Truck accidents happen frequently in Texas and throughout the United States. Due to the sheer size and volume of these vehicles, truck accidents often result in devastating consequences, from whiplash and other neck injuries to far more serious problems. In many cases, the injuries don’t show up immediately, but this doesn’t mean they won’t end up causing chronic problems. This is why it is crucial for you to seek medical attention immediately following an auto accident.
Slip and fall accidents are among the most common causes of injuries throughout the year. While many people associate slip and fall accidents strictly with the winter months, this is not the case. They can be caused by anything – from slick and slippery surfaces to hazardous sidewalks and steps. People who suffer slip and fall injuries can experience trauma to many different parts of the body, including the bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments. Depending on the severity of these injuries, the results can be catastrophic and have a lasting impact on the victim’s overall quality of life.
People are injured every single day in a wide range of accidents, including pedestrian accidents. Cars, motorcycles, and trucks can cause serious injury to pedestrians, resulting in weeks, months, and even years of recovery. Individuals who have been injured in a pedestrian accident should seek medical attention right away. Chiropractic care is becoming an increasingly common form of healthcare that many people are seeking out. Individuals who have suffered a severe or moderate injury as a pedestrian may benefit from the techniques and modalities found within chiropractic care. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents happen at an alarming rate. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 5,500 pedestrians die in traffic accidents every year and an additional 129,000 are treated for non-fatal injuries.
Bicycle accidents have become increasingly common, especially throughout many cities in Texas. Biking is popular, both as a means of travel and for recreational purposes.

At Premier Injury Clinics of DFW, we see many different types of injuries related to cycling. Some of the most common injuries include neck, lower back, shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle/foot injuries. While trauma is often behind these types of injuries, many are related to overuse. Whether you are an avid or occasional cycler, you may be at risk of injury.
Serious motorcycle accident injuries can take place in many different ways. In many cases, motorcycle accidents are not the fault of the motorcycle driver.

Boating is a very popular recreational activity across Texas.
