Not only are trucking accidents different from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, or other motor vehicle accidents in that they typically inflict more damage, but trucking accidents have a completely different legal dynamic.
Whereas an auto accident claim may only include the drivers involved in the accident, a trucking accident will involve the truck driver, the trucking company that hired the truck driver, and the insurance company that represents both trucking company and the trucker.

It is easy to be overwhelmed after a trucking accident due to the injuries you may have sustained. Going up against very powerful and very influential entities can cause some people to abandon hope. If you have been in a trucking accident, do not wait to take legal action! It may seem as though your case has no merit, but with the right legal representation, a trucking accident attorney can represent you to the fullest extent of the law because it is your right!

Truck Injuries & Fatalities

Being involved in a trucking accident is unlike a car accident. While both types of incidents can yield tragic results, any accident involving a semi-truck or 18-wheeler has the potential to be devastating. No matter how you look at it, regular motor vehicles will always be on the losing side of a truck collision due to a tractor-trailer’s sheer size and weight. In fact, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation, 15.5% of all fatal accidents in 2010 were caused by semi-trucks and their drivers.

Many trucking accidents are caused by speeding or distracted driving, and even more are commonly caused by trucker fatigue or negligence. Factor these causes in with the fact that 18-wheelers do not maneuver or stop as easily as a car, and it is no wonder that trucking accidents are among the most deadly causes of personal injury accidents on Kansas’ highways and roads. If you or a loved one was harmed in a trucking accident, it is imperative that you speak with a personal injury lawyer immediately.
