Clearwater, Florida – Law enforcement released crash scene photographs from their investigation into the automobile accident involving Nick Bollea (Hulk Hogan’s son) and John Graziano. Graziano, who was seriously injured in the acccident and sustained severe brain damage, is depicted in some of the photographs while in the hospital.

The lawyer for the Graziano family has asked the media to refrain from releasing some of the photographs which he says are particularly gory and troubling.

The Florida personal injury attorneys at our law firm always seek to protect the privacy of our clients and their families while working tirelessly to achieve substantial compensation they deserve. When a loved one has suffered catastrophic injuries, the family shouldn’t have to worry about anything except making sure he or she is receiving the medical attention they need.

The March 5, 2008 tractor-trailer wreck sent one person to the hospital on air rescue. The rescue helicopter dispatched by the Miami-Dade Fire Department had to land on the street.

Hazmat teams were also sent to the accident scene to clean up the resulting fuel spill.

According to traffic statistics, the injuries sustained in truck accidents, especially those involving huge semi tractor-trailors, are generally more serious in nature than injuries sustained in car accidents. One reason for this is because these big rigs typically weigh as much as 80,000 lbs when fully loaded. That’s several tons heavier than the average passenger car.

Some of the many catastrophic injuries typically resulting from a truck accident include:
traumatic brain injury,
head injuries,
brain damage,
burn injuries,
quadriplegia,
paraplegia,
spinal cord injuries,
– severe orthopedic injuries,
coma, and – death
