Truck Accidents

Missouri Truck Accident Attorneys

Due to the size and weight of large commercial trucks, most collisions with small vehicles result in serious injuries or fatalities. These trucks are insured by commercial policies and require a different legal approach than you would use on a typical auto accident.

What To Do After A Truck Accident

If you were involved in a collision with a semi-truck, dump truck, large van or some other kind of big truck, obtaining the following information will help you protect your right to fair compensation:

  • A copy of the police report and the police report number
  • The Department of Transportation (DOT) license number for the truck
  • Any names or identification on the cab or trailer
  • Driver information, including license and insurance information
  • A diagram of the scene, including the location and length of any skid marks
  • Photographs of the scene (if possible)
  • The names and contact information of any witnesses
