It’s not always easy to tell what negligence is and what it isn’t. There are, however some common accidents routinely caused by negligent drivers to help out:
Truck accident statistics in Missouri point to the need to keep truckers and trucking companies accountable. According to Missouri Highway Patrol, nearly 1,000 people were killed in traffic crashes in Missouri in 2014 and that more than 30,000 people were injured in traffic crashes in the same year. Many of those crashes took place in larger cities like Springfield or Columbia, but even smaller cities had a number of fatal crashes in a study citing 2016 data.
Being involved in a truck accident can be an overwhelming experience even in the best of circumstances. Worst case scenario, you might find yourself with a future very different from the one you envisioned.Truck accident attorney Darryl Isaacs – “The Hammer” – addresses accidents involving big rigs and large commercial vehicles.

Be sure to view our checklist on essential steps to safety steps after a truck accidentin Missouri and across the nation!
In some cases, an accident is not the truck driver’s fault. If a car merges too close in front of the truck and causes the driver to slam on his or her brakes, the truck could jackknife and hit other drivers. High winds sometimes push trucks over on their sides, even if the driver is going below the speed limit. However, many truck accidents are the fault of the driver, the trucking company, the truck owner, the maintenance crew or even the dispatcher. Trucking accident causes include:
Secondary injuries, such as infections, as well as autoimmune diseases and diabetes could cause injuries to take longer to heal. You are more susceptible to infections if you have diabetes or an autoimmune disease. Even if your injuries seem minor, you should always seek medical attention after a truck accident. Additionally, some injuries take hours or even days to manifest.
An assembled team of experienced Missouri attorneys can help determine the monetary damages you might expect to recover.
Special damages, often referred to as economic damages, have a price attached to them and are meant to make you whole again. Economic damages include past and future medical expenses, including physical, cognitive and psychological therapies; past and future lost wages; medical aids, such as wheelchairs, walkers and crutches; and funeral and burial expenses.
While insurance companies might have their own definition of long-term injuries, Social Security defines a long-term injury as one that is expected to last for over 12 months or that is expected to cause your death.

Truck accident settlements and lawsuits are often complicated because of the number of defendants that might hold some liability for your injuries. Often, parties other than the driver are at fault for the accident. You should retain an attorney in the event that you have long-term or permanent injuries, or in the event that more than one person is liable for your injuries. Your insurance company might give you a low-ball offer or try to deny your claim, or it might not figure in enough compensation for long-term injuries.
Never speak to your insurance company regarding the accident other than to tell the representative that you were in an accident and the location of the accident. Let the representative know that your Missouri truck accident lawyer will contact him or her shortly.
