I-64, I-70, I-44, I-55 and other St. Louis highways are busy corridors of commercial traffic. When careless truck drivers enter these roads, the situation can turn tragic in an instant.

Determining the Causes of Truck Accidents
When handling truck accident claims, our attorneys conduct thorough investigations, working to identify the cause of the accident. Our investigations often uncover evidence of negligence and violations of state and federal trucking regulations. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Faulty truck maintenance
- Overloaded trucks/unsecured loads
- Driver fatigue
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Speeding and reckless driving
Because of the speed and mass involved in truck accidents, the resulting injuries are often severe and catastrophic. Many truck accidents result in wrongful death. We represent people who have suffered serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and other injures due to the negligence of truck drivers and trucking companies. We also represent families who have lost loved ones in fatal truck crashes.
