Springfield Truck Accident Lawyers
Missouri Semi Truck Accident Attorneys
Under regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), trucking companies are responsible for keeping track of their drivers on the road at all times. That includes documenting that the driver is in the cab or hotel room sleeping when required, eating properly and maintaining a safe schedule behind the wheel. In many motor vehicle accident cases, truck drivers are found to be in violation of FMCSA regulations or are behind schedule and trying to make up for lost time by speeding or ignoring safe driving precautions.
Winning a personal injury or wrongful death case against a trucking company in Missouri requires understanding the federal regulations and strategically investigating and preparing the evidence to refute truck company claims that the injured car driver was at fault. Trucking companies are often represented by their own insurance defense team and many have their own investigators on call in the area of the accident, ready to be on the scene of the wreck within a short time.
We are not a settlement mill. We seek the full and fair compensation you deserve.
If the insurance company won't pay you fairly, we will seek a maximum verdict award in court. We won't promise you a maximum recovery, then ask you to settle for a low amount. Don't talk to an insurance adjuster until you have talked to an experienced personal injury lawyer at our firm.
If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury in a truck accident on a road in central Missouri or southwestern Missouri, which you believed was caused by a negligent trucker, talk to an attorney at Hall Ansley Rodgers & Sweeney right away. Truck accident injury and wrongful death claims often have multiple liability, including other drivers on the road. Perhaps you even share some of the responsibility. Missouri is a comparative liability state. That means that the percentage of damages you can claim for your injury and losses will be restricted to the percentage of damage determined for the other driver or drivers involved.
