Bold Representation For Clients Injured In Trucking Accidents
While some law firms in Missouri may lump trucking accidents under the general category of motor vehicle collisions, at Holland Injury Law, LLC, we do not. Our firm has 30 years of experience handling injury claims. We have represented more than 100 clients in cases involving serious truck wrecks.
In addition to compensating you for the catastrophic damage to you and your vehicle by a semitruck, a personal injury lawsuit can also put trucking companies on notice to operate their businesses more safely. Our goal is to craft a settlement or trial verdict that is fair and equitable for you, and to help prevent and discourage such accidents in the future.
We strongly advocate for the victims of truck accidents. One of our clients and their children were struck by an 18-wheel commercial truck that blew past the centerline on the highway. The victims sustained serious injuries including a brain injury. We fought and won a $3,250,000 settlement for them.
How Trucking Accidents Are Different Than Other Motor Vehicle Accidents
A collision with a semi differs from an accident with another car, or with a motorcycle. Here are a few of the most significant ways that these crashed are different and how they affect personal injury claims:
- Trucks can cause far more damage in an accident than an ordinary car. A tractor-trailer is far heavier and larger than even the largest SUV or pickup. It can cause catastrophic injuries to motorists in cars.
- The trucking industry is governed by federal regulations, which may have been violated in your accident. Truckers must abide by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Frequently, personal injuries result when a driver has violated regulations related to hours of operation, speeding, equipment failure or other critical areas.
- Drivers employed by trucking companies may have powerful legal teams on their side. This may include the very best insurance company lawyers, as well as an in-house team of experts bent on blaming you for the truck crash.

We seek to represent your interests aggressively so that you recover the funds you need to heal and move on with your life.
