As demand rises for the delivery of consumer goods and the trucking industry continues to grow, more and more large trucks are sharing the highways with passenger and family vehicles. Although most truck drivers and trucking companies follow federal trucking laws and exercise due caution on the road, the few who do not can cause serious accidents. The truck accident lawyer team at Bottaro, Kubin & Yocum, P.C. serving Kansas City, Overland Park, and the surrounding areas, believes that negligent truck drivers and trucking companies should be held accountable for their actions. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate all of our truck and semi-truck accident cases and have a record of achieving favorable settlements for victims and their families.

Truck Accident Investigation & Reconstruction

Because truck drivers are paid by the mile, they often feel the pressure to keep driving past the point of exhaustion. Doing so may lead to unsafe driving decisions that endanger the lives of truck drivers and everyone they come across on the road. If it is discovered that a truck driver or his or her supervisors acted negligently by violating the federal rule concerning hours of service, all parties can be held liable for any injuries or deaths that occur as a result. Other common causes of car and truck accidents include poor truck maintenance, vehicle defects, and dangerous weather conditions.

In most collisions, the insurance carrier covering the semi-truck company will send its team to the scene of the truck accident immediately to investigate. Because this team has a vested interest in protecting the trucking company, the claims of the passenger vehicle’s driver are not always represented fairly. Our truck accident lawyer team in Kansas City, Overland Park, and the surrounding areas will conduct their own investigation of your accident to ensure that your interests and rights are represented.
