TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Resolving Truck Accident Claims in Missouri and Illinois

Any accident involving a semi truck or heavy construction vehicle is likely to result in severe physical injuries, if not death. It is also likely to generate difficult and complex litigation against several corporate defendants involved in different aspects of the trucking industry.

If you need advice and representation about your legal alternatives for recovering money damages, contact an experienced St. Louis truck accident lawyer at the St. Louis law firm of Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard, P.C.

Our experience with truck accident litigation allows us to cut through the tangle of liability issues by finding violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations wherever they might have occurred with respect to vehicle maintenance and inspection, driver’s hours behind the wheel and handling of particular cargos. Our ability to relate particular violations of the federal trucking regulations to your accident and injuries can lead to highly productive settlement negotiations with the responsible defendant’s insurers.

Experience. Integrity. Results. Call 314-433-9131 or toll free 866-285-4611.

As well as cases involving semi/18-wheeler truck wrecks or accidents involving other tractor-trailer combinations, we also represent accident victims and surviving families in cases involving other commercial vehicles, such as the following:

  • Construction vehicles ranging from dump trucks to mobile cranes
  • Repair and maintenance vans
  • Delivery and parcel express trucks
  • Private or public buses, mobility vans, airport shuttles, hospitality vans and other passenger vehicles
  • Emergency response vehicles, such as fire engines or police cars

Accidents involving even relatively small commercial vehicles can raise highly complex issues of liability and insurance coverage in much the same way as heavy truck accidents. Several potential defendants might have differing responsibilities as to hiring, training or supervision of the driver, or have different contractual or ownership roles concerning the vehicle itself. Our ability to sort through these complexities can give you a definite advantage in resolving the case on favorable terms.
