Kansas City Semi Truck Crash Lawyers
The size and weight of 18-wheelers (also known as tractor-trailers or semis) virtually ensure severe injury or fatalities when involved in accidents with smaller vehicles. But both state and federal laws add complexities to these cases. Each trucking accident lawyer at White, Graham, Buckley & Carr, L.L.C. has a detailed knowledge of all laws and the operation of the trucking industry in Eastern Jackson County and the Kansas City metropolitan area. Our knowledgeable lawyers help ensure the protection of the rights of our clients, even when going against powerful trucking company legal teams.
Special considerations of tractor-trailer accidents
A Kansas City truck accident lawyer needs to conduct thorough investigations to reveal the causes of each truck accident, which often extend beyond just the failure of the truck driver to follow the rules of the road. Each Independence lawyer at White, Graham, Buckley & Carr, L.L.C. looks for all possible causes, including the following:
- Driver errors, potentially caused by fatigue or lack of training
- Improperly loaded trucks, which can cause cargo to shift in transit, causing trailers to swing and possibly resulting in jackknifes
- Poor truck maintenance, causing drivers to lose control due to blown tires or brake failure
- Trucking company negligence, possibly forcing drivers to take procedural shortcuts in an effort to meet unrealistic delivery deadlines
