Nancy S. Moss, a 76 year old woman from Springfield, Missouri, died in a fatal Lawrence County Missouri truck accident on November 16, 2011 at 11:25am.
The fatal Missouri truck accident occurred on Missouri highway 14 at route ZZ in Marionville, Missouri. A 2007 International truck driven by Arnold W. Messex of Willow Springs, Missouri collided with Moss’s 2009 Chevrolet Aveo. The Chevrolet was totaled in the accident. The crash was forceful enough to cause Ms. Moss’s death, even though she wore a seat belt during the Missouri semi-truck accident.
Truck accident victims experience a high amount of stress during and after a Missouri truck accident. In the past, some truck accident victims suffer physical symptoms as a result of the stress. Truck accident victims may experience high levels of anxiety and disrupted sleep patterns. Some truck accident victims report their hair falling out as a result of the accident. The stress caused by the truck accident may make the victim wary of filing a Missouri truck accident lawsuit because lawsuits are known for being high-stress situations.
Missouri truck accident mediation may be a good route for truck accident victims who want to avoid the time and expense associated with a trial. Mediation is a dispute resolution process in which two sides to a disagreement attempt to resolve their issues with the help of a mediator. A mediator is a third party who helps both sides communicate and come to a settlement.
In a typical traffic accident mediation, the attorneys for both sides give opening statements detailing their clients’ perspective. After the opening statements, the mediator may caucus with each party. A mediator caucus gives the mediator an opportunity to speak confidentially with one side outside of the other side’s presence. The mediator may hold a caucus with each party, then go back and forth between the parties until the parties reach a mutually agreeable settlement.
Mediation may be a good choice for truck accident victims. The defendant trucking company has a strong interest in avoiding litigation. The discovery process in a trial may reveal facts that reflect poorly on their operations. A trucking company may be willing to negotiate a good settlement in mediation to avoid a jury trial. However, truck accident victims should not go into a mediation unprepared. Truck accident victims should make sure to consult a Missouri plaintiff lawyer before the mediation process begins.
