What to Do After a Truck Accident in Missouri

It's important to collect physical evidence from the crash site to the extent you are able to do so. Take photos of the crash scene if you can. Gather the names and numbers of any eyewitnesses present. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), any accident-related documents must be kept by the trucking companies. They only have to keep these documents for a certain amount of time, however, so it is important to take action right away to protect your rights.

You may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability

Truck Accidents Caused By Driver Error or Negligence

Although truck accidents can happen for a number of different reasons, one thing always remains the same: most accidents are preventable. If you were injured in an accident caused by a negligent truck driver, you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences. Let the injury lawyers at Klenofsky Law Firm fight for the level of compensation you deserve.

Many truck accidents are caused by driver negligence, including:

  • Failing to sleep or take mandatory breaks
  • Failing to conduct routine truck maintenance
  • Overloading or loosely loading the truck’s cargo
  • Driving without the necessary level of training
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving recklessly or at excessive speeds

In some truck accident cases, there is more than one responsible party. If the trucking company who hired the driver did so without training them properly, addressing on-the-job drug or alcohol use, or enforcing important safety regulations, they too may be liable for your injuries. Our firm can fully investigate the cause of your accident and identify all liable parties.
