St. Joseph Truck Accident Attorney
Were You Injured in a Collision in St. Joseph, MO?
Every day, millions of Americans take to the streets and highways to commute, sharing the road with other drivers, bicyclists, motorcyclists and truckers alike. Unfortunately, each year, thousands of individuals are hurt or killed because of a truck accident. Truck accidents can be devastating, and if you or a loved one was involved in an accident, you may be able to obtain compensation by filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Determining liability in these cases can be difficult, but when you work with Ferguson and Schieber Law Firm, you can rest assured that your case will be handled by trusted and experienced St. Joseph personal injury attorneys.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) holds high standards for drivers, freight companies and loaders to ensure the safety of truckers and other drivers on the road. If you were in an accident with a big rig, the FMCSA, as well as our firm, will thoroughly review the truck's safety log, maintenance records and truckers' and loaders' schedules to determine if any laws and regulations were violated and whether those violations contributed to the cause of the accident. In some cases, one or more of these individuals may be determined to be liable for your injuries and damages:
- The truck driver
- The loader
- The manufacturer of a part or the truck
- The freight company
- The lessee
- The city or county (unsafe road conditions such as potholes, sinkholes, or inadequate signs or lighting)
Of course, there are some conditions that cannot be avoided, such as weather, but you may be able to hold a negligent individual accountable for the wrongs that were done to you by working with Ferguson and Schieber Law Firm.
