Truck Accidents in Missouri
Being involved in a truck accident can be particularly terrifying experience. These massive vehicles have the potential to cause severe harm to anything they come in contact with. Unfortunately, we see countless people hurt as a result of crashes involving semis and commercial vehicles in the state of Missouri every year.
In many cases, truck accidents are a result of negligence. Drivers who switch lanes in a reckless manner can cause severe accidents that leave victims or devastating injuries that require medical care. This type of accident is often caused by a driver who is not paying attention to their surroundings and fails to see another vehicle in their blind spot. When this happens, the other driver may not have time to react and avoid a collision.
In some cases, these accidents can be avoided if the driver takes the time to check their mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes. However, many drivers fail to do this, resulting in serious accidents. If you or someone you love has been involved in a truck accident caused by a reckless driver, it is important to contact an experienced attorney who can help you protect your rights.
