During the morning rush hour, an auto accident resulted in the death of one person and two others suffering serious injuries in St. Louis County. According to authorities, a collision between a semi-truck and a car occurred on Thursday at around 7:15 a.m. The accident happened as the vehicles traveled on I-270 southbound near Manchester Road.

The events immediately following an auto accident can be traumatic and stressful. While most people are aware that they should contact the authorities following a serious accident, some individuals do not know that they should also contact an auto accident attorney soon after the crash. Of course, seeking the necessary medical treatment should be a victims first priority, and after they are stabilized, it is important to seek a legal consultation to determine their rights for justice. An attorney will investigate your accident to determine the proper avenue to obtain justice as well as deserved compensation.
