Missouri Truck Accident Attorneys
Based in Osage Beach & Serving Clients across Camden, Miller, Morgan & Laclede Counties
Semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, tankers, and other commercial vehicles fill the highways in Missouri and across the country. Being involved in an accident with one can be a devastating experience, leading to serious and life-threatening injuries. These massive vehicles can weigh in at 80,000 pounds, as opposed to the average 5,000 pounds of a passenger car. Furthermore, it takes them 40 percent longer to brake than an automobile. When colliding with a large, commercial truck, the occupants of passenger cars are much more likely to be killed or seriously injured than the trucker.
Whether you are driving along I-44—the busiest trucking corridor in the nation—or on I-70 when a truck crash happens, you and your family suddenly face a major crisis. You are forced to deal with serious and possibly life-changing injuries that can take weeks, months, or years to recover from. While you work toward recovery, you don’t have to fight the trucking companies on your own. Price & Randle is here to handle all of the complicated details of your personal injury claim. We can thoroughly investigate your accident to begin building a compelling case on your behalf.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck crashes can occur for many different reasons.
Causes of these accidents can include:
- Brake malfunction or failure
- Other mechanical failure
- Overloaded or improperly loaded cargo
- Poor truck maintenance
- Inability to see or take proper precautions due to blind spots
- Debris falling from the truck
- Driver fatigue due to overly long shifts
- Other driver violations
Our knowledgeable legal team knows the confusion you face immediately following a truck accident. You may want to trust the insurance companies, but they are businesses that have a bottom line to protect. Their financial gain takes priority over helping you get the money you deserve after the trauma of such an accident.
When you work with Price & Randle, you put our experience on your side. After a trucking accident, much needs to be done to determine who is at fault, what went wrong, and who is responsible for paying you the money you deserve. The longer you wait, the greater the likelihood that vehicles are repaired, accident scenes are changed, and other vital evidence for your claim is mislaid or forgotten. That is why we recommend that you contact us as soon as possible so that we can get started on putting your claim together.
