At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we have successfully obtained compensation for numerous clients in truck accident claims in Missouri and Kansas. We independently investigate accident scenes and collaborate with accident reconstruction experts to build a strong case on your behalf. We preserve evidence that may otherwise be lost or destroyed. And, we work quickly and thoroughly to maximize the full and fair value of your case for compensation.
Commercial trucking accident claims are distinct from other auto accident claims due to the increased responsibilities of commercial truckers. Given the size and weight of large commercial trucks, federal trucking laws have been enacted to prevent the high risk of harm presented by such vehicles. Our lawyers have a thorough understanding of trucking laws and regulations that can play a role in truck accident claims.
Truck Driver Errors That May Have Caused Your Accident
We understand how truck driver errors can contribute to accidents. Examples of truck driver errors include:
- Excessive speed
- Driver fatigue (often caused by a failure to take federally mandated rest breaks)
- Aggressive driving
- Truck overloading and weight violations
- Failure to properly secure loads
- Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
- Failure to take proper precautions in adverse weather conditions
