Truck Accidents & Trucking Insurance

We Can Help You Level the Playing Field

When you have been injured or lost a loved one in a serious truck accident, it is in your best interest to take immediate action to defend your right to fair compensation by hiring an experienced a truck accident attorney in Missouri to represent you against the insurance company. If your accident was caused by the truck driver's negligence or by the negligence of the trucking company, then you have a right to demand monetary damages for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, if you try to settle the claim on your own, the odds will be stacked against you.

What You Are Up Against

Insurance is a multi-billion-dollar industry, and the company responsible for paying on your claim has vast resources for defending its bottom line. For example, trucking insurance companies typically have their own team of investigators who travel to the scene of the accident, evaluate the road conditions, inspect the physical damage to the vehicles, and collect statements from the accident victims. Their goal in everything they do is to gather evidence that will minimize or eliminate the insurance company's liability to pay on claims such as yours. In light of this fact, it is advisable to hire an attorney at the outset of the case. You should at all costs avoid speaking directly with an adjuster, investigator, or claims representative, as you are at risk of saying things that would make it difficult or impossible for you to recover a fair settlement. Politely refer any calls or requests for a statement to the office of Meyerkord & Meyerkord as your legal representation.

How Our Missouri Truck Accident Attorneys Can Help

We have extensive experience in representing the victims of truck accidents and we know how to successfully navigate the unique challenges posed by this type of case. For example, truck rollovers, jackknife accidents, and other trucking accidents frequently involve multiple vehicles, so the case commonly features several insurance claims being filed on the behalf of victims. There is also the possibility that the accident will be covered by more than one policy, such as if the trucker and the trucking company each maintain separate coverage. Let us guide you through this experience and fight for your right to fair compensation for your losses.
