Tyler, TX (11/16/2020) – A woman suffered injuries after a fatal crash occurred involving a semi-truck in Smith County.
The accident occurred on Interstate 20 when Jessica Mckinley’s vehicle went underneath a moving 18-wheeler.
Mckinley was taken to the hospital, where she suffered whiplash injuries.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led to the accident, and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
One of the most common types of injuries that people sustain in a car crash is Whiplash Associated Disorder (WAD). Commonly referred to simply as whiplash, WAD is more than just a temporary pain. Whiplash can result in long-lasting problems that affect your ability to work and live life as you did before the accident.
The damage is only exacerbated when the whiplash is not identified early and when those affected do not receive the compensation necessary to help in recovery. If you’re struggling with symptoms related to a whiplash injury we advise you to speak with a qualified car accident lawyer about your options for compensation. A lawyer will help protect your rights and give you honest advice as to whether you may be able to get compensation for your whiplash injuries.
