Drunk Driving Truck Accidents
Filing a Lawsuit for Your Injuries
When we share the highways in the St. Louis area with large commercial trucks, we likely do not consider that we may be in serious danger of an accident. Sadly, there have been tragic cases in which an accident was caused by a drunk truck driver. Truck drivers are required by federal law to have certification in order to get a commercial license. They are aware that their license will be revoked if they are found to driving drunk, but astonishingly, some of them continue to drive while intoxicated and innocent victims pay the price for their negligence.
If you or your loved one has become a victim of DWI accident caused by a drunk trucker, we understand what a major impact your injuries may have had on your life. In many cases, the injuries suffered in such accidents require extensive medical care and treatment, sometimes for the lifetime of the injured victim. In cases in which the victim has suffered a catastrophic injury such as paralysis, a brain injury or loss of limb, the claim must reflect the seriousness of the case and provide for the future care and income of the injured victim.
