Experienced Missouri Injury Attorneys Represent Trucking Accident Victims
Established law firm seeks fair compensation for clients injured in the Clinton area
Because trucks are so much heavier and larger than cars, accidents involving them are much more likely to cause debilitating injuries and death to motorists. At Cason Edgett Mahan Lutjen and Haddock, we represent truck accident victims in the Clinton area and throughout Missouri. Though no amount of money can erase the pain from a truck accident injury, our skilled attorneys can advocate for your right to receive fair compensation from the trucker or company employing him. We use targeted strategies to obtain damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress and pain and suffering. If you have suffered the devastating loss of a family member in a trucking accident, we can file a wrongful death suit on your behalf.
Hardworking Missouri attorneys hold negligent truck drivers and companies accountable
Truck accidents are tragic events that could often be avoided if truck drivers and the companies that employ them followed the federal regulations designed to improve truck safety. If the driver of a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler or other large commercial vehicle caused your accident, the attorneys at Cason Edgett Mahan Lutjen and Haddock can help you pursue justice and compensation. We take on cases involving:
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving behavior
- Unsafe driving conditions, such as snow, ice, rain or fog
- Unlicensed or untrained drivers
- Truck rollovers and jackknifes
- Oversized trucks
- Overloaded trucks
- Tire blowouts
- Brake failure
- Poor truck maintenance
- Mechanical defects
The attorneys at Cason Edgett Mahan Lutjen and Haddock represent individuals injured in all types of commercial vehicle accidents. We employ effective negotiation techniques and courtroom strategies to pursue the best possible outcome.
Strategic lawyers build and present solid cases for plaintiffs
After a truck accident, trucking company personnel quickly converge on the scene to gather evidence for their defense. We match the immediacy of their response. During our investigation, we will try to preserve crucial evidence, take witness statements and photograph the scene to record skid marks and vehicle positioning.
We then employ a practical, professional approach in our effort to obtain compensation for your losses. When preparing for negotiations or trial, our attorneys consult qualified experts who understand the impact of trucking accidents. In court, these professionals — such as trauma doctors, chiropractors, accident reconstruction analysts, and mechanics — can offer compelling testimony about your accident and resulting injuries. The attorneys at Cason Edgett Mahan Lutjen and Haddock will use all available means to present a strong case on your behalf.
