There are many semi-trucks on roadways in and around Missouri. Our central location with easy interstate access makes us the perfect trucking route for many companies. While this is great for our economy, it also means that there are statistically more semi truck related accidents. As you can imagine, when a semi truck has an accident, with their large size and weight, it often becomes serious, even deadly.
It takes special legal handling to properly deal with semi truck accidents. Semi-trucks are either company owned or ran by owner operators, both of which are under the U.S. Department of Transportation. If an accident occurs between a semi-truck and another vehicle, special investigation is required. This includes a careful examination of maintenance records, log books and a review of potential safety violations.
