James Admire, 47, was seriously injured after his car collided with a tractor-trailer on Highway 54 in Callaway County.
The initial report on this Missouri tractor-trailer accident says that Admire was heading southbound on the highway in a 2009 Mercury at the time of the crash. As he approached Old Highway 54, a 2003 International tractor-trailer, driven by Jesse Bish, 37, entered the highway in front of Admire. Admire’s car then slammed into the back of the tractor-trailer unit.
Admire was taken to University Hospital for emergency treatment of serious personal injuries. He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
Bish did not sustain any injuries.
Generally in rear-end collision cases, negligence is assumed on the part of the at-fault driver since every driver should be in control of where their vehicle is heading. Some more information needs to be investigated with regard to this incident, however, like the speeds of the two vehicles.
Since every case is unique, it is important to get the advice of a legal professional with lots of experience. If you have questions about how to handle an accident, you should contact a Missouri personal injury lawyer for a consultation. Most will charge nothing for this initial meeting where you can discuss your case and determine the best course of action for you and your family.
