Truck Accidents in Missouri
A motor vehicle accident can completely change your life. Unfortunately, we see many people injured due to the negligence of other motorists. Even though there are laws in place to prevent drivers from engaging in negligent actions, we continue to see innocent people pay the price of their actions.
Each day, crashes occur as a result of drivers who are under the influence, distracted, or otherwise careless while behind the wheel. When innocent people are involved in accidents with people who engage in these types of actions, they run the risk of suffering from significant injuries.
We see many people suffer from spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis. Many other victims require emergency surgery for internal organ damage. The impacts of collisions can be immediate and far-reaching. When semi-trucks are involved in these accidents, the chances of severe injuries are dramatically increased.
