St. Louis Trailer Crash Attorney
Recreational vehicles are a wonderful means of getting the family together to enjoy a long trip. Utility trailers are a great way to move household goods, ATVs, motorcycles and snowmobiles. What do these have in common? Missouri drivers are not required to take special training or hold a special license to hook one to the back of their car and drive at highway speeds on state roads and federal interstate highways. Furthermore, there are very few traffic laws governing cargo tie downs, brake systems and hookup requirements. When a load is unbalanced or too heavy, an inexperienced driver has little chance of maintaining control in an emergency situation at high speeds.
If you were injured, or lost a loved one in an accident caused by a negligent driver pulling a recreational vehicle or utility trailer in Missouri, the attorneys at Bley & Evans, LC, in Columbia are ready to fight to help you recover the money damages you are entitled for your injuries and losses. We have an impressive record of some of the most significant settlements and verdicts in the state in claims involving motor vehicle accidents.
