St. Louis Truck Accident Lawyers

Helping Missouri Truck Accident Victims for 25+ Years

Due to the nature of these accidents, truck accident victims are often left with life-altering injuries. If you have been involved in a truck accident in St. Louis or the surrounding area, you need to protect yourself and your family.

It's important to retain legal counsel who can represent you and seek the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. And you should do this immediately, because the trucking company may have already started defending the case. When you work with Cantor Injury Law, LLC, we can help you preserve evidence, including black box data that records speeds and braking, air bag deployment, and other data, along with any video and phone records.

Cantor Injury Law has a proven success record in trucking accident cases. Recently, our firm helped win $5 million for a deserving family in a trucking death case. If you were injured, we are here to protect your best interests throughout the legal process.

Trucking accidents often result in serious injuries, including:

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents in St. Louis

Trucking accident cases tend to be more complex than ordinary automobile accidents because of the many federal laws governing trucking, and the fact that each state has its own trucking laws. Many of these large tractor-trailers travel through every state. Therefore, different laws may apply, depending on exactly where the accident occurred.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Tired, distracted, or unskilled drivers – Often, the negligence of a truck driver is to blame for a collision. Truck drivers will travel for hours at a time, contributing to potentially dangerous fatigue. Driving a semi-truck requires a great deal of skill, and an inexperienced driver can make mistakes that endanger others. Distracted driving is just as hazardous in a truck as it is behind the wheel of any vehicle.
  • The condition of the truck – If a semi-truck is not properly maintained, this can directly contribute to an accident. Like any vehicle, a malfunction with the engine, brakes, or other important system can cause the driver to lose control. This is particularly dangerous when dealing with a vehicle so large. 
  • Weight that is not properly distributed – An important component of proper truck handling is loading cargo in a way that evenly distributes the weight of the items. If a truck is not properly loaded, the uneven weight can cause issues for the driver, or cause the truck to jackknife. Jackknifing is when an unevenly weighted trailer bends, which can, in some cases, propel the truck to spin around.

Holding the Responsible Parties Accountable

Regardless of the cause of your accident, we believe that the driver who behaved negligently should be held accountable for their actions. A trucking company must be extra careful about which drivers they hire, especially considering the grave consequences of a truck driver's negligence. When trucking companies fail to properly screen their employees, they can be held liable alongside their drivers using the legal theories of negligent hiring.
