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.

The Missouri truck accident lawyers of Meyerkord & Meyerkord have extensive experience in the claims process in truck accident cases; we are ready to provide you with a free evaluation of your case and your legal options as soon as you contact us for help.

Common Types of Truck Accident Injuries

Any type of motor vehicle collision is capable of causing life-changing injuries, but this is especially true of accidents involving semi-trucks, which can weigh up to 80,000 pounds.

It is not uncommon for the victims of such accidents to suffer injuries such as:

  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Crushed or severed limbs
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Burns
  • Fractured bones
  • Paralyzing spinal cord injuries including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Fatal injuries

Compensation for Serious Injuries

Whatever type of injury you have suffered, you should not be forced to pay the price for the trucker's negligence. Let us fight for your right to fair compensation! With our help, you may be able to secure an insurance settlement or jury verdict to pay for all of your medical expenses, including emergency treatment, hospitalization, surgery, ongoing rehabilitative care and any type of equipment or medication you may require. You can additionally receive compensation for your lost income and reduced earning power, as well as damages for your pain, suffering and mental anguish.

Contact us now to discuss the situation and learn how much your case may be worth.
