Truck Accident Injuries

Missouri Truck Accident Attorney

Large commercial trucks including delivery trucks and 18-wheelers share the streets and highways of St. Louis, and we hope that the drivers are following the rules of safety when operating their vehicles. In some cases, however, the truck driver is fatigued, aggressive, inattentive or otherwise negligent, and the results can be disastrous for other drivers and their passengers. When a large truck makes unsafe lane changes, any passenger vehicle is in serious danger. When the truck driver is speeding, reckless or takes risks, disastrous accidents can occur and innocent victims lose their lives or suffer severe injuries.
