Truck Accidents in Missouri
Truck accidents are more likely to result in severe injuries for those involved. These vehicles can weigh more than 80,000 pounds, which means they are likely to cause significant damage to anything they come in contact with. When small passenger vehicles are involved in accidents with trucks, the outcome is usually devastating.
We see many people left with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and internal organ damage as a result of truck accidents in our state every year. Victims who are harmed in truck accidents often have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical care. Quite often, victims have to spend an extended period off work to recover.
