Located in the Midwest, Missouri is a growing state, with more than 6 million people calling the Show Me State home and thousands moving to Missouri each year to enroll at over 65 colleges and universities located within the state. Every day, people in Missouri are injured through no fault of their own. In addition to suffering physical pain, victims may incur medical bills and other direct out of pocket expenses. Making matters worse, accidents may cause victims to miss work for a considerable period of time, putting them even further behind.

Each day, thousands traverse Missouri’s many roadways, including I-55, I-70, I-64, and I-44. Missouri is unfortunately no stranger to auto accidents. All drivers in Missouri are expected to exercise due care behind the wheel. Drivers who fall below this standard of care may be considered negligent if they cause an accident with another driver. Examples of negligence include speeding, texting while driving, driving under the influence, and failing to maintain a safe lookout. Proving negligence in a Missouri car accident case can be critical in obtaining compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and non-economic losses like pain and suffering caused by the collision.
In Missouri, truck drivers must follow the same rules of the road as all other drivers. However, interstate truck drivers must follow additional rules promulgated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regarding mandatory rest breaks, hours of service, loading cargo, and transporting hazardous materials, among others. These regulations are designed to reduce accidents and injuries involving large commercial trucks, 18-wheelers, and buses. Thus, a truck driver’s failure to follow these regulations may be used as evidence to prove liability for your injuries. Many truck accident cases invoke the theory of vicarious liability, which is when an employer can be held responsible for an employee’s negligence committed within the course and scope of employment. An experienced attorney who handles Missouri car and truck wreck cases can investigate all potential theories of recovery on your behalf.
Each day, people across the country are harmed by defective or dangerous prescription medication or products. Missouri is no exception. For example, if you were struck by another car head-on but your airbag failed to deploy, you may be able to assert a product liability claim against the airbag manufacturer. Large corporations devote considerable resources towards defending against lawsuits from consumers, making it critical to retain a personal injury attorney in Missouri to fight for your interests and protect your legal rights.Call Our Personal Injury Attorneys Today for a Free Consultation
