$1.325 Million Settlement for Fatal Missouri Tractor Trailer Crash

Wrongful Death Tractor Trailer Accident

This case involved a fatal tractor trailer crash on Highway 55 in Ste. Genevieve County. A lawsuit was filed against the tractor trailer driver, the trucking company, a road construction company, and the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.

The tractor trailer crossed the median and crashed into decedent’s vehicle causing a traumatic brain injury and a pulmonary contusion. The decedent died three days after the truck accident at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO.

Plaintiffs alleged the tractor trailer driver was traveling too fast for conditions, operating over the allowed hours of service, keeping an inaccurate log book, and driving while fatigued. These are all violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.

Plaintiffs also alleged there was flushing present in the roadway. This was the basis for the claims against the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission and highway contractor Chester Bross Construction Company.
