No Matter The Cause Of Your Accident, You Can Trust Us To Help You

From being rear-ended to multicar pile-ups, car accidents can take many forms, all with the potential to cause serious injuries. When the crash involves a large vehicle, such as a semi truck, the consequences can be even more devastating.

Most commonly, car accidents fall into several categories, including:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on crashes
  • Side-impact or T-bone accidents
  • Multiple vehicle pile-ups
  • Hit-and-run accidents

Understanding the cause of the accident and identifying the at-fault parties is key to building a strong case. From distracted driving and speeding to driving under the influence or poor road conditions, we will investigate the factors that led to your accident to establish liability. With our thorough approach, we aim to ensure that we hold the at-fault party responsible for your suffering.

Truck Accidents Around Kansas City

Kansas City is surrounded by numerous major highways, including I-29, I-35, I-66, I-70, I-435, I-470, I-635, and I-670. Commercial vehicles are everywhere, and so is the danger of a truck accident.

Because of their size and weight, trucks can cause more damage than smaller vehicles, like passenger cars and SUVs. The contents of a truck may also pose a serious threat, such as combustible liquids and gasses. We want to help seriously injured victims recover compensation for their lost wages, medical bills, trauma and losses.

Causes of Truck Accidents

When a truck driver makes an error, it can have catastrophic effects. This is why truck drivers must follow traffic safety laws and regulations. There are several ways a truck accident happens:

  • Inexperience: Trucks require extensive training and experience to operate. Newer, younger drivers may not have the same experience and training as older drivers.
  • Speeding: A driver may speed to meet deadlines, but it makes it harder to slow a truck down to a stop and react to unexpected situations.
  • Shifted loads: A poorly structured cargo can suddenly shift, falling into the road or sending the truck into a rollover.
  • Substance abuse: A driver may also drink and drive or rely on illicit drugs to keep going, which can lead to recklessness, poor judgment and impaired vision.
  • Distracted driving: When a driver looks at their phone, eats and drinks or does anything other than focus on the road, then they are distracted, which increases the likelihood of trucking accidents.
  • Mechanical failures: Sometimes an accident happens due to mechanical breakdowns, like malfunctioning brakes or blown tires. This can be related to shoddy repair jobs or defective parts.

In many cases, a combination of mistakes will contribute to a truck accident.

Holding Those Responsible For Truck Accidents

At DLM LAW LLC, our truck accident lawyers look carefully to determine who may be held responsible for the wreck. Those parties responsible could be the truck driver, the truck driver’s employer, the shipping company that loaded the truck, the truck mechanic who failed to make repairs, and more.
