Accidents and Injuries on I-40
Interstate 40 accidents stem from various causes, including driver negligence, poorly maintained roads, poor weather conditions, defective equipment, highway defects, and even acts of nature like rock-slides. Vehicular accidents on this highway, however, oftentimes involve speeding, head-on collisions, rear-end collisions, rollovers, jackknifing, sideswiping, and swerving.
With the massive amount of passenger vehicles, motorcycles and trucks that pass the I-40 on a daily basis, it is no surprise that road accidents occur here regularly, leading to serious injuries and even fatalities. Some of the more severe injuries sustained by accident victims are traumatic brain injuries, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, and loss of limbs.
