Kansas City Truck Accident Lawyer

Get an Experienced Attorney to Your Truck Accident Scene ASAP

Truck accidents in Kansas and Missouri are far more likely to cause catastrophic injuries than accidents involving traditional smaller vehicles. Due to their size and weight, commercial trucks such as 18-wheelers and tractor-trailer rigs can cause massive damage, including fatal injuries. It is critical to consult with an experienced semi-truck accident lawyer as soon as possible.

Our attorneys are top trial attorneys in Kansas City. We fight aggressively to ensure victims receive the full and fair damages they deserve. We work quickly to preserve evidence, get witness testimony, and build strong cases for trial, allowing our clients to focus on recovery while we manage all legal aspects.

Beyond securing your maximum compensation, your case against the trucking company can help to prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future.

Establishing the Full and Fair Value of Your Semi-Truck Accident Injury Claim

Accidents involving a commercial truck weighing tens of thousands of pounds may result in traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or other injuries that cause permanent disability. Our attorneys will collaborate with medical experts, economists, and life planning experts to establish the value of your past, present, and future damages and losses. We will handle all negotiations with insurance companies and ensure your best interests are protected.

Insurance companies are in business to make money, not to offer claimants a fair settlement. When a truck accident occurs, many trucking companies have defense attorneys retained who will be there on the spot, ready to limit the trucking company’s liability and get victims to admit to things that may not be true. This could potentially result in a victim not being able to secure the full compensation he or she is entitled to.

Call us to get us on the accident scene as quickly as possible. Say nothing to insurance representatives without speaking with us first. We are always available. Call us at 816-400-1000.

Truck Accidents Often Occur Because of Trucking Company Negligence

Truck accidents result in thousands of serious injuries and fatalities each year in the U.S. At Schmitt Law Firm, LLC, we recognize that your case requires extensive understanding of regulations regarding commercial vehicles at both the state and federal level. Independent truckers and trucking companies are required to adhere to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, but many fail to do so, which makes your case more winnable.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Violation of hours of service regulations
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor weather or road conditions
  • Speeding
  • Equipment malfunction

Regardless of the reason, when an accident can be attributed to negligence, those injured may be eligible for compensation of costs related to their injuries. We urge you to contact our office immediately for unmatched legal guidance and representation from an 18-wheeler accident attorney.
