How Can a St. Louis Truck Accident Lawyer Help With My Case?

When a truck accident happens, the other party’s insurance agent, lawyer, and other defenses will likely attempt to get an incriminating statement from you about the crash. A lawyer can protect you from the other party’s insurance company, keep details from the accident safe, and file a compelling claim against the at-fault party in the crash. If the other party tries to offer you a lower settlement than your case deserves, your St. Louis Truck Accident Claim Lawyer can defend your case and negotiate for a higher settlement. If at any point you have any questions or concerns, your attorney can address your issues and ensure that you are confident about the outcome of your truck accident case.

Every year there are more than 4,000 fatal truck accidents in the U.S. 73% of truck accident fatalities are passenger vehicle occupants, while 24% are commercial truck occupants. On average, the most common causes of truck accident damages include driver fatigue, speeding, drugs and alcohol, and failure to maintain a vehicle. There is often more than one causation in a truck accident, which can make determining fault more difficult, but with an experienced attorney by your side, fault can quickly and easily be determined.

What Damages Can I Recover with a Missouri Truck Accident Claim?

The maximum weight for a commercial truck is 80,000 pounds including cargo. Truck accidents involving a passenger vehicle are often severe and cause catastrophic injuries and damages. If you have experienced harm or losses because of a truck accident, you could be eligible to recover damages from the responsible driver. The most common types of damages that are recovered from a truck accident include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and in fatal truck accidents, funeral and burial expenses. It can be difficult to figure out what type of damages you are eligible to recover, but a St. Louis Truck Accident Claim Lawyer can simplify this process and walk you through the process of recovering damages for your pain and suffering caused by a negligent truck driver.

Commercial truck drivers are required to follow strict federal and state trucking regulations. If a truck driver causes an accident and is at fault, they could be required to compensate the other party for their injuries and damages from the crash, face the suspension or loss of their CDL license, pay fines, serve time in jail, and depending on the severity of the accident, face the loss of their job. If you are in a truck accident, it’s essential to hire a St. Louis Truck Accident Lawyer to represent your case.

A lawyer can help you gather evidence from the accident, determine if you are eligible to claim damages from more than one party, and file an insurance claim to recover compensation. Filing a Missouri truck accident claim without a lawyer can negatively impact the amount of damages you are eligible to recover from the crash, allow the other party’s insurance agent room to take advantage of your lack of legal knowledge, and increase the chances of accepting a lower insurance settlement.
