Semi-Truck Crash in St. Louis Blocks Traffic

Semi-truck drivers are some of the most hardworking individuals on the road. They often have to travel long distances to deliver or pick up their loads, but it must be said that they don’t always obey the rules of the road.

According to a recent article on the Fox2Now St. Louis website, a recent tractor trailer accident on I-55 left a lot of unanswered questions. The tractor trailer was traveling northbound when, for some reason, the semi-truck overturned, blocking off most of the lanes of traffic. A lot of the details of the crash were not clear based on the article, but it does state that there were several vehicles involved in the accident and many people were injured.

It’s not unusual for people to be unaware of their rights when they’re involved in an accident with a semi-truck. For example, there are often two law suits that can be filed. One against the driver and one against the trucking company. Professional drivers have to follow different rules than other drivers, and talking with a St. Louis truck accident attorney can help you understand your rights if you’re involved in a similar accident in St. Louis.

Please contact a St. Louis truck accident attorney if you or someone you love is in need of legal advice regarding a semi-truck crash. We’ll help you know how you should proceed, and work hard to get you compensated.
