Truck Driver Injury Attorney Serving Kansas City, St. Louis and Throughout Missouri

The Roberts Law Firm P.C. provides legal counsel to truck drivers who are injured in a truck accident or are making a workers’ compensation claim for injuries. Many truck drivers say that it is not a question of if a truck driver is going to be injured doing his job but a matter of when he is going to suffer an injury. Many truck and tractor trailer accidents occur in Missouri along Highway 70 involving truckers driving to Iowa, Illinois and Kansas and throughout the Midwest.

Representing Truck Drivers

Many truck drivers live or spend much of their time outside of Missouri but were injured in Missouri or drive a tractor trailer for a Missouri-based company. Roberts provides injured truck and tractor trailer drivers with aggressive legal representation in seeking to obtain full compensation in the form of money damages for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering and disability benefits. Roberts is keenly aware of the often significant lost wages and lost revenue claims that result when a truck driver is unable to continue driving his truck route. Roberts works to obtain maximum compensation for truck drivers under the law and force the insurance companies to pay out the necessary settlements or aggressively move the case to trial for determination by a judge or jury.

Common Legal Issues in Truck Accidents

Roberts is experienced in transportation law issues and in addressing legal issues involving the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, independent contractor, independent owner-operator and Workers’ Compensation legal issues that commonly arise in truck driver accident cases. Because trucking companies often attempt to claim truck drivers as independent contractors there are legal issues that need to be addressed as to whether the truck driver should be considered an employee of the trucking company. Roberts has legal expertise in evaluating whether a truck driver should be truly considered an employee of the trucking company or an independent contractor.

If necessary, Roberts and his legal team will ensure a full investigation into the possible causes of a truck or tractor trailer accident and make appropriate determinations of liability. Roberts, when appropriate, reviews questions following an accident related to truck driver work hours and any potential safety and maintenance issues that may have led to a truck crash.

Roberts provides legal assistance and counsel to truck drivers who are making claims against another driver, an insurance company, Workers’ Compensation claim or improper maintenance claim. The firm has experience and the ability of handling on behalf of truck drivers and injured parties back and spinal cord injuries including bulging, herniated and ruptured disc claims. The firm handles:

  • eye and vision claims
  • head injury
  • broken bone, arm, shoulder, leg and knee claims and
  • depression-based claims following a truck accident
