St. Louis Large Trucking Accident Lawyers

Collision with an 18-Wheeler or Semi-Truck

Semi-trucks and big rigs often travel through Missouri on their cross continental routes. As a result, the Missouri freeways are often overloaded with eighteen wheelers and other semi-trucks, creating a dangerous combination for Missouri drivers. If you or someone you love was injured in an automobile accident with a semi-truck or other large commercial vehicle, it is important to contact a Missouri tractor trailer accident attorney immediately to determine if you have reason to file a claim.

The average fully loaded semi-truck or big rig can easily weigh over 80,000 pounds. Unfortunately, the average automobile on Missouri roadways is only 3000 pounds. As a result, if you are injured in an accident with one of these large commercial big rigs, the results can be devastating.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has very strict laws to ensure that drivers of these large trucks use extra caution when driving. Unfortunately, many companies routinely urge their drivers to break these laws in an attempt to increase profits and decrease costs. In fact, driver fatigue accounts for almost 40% of all trucking accidents in the United States.

When an accident occurs, trucking companies aggressively defend their drivers in an attempt to minimize their financial responsibility. They may offer you a large cash settlement quickly to avoid any legal action being taken against them. Unfortunately, these cash settlements are usually only a fraction of what you deserve and may not be enough to cover long term medical expenses or treatments.

If you or someone you love was injured in a collision with a large commercial big rig or semi-truck, it is important to contact a Missouri large truck accident attorney immediately. Since the injuries sustained in these accidents can be devastating, compensation may be needed for medical expenses both now and in the future. If your personal injury attorney determines that the truck driver or trucking company violated any of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (49 C.F.R. §§ 350-399), you may be able to file a personal injury claim.
