We Know That Truck Accidents Can Be Devastating. National Statistics show that there are over 15 million trucks in operation in the United States. In its most recent data, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that nearly 300,000 large trucks are involved in traffic accidents annually. Those accidents cause over 3,000 deaths and 74,000 injuries. The vast majority of those injuries are to the passengers of the other vehicle (the car or motorcycle), not the driver of the tractor-trailer. In this case, a Kansas City trucking accident lawyer can legally help you in an accident.
Select A Firm That Is Diligent And Compassionate Towards Your Case
Our Kansas and Missouri truck accident attorneys know that tractor-trailer accidents are not the same as car accidents. Trucks are bigger, heavier and harder to control than cars so the forces and conditions that can affect a truck are different. The laws that regulate trucks and their drivers are more complex. The potential sources of recovery for truck accident victims are different given the ownership of the truck and the goods that were being transported. When large trucks are involved in an accident, serious injuries often result.
In short, truck accident claims can be complicated, but we’re here to guide you through.
Time is Not on Your Side in a Truck Accident Case
It’s always important to get an attorney working on your case as soon as possible. It’s even more important in a truck accident case. Big trucking companies have experts at the scene of serious accident sites within hours to collect information and start building a defense. It’s also not unheard of for trucking companies and drivers to falsify their logbooks or deliberately destroy evidence.
Witnesses need to be interviewed, the vehicles need to be inspected, and the accident scene needs to be documented before the highway is cleared and evidence is destroyed. Without an attorney, you may never gain access to this information.

A Thorough Investigation into All Possible Causes of a Tractor-Trailer Accident
Our tractor-trailer accident lawyers regularly work with experts in a variety of specialties, such as accident reconstruction, truck mechanics, and transportation regulations at the state and federal levels. We know what to do and where to go to prove your case. A truck accident can be caused by a number of factors:
Was the driver tired or fatigued? Had he been on the road longer than allowed?
Was the driver distracted or on the phone?
Had the driver been using drugs or alcohol?
Had the truck been properly maintained and inspected?
Were there safety problems with the truck or its cargo?
Did the trucking company perform a thorough background check for its driver?
Were there defective parts on the truck?
Was the truck driver properly trained?
The Injuries Can Last a Lifetime
When a tractor-trailer hits a car, the results can be devastating. We have represented families in wrongful death claims related to truck accidents. We have also represented individuals with serious personal injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, fractures, and organ damage. We know the stress you’re under and can work to get you peace of mind.
