After a client was injured from a dump truck accident, our
personal injury firm in Springfield, Missouri, was able to settle with the defendant for $350,000
before going to court. The client hit the dump truck because it was on
the wrong side of the road, which resulted in serious injuries. The client's
leg was broken and he incurred neck and shoulder injuries. About 12% of
accidents in Missouri involve a large truck, which can result in very
serious injuries because of the relative size of the vehicle as compared
to the cars with which they collide.
Both federal law and Missouri statutes have strict regulations that govern
how large trucks must operate. Unfortunately, not all drivers follow the
rules of operation, which often leads to serious accidents. Fortunately,
our personal injury attorneys at Henry & Williams, P.C., know the
complex rules and regulations that truck drivers follow and carefully
investigate their claims.
