Pursuing Justice For Truck Accident Victims

Getting into an accident involving a semi can be terrifying and life-altering. Once your immediate medical needs have been attended to, you may feel unsure about what is going to happen next. How will you pay your bills? Where will your income come from? Will you be able to work and support your family?

At Kujawski Marcus, LLC, our O'Fallon-based trial lawyers have the extensive experience needed to hold the negligent parties responsible for your accident accountable.

18-Wheeler Accidents Can Cause Serious Damage

18-wheelers are significantly larger than most other vehicles on the road. Therefore, they are capable of causing more extensive harm. If you were in an accident with one of these trucks, your injuries may be serious, leaving you permanently disabled. Tractor-trailer crashes commonly cause injuries such as:

  • Back and spinal cord damage
  • Head and brain trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Internal damage
  • Lacerations and other wounds

Medical care and therapy bills can quickly add up, and severe injuries can render you unable to work. Our team of attorneys is passionate about helping you seek appropriate compensation to meet these needs.

Determining Who Is At Fault

If you get into an accident with another car, the other driver and his or her insurance company will generally be the only parties involved in any litigation. However, in a collision that involves a semi, figuring out who is responsible can quickly become complicated. In addition to the driver of the truck, the freight company he or she works for may also be liable.

In addition, many drivers do not own their trucks so the person who does may also have acted in a negligent manner. That is why you need an experienced attorney to thoroughly investigate every facet of your accident, identify all of the parties who are responsible, and recover the compensation to which you may be entitled.
