Braggadocio Township, MO (January 25, 2022) – One man was left injured as a result of a truck crash in Pemiscot County on Sunday morning, January 24.
At around 11:20 a.m., a 2002 International tractor-trailer was traveling on US Highway 412. As the driver of the truck attempted to change lanes near Highway A, it struck a 2001 Ford F-250.
The driver of the Ford, 78-year-old James Hensley, sustained injuries in the accident. Hensley was transported to Pemiscot Memorial Hospital in Hayti for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with James Hensley at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment. The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well.
Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine. Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. To make the struggle even worse, towering medical bills start rolling in immediately.
When victims are harmed in accidents, due to the negligence of others, they often have legal options available to help them move forward. Victims harmed in crashes are able to recover compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they endure from their accidents. Some of the most common damages victims are able to recover include compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Medical costs (both immediate and long-term)
- Vehicle repairs
- Pain and suffering
It is important that victims seek the legal guidance of a Braggadocio Township car accident attorney as soon as possible.
