Due to lawsuits over the last 30 years, legislators and the trucking industry have made strides in protecting other drivers from tired, intoxicated, and reckless truckers. Unfortunately, these types of accidents still occur on a regular basis on all Missouri Highways. Many companies still fail to properly screen employees and create unrealistic expectations for drivers to deliver goods. But even a skilled driver can cause an accident.
In 2016 alone, our firm settled 2 trucking cases where our client’s cars were torn to shreds. The sheer size of a truck causes the damage and injuries to be far more severe when an innocent motorist is hit. We have handled more trucking cases, but these two accidents remind us how lucky our client was to be alive.
