  • Rain, Sleet, or Snow
  • Wind Storms
  • Lightning
  • Fog

CDL drivers are required to drive in all types of weather, so chances are if you are on the road while it’s snowing, raining, or windy, you’ll come across a commercial truck. It’s essential that if you are on the road to be cautious around commercial trucks and keep your distance to prevent an accident from happening. On average it takes large trucks 20-40 percent longer than passenger vehicles to come to a complete stop.

Bad Weather Truck Accident Laws in Missouri

Commercial truck drivers are required to follow federal and state trucking regulations under Title 49 of the Federal Motor Carrier Association’s commercial truck regulations. If you are in a bad weather truck accident and there are signs of negligence from the truck driver such as speeding, driving under the influence, driver fatigue, or failure to maintain, you could be eligible to recover compensation from the at-fault truck driver and their employer. Article § 392.14 of the FMCSA states that extreme caution should be used by truck driver’s when “snow, ice, sleet, fog, mist, rain, dust or smoke adversely affect visibility or traction.”

After a truck accident, drivers are required to undergo mandatory drug and alcohol testing and report the crash to their employer – if a truck driver fails to do this, they risk the suspension or revocation of their CDL license, jail time, and be required to compensate you and other drivers involved in the accident for damages.

Commercial truck drivers are required to carry general liability insurance, but can sometimes hold additional coverage such as cargo insurance, non-trucking insurance, and other policies. On average, large truck insurance policies can be worth between $50,000 – $5,000,000.00. There are different ways that truck settlements can be determined, but they are typically calculated by adding up economic damages from an accident such as medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages, then depending on the severity of the crash, multiplying that total by a number between 1-5, with 5 being severe, to reach a settlement that include economic and non-economic damages.
