Semi-Truck Accidents

Real Help for Kansas City Accidents

All car accidents are dangerous, but a commercial vehicle or semi-truck accident tends to be particularly serious for one simple reason: the enormous size of the truck. The size difference between a truck and a car often results in very serious damage, injury, and even death to those involved in the truck accident.

In addition to causing serious injury or death, a semi-truck accident can also require more work to prove liability in the case than a typical car accident. Because semi-trucks typically belong to large companies, the trucking company and its insurance carrier will investigate the accident quickly and will have a lot of money to do so. It is imperative for your case that you take action quickly to make sure that you get what is owed to you.

Why Get Help from a Car Accident Lawyer?

I will investigate the car accident right away and gather evidence to strengthen your case. My experience helps me quickly gather the facts and evidence we need to present your best case. As a former insurance defense lawyer, I also understand how insurance companies operate. This experience is an invaluable tool when conducting negotiations for my clients' compensation.

I can help if you or a family member were involved in a car accident with the following:

  • Semi-truck (18-wheeler, tractor trailer)
  • Garbage truck
  • Delivery truck
  • Other commercial vehicle

Special Considerations for Truck Accidents

Because of their size and potential danger, trucks carry greater liability coverage than non-commercial vehicles. However, trucking companies also have lawyers on speed dial to vigorously protect their interests.

I will work to protect your legal rights, because I believe that a person is more valuable than a company. As a Kansas City truck and car accident lawyer, I understand that generally, truck accidents happen for two reasons:

  • Distracted or negligent drivers (driving over their hours limit, driving drunk)
  • Negligent maintenance (faulty equipment)

By investigating the accident early, I can find the cause of your accident and put together the strongest case for your situation.
