Independence Truck Accident Lawyer

Independence, Missouri, with a population of about 113,288, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 70, US 435, MO 24 and MO 40, where accidents are waiting to happen. There are few jobs more dangerous than truck driving. The bosses want loads delivered on time, no excuses, and all that time lost in traffic has to be made up somehow... Long hours behind the wheel, company pressure to perform, and sometimes the plain monotony of the road can add up to a very dangerous situation. Although drivers are required to adhere to federal regulations involving time on the road, taking breaks and their loads, shortcuts in driver safety can result in negligence behind the wheel. Under federal and state laws, a trucking company may be held liable for driver negligence occurring in Missouri. A Gordon & Elias truck accident lawyer will vigorously defend an injured client’s rights by holding trucking companies and their drivers accountable for their trucking accidents.
