If you or someone you know has suffered due to the negligence of a truck driver, call Deputy & Mizell. Our truck accident lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks are here for you. Keep reading to learn some of the common causes of trucking accidents that were caused by commercial truck drivers and what you can do, legally as the victim of a trucking accident.
Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
Some trucking accidents are caused by commercial truck drivers themselves. One of the following reasons may be at play:
• The company the driver works for may have unrealistic expectations and has the driver running too fast to meet deadlines.
• The driver wasn’t trained well and has a lack of knowledge on safely driving semi-trucks.
What Are My Legal Options as the Victim of a Trucking Accident?
Because of the size and sheer force of semi-trucks, accidents involving these vehicles often result in catastrophic injuries to the driver and passengers of the smaller vehicle. If you have suffered injuries due to truck driver negligence, do not wait to speak to a truck accident attorney from our Lake of the Ozarks office. We can walk you through the process of seeking compensation to cover all accident-related expenses, and work to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process. We have significant experience dealing with insurance companies in these matters and are knowledgeable about what steps to take to ensure that you aren’t taken advantage of. We have obtained several multimillion-dollar vehicle accident settlements on behalf of individuals who have been injured in truck accidents, and family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident.
Fatal Trucking Accidents
If you have lost a family member in a fatal truck or car collision, you may be entitled to significant compensation through a wrongful death claim. Our attorneys can evaluate your case and help you seek compensation for medical costs and hospitalization (if applicable), funeral expenses, loss of income and other damages associated with your loss.
