Legal Help from an Experienced Attorney When You've Been Injured in a Truck Accident in Mid Missouri
While car and truck accident cases are similar in many ways and require the same thorough investigation, trucking accidents are different in a couple of ways:
At the Lake Law Firm, we work hard to ensure our clients achieve the best financial outcome possible for their personal injury claim. We understand the difficulties you are facing and we handle every aspect of your case, so you can focus on your physical recovery.
- Injuries from trucking accidents are usually more severe.
No matter how large the car, when it is struck by an 18-wheeler, a semi truck, or a tractor-trailer that weighs a half ton or more, injuries to the auto passengers are likely to be extensive. It will be important to get good information on the full extent of medical and rehabilitation needs so that a trucking accident victim can get maximum financial recovery.
- The trucking industry is heavily regulated by the government.
There are regulations for maintenance schedules, weights and loading, driver training, driving schedules, and many other aspects of operating a commercial truck. It is important to work with a personal injury lawyer who understands state and federal trucking laws.
We will conduct a thorough evaluation into the causes of your accident, looking into maintenance records, driving logs to see if the driver was fatigued, hauling records to see if the truck was overweight. We have access to accident specialists who can evaluate whether the commercial truck had an unbalanced load or whether a defective part contributed to the accident.
We leave no stone unturned in determining the cause of the accident and identifying all responsible parties, which can include the company that hired the driver or trucking company.
