WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE A MISSOURI ATTORNEY?
The laws surrounding trucking are complicated and, following an accident, it is often you and your family against the trucking company, their insurance provider, and their lawyers. You need to be able to rely on a lawyer that can guide you throughout the process and go above and beyond to make this difficult situation more bearable.
We strive to reach an amicable settlement and fair compensation from the liable parties but we are experienced litigators and will not hesitate to take your case to trial to ensure that you receive adequate financial compensation. Here is how we can help:
As soon as you call us, we will jump into action and get involved in the ongoing investigation, making sure that no stones are left unturned and that the appropriate police report is filed. We are familiar with applicable trucking regulations such as the Missouri State Statutes and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which applies to trucks carrying loads interstate.
NEGOTIATING WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES
When faced with such a traumatic event, it may seem appealing to accept a settlement offered by an insurance company and simply walk away. However, the trucking company insurer’s goal is to limit its financial liability; victims of a trucking accident may be entitled to additional financial compensation and are often not to blame for what happened. We can make sure that your rights are protected.
ENSURING THAT NEGLIGENT PARTIES ARE HELD ACCOUNTABLE
Maybe the truck driver had been driving for more than 11 hours over a 14 hour period, without the mandatory regulatory 10 hour time off between shifts. Or maybe he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Perhaps the accident was the result of an unsafe load. The trucking company may not have carried out its mandatory periodic inspection of the truck.
In any case, we will determine which party was negligent and ensure that they are held accountable for the pain and suffering that they have caused you or your loved one.
SECURING APPROPRIATE COMPENSATION
If you are the victim of a trucking accident in Missouri, our goal is to ensure that you receive reasonable compensation for your damages. If you lost a family member to a trucking accident, we can help you seek compensation for their wrongful death.
Compensation can include recouping expenses such as medical bills and lost wages, but also expenses that may seem less tangible right after the accident such as loss of earning capacity, ongoing rehabilitation costs, and damages for pain and suffering. We will do the appropriate calculations on your behalf and consider every factor that could affect the amount of your potential compensation.
