Truck Accident Statistics | St. Louis Truck Accident Lawyers

The top 3 causes of truck accidents involving bad weather in Missouri include wet pavement, rain, and snow/sleet, closely followed by icy pavement, snow/slush, and fog. When there are bad weather conditions, it’s essential to reduce driving speeds by 3 to 13 percent, stay alert, keep a distance between you and other drivers, and give yourself more time than usual to come to a complete stop. Slick road conditions can cause traction issues, and as one of the more severe accident-related factors, cause severe, permanent, and life-altering injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, head injuries, back injuries, and in severe cases, partial or total disability.

According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, there were 66 fatalities and 243 critical injuries caused by commercial truck collisions between 2015-2017 in Missouri. After a truck accident involving bad weather, it’s crucial to stay calm, call 911, get medical treatment, and immediately consult a St. Louis Bad Weather Truck Accident Lawyer about the circumstances of your case. An experienced attorney can determine if you are eligible to recover a bad weather truck accident settlement under Missouri’s statute of limitations.

Trucking Laws in Missouri

Commercial truck drivers, otherwise known as CDL drivers, are required to comply with federal trucking laws. According to the United States Department of Transportation, commercial vehicle operators are restricted from working more than 168-hours in a week or driving for more than 11-hours in one shift. Following each shift, drivers are required to take 10 hours off to rest.

Federal Trucking Regulations

Failure to comply with federal trucking regulations can result in severe penalties, such as suspension or loss of a CDL license, fines, and in situations that involve severe accidents with another driver, jail time. Recently, a law was approved that restricts commercial drivers from using mobile phones while behind the wheel. One of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents is distracted driving, with the most common negligent driving behaviors being texting and driving.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the law was passed after research showed that CDL drivers that text and drive are 23.2 times more likely than commercial truck drivers that don’t text and drive to be involved in a severe accident.
