St. Louis Truck Accident

A car accident is always frightening, but if a truck is involved, it can be devastating. Large vehicles are a greater risk on the road; because of their sheer size, any driver negligence can have life-altering consequences—a fact that has been borne out by recent Missouri traffic accident statistics.

Missouri has been ranked as the 12th state with the most dangerous roads in the United States. Fatalities on state roadways have spiked recently, with truck accidents making up a significant portion. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP), there were 15,764 accidents involving commercial vehicles in 2019, resulting in 4,366 injuries and 145 deaths. 

At Morgan & Morgan, we understand that truck accidents can leave victims with debilitating injuries and overwhelming medical bills. If you have been involved in a truck accident, you don’t have to go it alone. Our attorneys can help—from pressuring insurance companies to rightfully pay your claims to fighting negligent drivers for the compensation you deserve.

  • If You’re in a Truck Accident

    Safety is the paramount concern whenever someone is involved in a large truck accident. Before anything else, make sure that you, your family, and your passengers are all safe, and then immediately call 911 if there are any injuries. Other important steps include:

    • If able, move your car to safety
    • Call the police
    • Document all injuries 
    • Take pictures of the damage and the accident scene
    • Do not accept blame for the accident
    • Get as much information as possible, including the truck driver’s name, trucking company, and insurance policy
  • Common Causes of Truck Accidents

    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has enacted regulations for large vehicles and trucking companies to ensure the safety of all vehicles on the road. Truck drivers can be held liable for accidents resulting from violations such as:

    • Distracted driving
    • Falsifying driving records
    • Not obeying traffic laws
    • Ignoring weight limits
    • Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or excessive tiredness
  • Who Can Be Held Liable?

    Specific parties that can be held liable for financial damages in truck accident lawsuits include financial firms that wrongfully deny claims and those whose negligent behavior contributed to the accident, including:

    • Truck drivers
    • Trucking companies
    • Truck parts manufacturers
    • Insurance companies
  • Types of Lawsuits

    Truck accident victims that choose to file a lawsuit must do so within five years of the accident according to Missouri law. The most commonly filed lawsuits include the following:

    • Negligence: If you suffered from a truck accident due to the careless or reckless actions of the driver, you can claim damages for negligence.
    • Product Liability: If defective vehicle components played a role in the truck accident, the manufacturer can be sued for compensation.
    • Wrongful Death: Truck accidents caused by negligence or misconduct that result in death could merit a wrongful death lawsuit on the part of surviving family members.
  • Compensable Damages

    Truck accident victims that prove negligence can be entitled to compensation for a number of damages, including:

    • Lost wages and income
    • Medical expenses
    • Pain and suffering
    • Decreased earnings
    • Mental anguish
