Trucking Wrongful Death Attorneys — Serving Missouri Families Statewide

Wrongful death is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another person. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's 2004 data, 5,190 people died that year (12 percent of all the traffic fatalities reported) in trucking accidents. Among those killed, 77 percent were occupants of another vehicle, and 8 percent were non-occupants. If you have lost a family member in a trucking accident, contact Terrell Law Office, LLC — serving Jefferson City, Columbia, and victims throughout Missouri. Our wrongful death attorneys have experience in wrongful death lawsuits and making sure that justice is achieved for surviving family members. Wrongful death lawsuits based on accidents involving trucks, semi-tractor trailers, and 18-wheelers involve a complicated canon of laws and require a large amount of evidence. Because the trucking industry is heavily regulated, a truck accident is significantly more complex than an automobile accident case. If you are a resident of Missouri and have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit, our attorneys will provide the expertise, experience, and dedication you need to achieve the optimal outcome to your case.
