Speak With a St. Louis Semi-Truck Crash Lawyer About Your Case Today

5,000 passenger vehicle occupants die every year in semi-truck crashes. The most common causes of semi-truck crashes includes truck defects, tire blowouts, and bad weather conditions. If you are in a semi-truck crash and suffered head trauma, nerve damage, whiplash, or other injuries, you should get medical help right away. If your injuries go untreated, they can quickly become severe or permanently affect your health.

Semi-truck crashes can range in severity, but the step that you need to take after a minor or severe accident remains the same; you need to seek prompt medical attention. Some injuries aren’t visible to the naked eye and if left ignored can cause you to slip into a concussion or go into shock. Getting checked out by a physician allows your injuries to be diagnosed, treated, and documented in a medical report that can be used to support your insurance claim. If you are in a truck crash and need a Missouri Semi-Truck Crash Lawyer to support you through the process of seeking treatment and filing a claim against the truck driver that caused your injuries, the Dixon Injury Firm is available 24/7 to discuss your case.

Missouri Semi-Truck Crash Laws

4,102 people died in large truck accidents in 2017. 68 percent of these victims were passenger vehicle occupants, while only 17 percent of victims were semi-truck occupants. In non-fatal truck accidents, the leading type of injuries that are caused in semi-truck crashes includes driver-fatigue, failure to maintain, and distracted driving.

Truck drivers are required to follow federal and state truck regulations, and if violated, the consequences can be severe. Negligent CDL drivers could face the suspension or loss of their license, fees, jail time, and depending on the circumstances, the loss of their job. Some of the more common factors that are taken into account when deciding a truck driver’s consequences include: whether they were the only driver involved, the severity of the other driver’s injuries, whether there were unavoidable elements that caused the crash, and more.

If you are injured in a semi-truck crash that was caused by a truck driver’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for your harm and losses. Settlement amounts can vary greatly and range from the lower thousands to $5,000,000 depending on the type of insurance coverage the truck driver has – general liability is mandatory, but cargo insurance, non-trucking liability, physical damage, and terminal coverage are some of the other types of truck insurance policies – and the severity of the crash.

St. Louis Semi-Truck Crash Lawsuits

If you are injured or someone you know has been killed because of a semi-truck driver’s negligence, the truck driver could be required to pay for your harm and losses from the accident. There are two categories of damages involved with semi-truck crashes: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are losses or expenses that have a price tag attached to them, such as medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and funeral/burial expenses. Non-economic damages generally pertain to mental or physical distress that accompanies injuries from a crash or other expenses that arose that don’t have a dollar amount affixed to them.

Most states in the U.S. require CDL drivers that have harmed or killed another to compensate victims for the damages that they caused. The most common types of damages that can be recovered from a semi-truck crash includes:

  • Medical expenses such as bills, medicine, medical accessories, and other expenses caused in the accident
  • Pain and suffering that accompanies physical injuries from the crash
  • Lost wages that victims experienced because of the accident
  • Property damage that was caused in the semi-truck crash
  • Funeral or burial expenses caused by losing a family member in a fatal semi-truck crash

If you are in a semi-truck crash and are unsure what damages you are eligible to claim, it’s essential to consult a local St. Louis Semi-Truck Crash Lawyer about your case. An experienced attorney can analyze your case, determine if you are eligible to recover damages from the at-fault party and help you through the process of filing an insurance claim against the semi-truck driver.

Our St. Louis Semi-Truck Crash Lawyers Are Ready to Help

If you are injured in a semi-truck crash, it’s important to gather evidence from the scene to support your case. Without significant evidence from the accident, it can be impossible to prove that the negligent truck driver caused your injuries. Evidence can include photos, video, a copy of the police report from the semi-truck crash, and a medical report that details your injuries from the accident. A St. Louis semi-truck crash lawyer can be extremely helpful with gathering evidence and ensuring that the details of the crash are preserved.
