Many truck accidents are the result of negligence on the part of the truck driver or the trucking company itself. If you or a loved one has been injured due to trucking negligence, one of our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you understand your right to be compensated and how to obtain justice for such negligence.
At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we help people throughout Kansas and Missouri who have been injured in accidents involving 18-wheelers, semi trucks and other large trucks. We have a proven track record of success winning fair settlements and jury awards for people who have been seriously injured or have lost a family member due to someone else’s negligence.
Discovering and Proving the Cause of Your Truck Accident
In pursuing a truck accident injury case, it is important to determine who was at fault — the truck driver, the trucking company, the company that loaded the truck or another party. If your accident was the result of trucking negligence, you may be able to obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other hardships you face now and will face in the future.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Inadequate training of drivers
- Poor maintenance
- Overloaded trucks and unsecured loads
- Faulty brakes and negligent brake repair
- Truck driver fatigue
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Drug and alcohol abuse by truck drivers
- Inadequate lighting
Our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of your truck accident. In truck accidents, there are many potentially liable parties, and in many cases, numerous parties share responsibility for the accident. Recovering the full and fair compensation you deserve will require extensive legal work and negotiations (and possibly litigation) potentially with multiple parties, but it will be worth it in the end.
While your case is pending, we will help you manage recovery and medical costs effectively. You have options we can help you access.
We will work with you personally throughout the legal process. Whether an accident involves truck driver errors, negligent corporate policies or other factors, our priority is helping you locate all sources of compensation and obtain maximum compensation for your losses.
