Who is to blame for trucking accidents?

It is a wonder that trucking accidents happen as seldom as they do, considering the status Missouri holds as a crossroads of America. Sustaining injury— or worse— from a truck accident makes you more than unlucky. It makes you a victim of a troubling upward trend of motor vehicle accidents. However, even if you might easily identify yourself as the injured party, the question remains as to who is at fault.

Typically, the indicators they look for are all plainly visible, such as unexplained bruises or scars, or sudden changes in their family members or friends' moods. However, there is another form of mistreatment going on in nursing homes that leaves no scars: financial abuse.
