Kansas City's Truck Accident Injury Lawyer

Sometimes a truck accident is just that – an accident that is no one’s fault. Yet unfortunately, many truck accidents are the result of careless driving and result in injuries that could and should have been avoided.

In 2010 alone, more than 140,000 accident injuries occurred due to truck accidents, and over one third of those injured in a truck accident suffered catastrophic injury.

What to do if you are Involved in an Auto Accident.

You can protect yourself and your rights with these four steps:

  1. Report the accident: Obtain prompt emergency care for yourself or any other injured parties by dialing 9-1-1. Report the truck accident and make sure to make note of any injuries that may have occurred. If emergency care is not necessary, call the police and file an accident report.
  2. Gather info: Gather information at the scene of the truck accident. Exchange information with all parties involved (i.e. driver’s license information, license plates, insurance information, etc.). Be sure to note the names and telephone numbers of any witnesses. If possible, take photos of your vehicle, the other driver’s vehicle, and the scene of the accident.
  3. Seek medical treatment: If you did not seek emergency treatment at the scene, get checked out by your doctor or local hospital. Many times latent injuries do not show symptoms immediately after the truck accident.
  4. Call a truck accident attorney: Do not give statements to any insurance company representatives prior to speaking with an auto accident attorney. Any information you give an insurance company can be detrimental to your case.

Passing a semi-truck on the highway or interstate can be an unnerving experience, especially when the thought of being involved in an accident races through your head. Unfortunately that anxiety is felt for good reason, as semi-truck accidents and tractor trailer accidents often result in violent collisions and serious injuries.

While they may seem like similar occurrences, truck accidents are very different from car accidents due to another set of laws that govern truck driving and the trucking business. Unfortunately, not every lawyer knows how to properly proceed with a claim against a trucking business. We are experienced in litigating truck accidents – knowing the many laws and regulations that govern the trucking business, as well as the logs and records trucking companies are required to keep. Knowing how to gain access to these records and utilize them effectively can be the difference between success and failure when litigating truck accident claims.
