Why You Need St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyer in Multi-Vehicle Accidents

Earlier this week a fatal multi-vehicle accident in north St. Louis closed I-270 in both directions. As traffic stacked up and stopped in the right lane if I-270 at the Riverview exit, a car stopped behind a tanker truck was trapped when another car slammed into it from the rear. The driver of the trapped car died at the scene.

Multiple-vehicle car and truck accidents  can present a confusing jumble of fault and liability that can be difficult to unravel without the help of a St. Louis personal injury attorney. When multiple insurance companies are involved, each will naturally focus on minimizing the liability and expenses of the individual, business or trucking firm it represents. Injured parties and their families may be pressured to accept insurance settlements while they are still recovering from their accident injuries or are grieving the death of a loved one.

When the body is pummeled in a multi-vehicle accident, it can take time to ascertain the full extent of injuries and the length of time and cost of medical care necessary to achieve recovery. St. Louis accident victims that settle too soon may not receive the full compensation to which they may be entitled.  A St. Louis personal injury attorney can aggressively represent your interests in negotiations with insurance companies.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a multi-vehicle accident, contact the experienced St. Louis personal injury attorneys at Hoffman & Gelfman for a free consultation.
