Our client was driving a tractor-trailer on a two lane state highway in Perry County, Missouri when an oncoming semi-truck pulling an empty box trailer was blown over by extremely high winds in the area and crashed head-on into our client.  We made a claim for negligence and ultimately filed suit against the at-fault driver and his trucking company employer for his failure to pull over and wait for the high wind conditions in the area to abate. The truck crash caused catastrophic damage to both 18 wheelers and the trailers they were pulling. Additionally, the crash caused significant injuries to our client that were life-changing. As a result of the collision, our client sustained a punctured lung, a mild traumatic brain injury, a fractured scapula, multiple fractured ribs, and injuries to his neck and shoulder. Our client underwent a shoulder surgery and numerous pain injections following the crash, and his ability to work as a truck driver was permanently compromised.
