illness or injury can happen due to the injuries they sustained in a trucking collision.
Secondary illness and injury can occur as a complication of an initial injury. For example, someone who has suffered a severe injury which requires them to use a wheelchair may develop secondary infections, pneumonia, and other complications because they are immobilized in a wheelchair. Someone who has suffered a back injury may sustain a secondary injury or illness if they fall down due to their back injury and re-injure themselves. Head trauma patients may also be more prone to dizziness and may fall down again, which can be devastating since secondary traumatic brain injury can be more dangerous than the first.
