Personal Injury: Semi-Truck Accidents

Offices serving the Kansas City, Springfield, and Joplin areas.

Rarely can an accident involving a tractor-trailer or semi-truck be considered minor. The careless or reckless driving of these immense vehicles on Missouri roadways results in hundreds of tragic deaths and catastrophic injuries each year. These accidents often result from preventable negligence on the part of the truck driver or trucking company, including:

  • Speeding

  • Drugs or Alcohol

  • Driver Fatigue (and false log books)

  • Tailgating

  • Improper Loading

  • Poor Maintenance or Training

  • Lack of Crashworthiness

  • Violations of Federal Regulations

Our firm has experience in handling semi-truck and 18-wheeler accident cases. A truck accident case should not be handled like a regular automobile case. There are hundreds of state and federal regulations governing commercial vehicles. In your truck accident injury lawsuit or settlement, hiring a lawyer who understands all the issues is essential. Contact our truck accident injury lawyers.

It is extremely important that you have an attorney conduct an investigation immediately after a wreck involving an 18-wheeler. The insurance company for the semi truck will send a team of professional investigators to the scene of the accident. It is important that you have your own attorney conduct an investigation and secure all pertinent evidence-including computerized record information, trip permits, log books, and other reports-and perform an independent inspection of the vehicles involved.

You have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury claim or you may lose your ability to recover damages now and in the future. Please see our Deadlines Page for more information on claim time deadlines.
