Assisting Victims of Truck Accidents with Recovering Monetary Compensation for their Injuries

When truck drivers operate their vehicles in a careless manner, they create a serious driving hazard for everyone else who is on the road at that time. When a truck driver operates his or her vehicle negligently and causes an accident, the accident victim may be able to bring a claim or lawsuit against the responsible truck driver – and in some cases, against the trucking company that employs the driver.

Typical Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can occur for any number of reasons. In many cases, these accidents happen because of negligent driving on the part of the truck driver. Common instances of negligent truck driving include the following:

  • Exceeding the posted speed limit for trucks and tractor-trailers on Kansas City roadways
  • Operating the truck too fast for the weather conditions (i.e., snow or rain on the roadway)
  • Failing to load the truck or operate the truck in accordance with federal and state motor carrier regulations
  • Engaging in distracted driving, such as when the driver texts while driving, uses other electronic equipment while operating the vehicle, or makes a phone call on a cellular phone that is not equipped with a hands-free device
  • Failing to use a turn signal or weaving in and out of traffic on a busy highway

If you have been injured as a driver or passenger in a truck accident that was caused by some form of truck driver negligence, a Montee Law Firm truck accident lawyer can help you pursue the monetary damages that you need.

Injuries in Truck Accidents

Truck accidents that are caused by negligent driving can, unfortunately, cause serious physical injuries. If you suffer serious injuries in a truck accident, you may have to miss time away from your job and spend time at doctor’s offices and physical therapy centers receiving treatment. Notwithstanding the potential medical costs and lost wages, injured truck accident victims sometimes also suffer pain and other symptoms that can last for the rest of their lifetimes.

When a large truck collides with a smaller vehicle, the injured individuals in the smaller vehicle can be jarred around and may even strike a part of their body on the interior of their vehicles, such as the window, console, or headrest. When that happens, accident victims can suffer serious injuries which may include the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries, such as sprain/strains and muscular contusions
  • Traumatic brain or head injuries (TBIs)
  • Back and spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Death
Pursuing a Claim Arising out of a Missouri Truck Accident

If you are injured in a Missouri truck accident, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against a negligent truck driver, as well as the trucking company that employs the driver. The trucking company may be responsible for the truck driver’s negligence, as well as for negligently hiring or retaining the driver, such as if the driver a bad driving record, and the trucking company knew about it.

An experienced truck accident lawyer can help you determine whom you can file a claim or lawsuit against and can help you pursue your claim for monetary damages.
