St. Louis Truck Accident Attorney

Truck Accident Lawyer St. Louis

There are many large trucks in and around St. Louis, and they can cause serious injuries in the event of a crash. If you or a loved one are injured and need help from a truck crash lawyer, the team at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. is ready to help. We have the experience you need to get to the bottom of what happened. Our goal is to secure compensation for all of your crash-related expenses.

Truck accident statistics

We need to look at two sources of data to gain a clear picture of these incidents. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), we know that approximately 148,000 people were injured, and 4,761 people were killed due to large truck accidents during the latest reporting year across the US.

Looking closer at the data provided by the Missouri DOT for that same year, we can see that there were 13,685 commercial vehicle crashes. We do not have a specific breakdown of how many of those vehicles were large trucks, but we do know they caused 122 fatalities and over 4,000 injuries.

Large trucks caused devastating injuries

When we discuss large trucks, we are talking about a range of vehicles. This can include:

  • Tractor-trailers / semi-trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Construction trucks
  • Trash collection trucks
  • And more

The FMCSA says that a fully loaded semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Compare that to the average weight of a passenger vehicle (4,000 pounds), and it is easy to understand why these crashes cause such devastating injuries.

It is not uncommon for the St. Louis truck accident lawyers at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. to see the following:

How do these incidents occur?

We want to focus on two major causes of these crashes:

  1. Truck driver negligence. Truck drivers must be trained to operate their vehicles and should always follow FMCSA rules and regulations regarding hours of service per day and week. Drivers should never operate while impaired or while distracted.
  2. Truck company negligence. Trucking companies must regularly inspect and maintain each vehicle to ensure no systems fail while the truck is moving on the roadway.

We are ready to help you through this
