Truck Accidents Caused by Backing Out

Tractor Trailer Collision Attorneys - St. Louis, Missouri

Many truck accidents are caused when truck drivers back out of a parking space, driveway or lot and fail to yield or see other vehicles or pedestrians. Injuries are often very serious, including head, brain trauma and spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries have devastating consequences and take years of rehabilitation and care. If you or a loved one was injured due to a truck backing-out accident, seek experienced legal representation as soon as possible.

The longer you wait, the less likely evidence can be preserved. This is critical because your attorney will want to have as much evidence as possible for your case in order to obtain all necessary experts. This includes accident reconstructionists and medical experts. At Ripplinger & Zimmer, L.L.C., our experienced attorneys have been helping truck accident victims since 1970. We truly understand the nature of truck accident cases, what experts to hire and how to argue your case effectively.

Rear-End Car Collisions and Backing-Out Accidents

When truck drivers are careless, fail to look out for oncoming traffic or have overloaded trucks, they can cause serious backing-out accidents. Furthermore, if truck drivers get distracted, such as texting or talking on their cellphone, this can cause rear-end collisions as well. The results of these types of truck accidents are serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck backing-out or rear-end collision, we can seek compensation for you including:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Emotional damages
  • Rehabilitation therapy costs
  • Pain and suffering
