Maybe you saw the truck swerving before your collision. Perhaps you saw the trucker yawn, or heard him complain about his lack of sleep after the moment of impact. While you may be sympathetic to the demands of a job that leaves little room for restful and restorative sleep, right now, your primary concern should be properly focused on your own recovery.
Find Out What Really Caused Your Accident
In order to recover damages from a defendant or a defendant’s insurance company, you will likely need to prove that the trucker, or trucking company, was negligent and that the negligence caused the accident and your resulting injuries. One form of negligence may be if the trucker was too tired to operate his vehicle safely and if that fatigue caused him to make a mistake that resulted in your truck crash.
An experienced Missouri truck accident attorney can investigate what happened to you and help you learn the truth about what caused your accident. If a tired and negligent trucker caused your accident, then your lawyer can also help you recover the damages that you deserve for your Missouri truck wreck injuries. Those damages may include compensation for your past, current, and future medical expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket costs, pain, suffering, and other harms caused by the crash.
