It is absolutely crucial that anyone involved in a truck accident in the state of Kansas seeks appropriately aggressive representation from an experienced Kansas truck accident lawyer. Accidents and injuries involving trucks and other commercial vehicles on interstate 70 (I-70); interstate 35 (I-35); the Kansas Turnpike; Highway 50; Highway 54; K-96; K-254 and the other Kansas highways can be some of the most destructive and severe accidents on our roadways. Due to the size and weight of commercial vehicles, trucks and other big rigs present a particularly hazardous threat when operated negligently and/or maintained inappropriately. Large vehicles often are involved in multi-car accidents, which can make liability difficult and accident reconstruction problematic.
