Missouri Semi Truck Accident Lawyers
Semi trucks are the biggest, heaviest, and most dangerous vehicles on the road. Victims of Missouri truck accidents understand this better than most as they have already suffered as a result. After being injured in a big rig collision, you likely have to undergo long-term and potentially invasive medical treatments and may even suffer life-long disability as a result of your injuries. Managing your everyday life and supporting your family while trying to recover from serious injuries is too much to ask of anyone and you do not have to face such challenges on your own.
By filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault parties, you can obtain justice and the compensation you need to pay for medical care, treatment, rehabilitation, and lost wages. At the Law Offices of Cullan and Cullan M.D., J.D., our lawyers have the medical and legal knowledge, skills, and resources to get you the results to protect your future.
What You’re Up Against
There are a variety of factors that may contribute to a semi truck accident, but truck driver negligence is one of the most common. Fatigued driving, drunk driving, and violations of rules and regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) can all potentially cause a serious injury or fatal accident. Trucking company negligence, such as poor vehicle maintenance or repair, and illegal loading practices can also lead to such accidents. Both these parties may be held liable if their negligence caused a crash, but their insurance companies will fight tooth and nail to avoid paying out any claims, fairly or at all.
Dealing with a big insurance company with their own lawyers and resources on your own can hinder your recovery and create unnecessary burdens for you and your family. With an attorney at your side, who is also a doctor, you can be sure that you will be effectively represented. We understand the financial and emotional impact injuries can have and can ensure that insurance companies don’t succeed in attempting to downplay your losses to avoid taking financial responsibility.
