An 18-year-old from Cape Girardeau was injured in a Missouri rear end truck accident on June 6, 2011 at 1:47pm. The Missouri truck accident occurred on Route AB at County Road 303 in Scott County, Missouri.
Teenager Spencer J. Burrows of Cape Girardeau slowed a 1997 Jeep to make a left turn. Truck driver Brandan T. Hall of Cairo, Illinois failed to stop a 1996 Freightliner before slamming into the rear of Burrows’ Jeep. The Jeep was totaled while the tractor trailer sustained only moderate damage. Burrows was taken to Southeast Hospital by ambulance for the treatment of the moderate injuries he sustained during the Missouri rear end truck accident.
Missouri tort law allows accident victims to recover for injuries sustained in an accident. Accident victims may obtain compensation for harm resulting from the accident, including but not limited to: medical expenses, diminished earning capacity, loss of wages, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering.
Award damages in truck accident cases may amount to millions of dollars. Missouri rear end truck accident lawsuits often have large award damages because truck accidents place a tremendous financial burden on accident victims. As a result, trucking companies and insurers will attempt to place as much blame as possible on the accident victim. For example, if an accident victim denies onsite medical treatment but discovers injuries later, the trucking insurance company will argue that the injuries were not caused by the accident. Insurance companies make that argument even when the accident victim suffers from an injury with delayed symptoms, like traumatic brain injury.
Trucking companies and their insurers are skilled in limiting their liability for the injuries of accident victims. Conversely, truck accident victims are often unfamiliar with the litigation process. Truck accident victims should contact an experienced accident lawyer with a proven record in winning compensation for truck accident victims. Make sure to obtain skilled legal representation before signing any documents provided by the insurer or the trucking company.
