Truck accidents, as all vehicle related personal injury accidents, typically arise as a result of operator error, or equipment malfunction. Unfortunately, minor human error and inattention can result in as catastrophic consequences as operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Texting and cell phone use while driving has become a major contributor to the number of accidents simply due to the tendency to distract the driver from the task at hand. Some of the drivers are professionals, like truckers, or employees during the course of their employment that simply put many miles on the road and are tired or distracted just long enough to result in a life changing accident. Fortunately vehicles in Missouri are required to have insurance, and companies typically have larger policy limits. An added difficulty to these cases is the tendency to see the evidence (vehicles, gouge marks, skid marks, vehicle location, etc…) moved or compromised rather quickly in an effort to make the road safe for other travelers.
