Snow Storm Causes Truck Accidents
Last night’s snowstorm turned St. Louis roads slick and slippery, resulting in numerous St. Louis personal injury auto accidents and two traffic fatalities. Fender-benders, cars sliding off the roadway, truck accidents, and frightening spinouts were reported across the city as 4 inches of snow accumulated on St. Louis roadways, nearly doubling the season’s total snowfall.
Slick and snowy roads were blamed for two St. Louis traffic fatalities yesterday. A 44-year-old Missouri woman died in a St. Louis automobile accident Monday morning when a Ford Explorer crossed the Highway 79 centerline near Westhoff Road and collided with her car. A 57-year-old man died in a St. Louis truck accident when a merging car struck his truck on I-64 at Lake Saint Louis Boulevard, causing it to slide into a bridge pillar.
When St. Louis traffic accidents result in personal injuries, insurance companies typically press accident victims for an early settlement. If you are involved in a car or truck accident, it is important to remember that insurance companies are looking out for their own interests, not yours. Accident victims are often offered insurance settlements that fail to fully compensate them for their losses, which may include medical bills, lost wages, property damage and pain and suffering endured as a result of an accident. The experienced Missouri truck accident attorneys at Hoffman and Gelfman can ensure that you receive full compensation for your accident injuries.
