St. Louis Truck Accident Attorneys

St. Louis Truck Accident AttorneysThe experienced St. Louis truck accident attorneys at Hoffman & Gelfman are dedicated to getting fair compensation to people injured in 18-wheeler accidents in St. Louis and throughout the state of Missouri.  People injured in accidents involving large trucks are likely to suffer serious injuries that require surgery, rehabilitative therapy, and in-home nursing care for weeks or even months after the accident. If you or someone you love has been injured in a large truck accident, you deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and property damage that stemmed from the accident.

The knowledgeable attorneys at Hoffman & Gelfman have years of experience representing clients who are seriously injured in accidents involving large trucks. Tractor trailers can weigh over 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, creating an extremely dangerous situation when truck accidents involve smaller passenger vehicles. Drivers and passengers of cars, pickup trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles involved in large truck accidents often suffer catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injury, brain injury, and burn injuries, while the truck driver walks away from the accident virtually unscathed. When the accident is caused by the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company, they should be held responsible for your injuries. Truck accidents may be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Negligent truck maintenance
  • Overloading or shifting loads
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failure to comply with safety regulations
  • Debris or obstructions in the roadway
  • Weather
