Truck Accidents: Common And Highly Injurious
The sheer size and weight of semi trucks increase the likelihood that drivers of smaller vehicles will suffer catastrophic injuries or death in the event of a truck accident. And because the Kansas City metro area is a major crossroads for interstate trucking routes, drivers are at even greater risk here than they would be elsewhere in the country.
Truck crashes are an all-too-common phenomenon. While they are sometimes caused by drivers of personal-use vehicles, truck drivers and trucking companies are often at fault. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Drowsy and fatigued truck drivers who fall asleep at the wheel
- Trucks with maintenance issues like faulty brakes that haven’t been repaired
- Improperly secured cargo and unbalanced loads
- Cargo loads that are too heavy for safe travel
- Trucking companies that distract their own drivers by making them respond to phone calls and radio dispatches regardless of driving circumstances
If you’ve been seriously injured or a loved one was killed in a truck accident, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as reasonably possible. Trucking companies are backed by high-value commercial insurance policies, and both companies and insurers will aggressively try to control the crash investigation and the narrative surrounding it. Our attorney, Scott Waddell, is not afraid to take on these well-funded defendants and will fight just as hard to help you claim the compensation you need and deserve.
