Drivers are under a lot of pressure to deliver on time; as a result, they often drive through the night and became drowsy or turn to drugs for help.

At other times, a truck company can be held liable for failing to maintain a truck properly. If you have been seriously injured in a truck accident, you may be eligible for compensation. Consulting with a seasoned Missouri truck accident lawyer in St. Louis could help you determine if you are owed compensation for you injuries and damages.

  • Careless driving during poor weather conditions
