Injured in a Commercial Trucking Accident? We can help.
Metro-East – Southwestern and Southern Illinois – Metro St. Louis – Eastern Missouri
After being injured in an accident with a commercial semi-tractor trailer, it is critical that you get an attorney on your side as soon as possible. Large freight companies are often self-insured and employ their own accident investigators. When notified that one of their trucks was involved in a wreck, they are often at the scene, removing evidence and putting their unique spin on the facts.
