Truck Accident Fatalities | Speak With a St. Louis Fatal Truck Accident Lawyer Today

Truck accident fatalities are unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence. Driver fatigue and speeding are two of the top causes of truck accident fatalities. CDL drivers are required by federal commercial truck regulations to not drive when fatigued, but in a recent study it was found that 13% of CMV drivers were considered fatigued at the time of an accident.

The most common types of accidents that result in truck accident fatalities include rollover accidents, head-on collisions, and jackknife accidents. While not all accidents are preventable, the majority of truck accidents are caused by negligent driving behaviors. The most common causes of truck accident fatalities include:

  • Speeding – according to the FMCSA, 23% of truck crashes involved speeding
  • Driving Under the Influence – though there are consequences to violating CDL regulations, 4% of truck accident fatalities involved a truck driver whose blood alcohol content was above the legal limit
  • Distracted Driving71% of truck accidents in 2009 were caused by distracted driving
  • Driver Fatigue – the NHTSA reports that 800 fatal accidents in 2013 occurred in the U.S. because of drowsy driving, and commercial truck drivers are one of the most likely parties to drive fatigued
  • Bad Weather – the average commercial truck is 20-30 times heavier than a standard passenger vehicle. Due to sheer size and weight, it takes significantly longer for a truck to stop than passenger vehicles. Slick weather conditions can make it more difficult for commercial trucks to stop and increase the likelihood of truck accident fatalities

If you have lost a family member in a truck accident, it’s crucial to hire a Truck Accident Fatalities Lawyer to represent your case. An experienced lawyer can help you file a compelling claim, protect the victim’s rights, and defend your wrongful death claim against the trucking company’s high-powered insurance company.

St. Louis Wrongful Death Truck Accident Lawsuits

Losing someone is one of the most difficult experiences that a person can go through, especially when it’s caused by another driver’s negligence. If a truck driver causes a fatal truck accident, they could face the suspension or loss of their CDL license, fines, jail time, and the loss of their job. If you lost a family member in a truck accident and filed a wrongful death claim against the responsible driver with the assistance of a Truck Accident Fatalities Lawyer, you could be eligible to recover the following damages:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Property Damage
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Funeral and Burial Expenses
  • Additional Present and Future Expenses Caused by the Crash

If you are unsure whether you are eligible to file a claim for the death of someone you are close to, a St. Louis Truck Accident Lawyer can assess the facts of the case, determine if you are eligible to recover damages, create a personalized plan, and defend your case against the truck driver that caused the victims’s sudden death.
