Kansas City Truck Accident Attorney

You are not the only one who gets a bit nervous when driving around large trucks on the roadway. We think that is natural, even though the vast majority of these vehicles are safe. However, we know that truck crashes do happen and you need to know where to turn if they do.

At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, we will be by your side when you need a Kansas City truck accident attorney. We know how complicated these cases can be, but we will work with all parties involved in order to secure the compensation you deserve.

The Statistics

When we talk about truck crashes, we want you to understand that there are various types of trucks to consider:

Anything larger than a typical pickup truck can cause extreme damage in the event of a crash. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in the aftermath of a truck accident:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Each of these injuries requires immediate medical care and some of them will require extensive and long-term care. In the worst-case scenario, a truck crash victim will be permanently disabled.

For the latest reporting year in Missouri, we know that there were thousands of injuries as a result of large truck accidents.

How These Incidents Happen

One of the main causes of truck crashes is vehicle failure. Truck companies and owners have a major responsibility to everyone on the roadway. They must regularly inspect and maintain each vehicle to ensure they are safe each time they go out. We commonly see crashes as a result of one of the following systems failing:

  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Tires/wheels
  • Lighting
  • Connective equipment
  • Powertrain

Truck drivers must all have their commercial driver’s licenses and should never:

  • Drive while impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Driver while distracted by phones, other devices, or people
  • Speed or operate recklessly

Truck drivers must follow all state and federal laws and regulations regarding the safe operation of large trucks. This includes never carrying more weight than legally allowed and ensuring they never drive over the number of hours allowed in a 24-hour period.

After A Truck Crash

Getting into a crash with a large commercial truck is scary and can leave you wondering where to turn if you have sustained injuries. At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, we want you to know that we will be by your side every step of the way.

  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
