We Know the Opposition

Trucking companies and their insurance providers have teams of investigators on call every hour of the day, ready to confront truck accident victims when they are the most vulnerable. These investigators have one job: to reduce the amount of money the insurance company has to pay you for the accident.Kansas Attorneys Richard James, Cody Claassen and Dustin DeVaughn

Trucking Accidents Can Present Many Challenges - Let Us Fight for Your Rights!

Heavy vehicles demand extra attention and precautions from other automobiles sharing the same road. However, despite all the driver training and adhering to road rules, accidents still occur.

Often, big truck accidents are caused by the truck driver’s negligence resulting in injury and damage to another person or their property.  The important thing to remember is that the reason behind the crash is of lower significance as compared to protecting your rights and determining the best way forward.

No matter what the nature of the accident was, you probably would have incurred heavy expenses due to your injuries and vehicle losses.

It may be imperative to initiate a lawsuit so you can demand compensation for your losses. This can save you and your family from financial troubles down the lane. However, filing a lawsuit requires careful planning and forethought. A semi-truck accident lawyer in Kansas can help you prepare and present your case to maximizes your recovery.

Trucking Case Results

$750,000 - Tractor Trailer Collision

This was a severe tractor trailer collision involving a fatality of an individual who was helping support family. We were able to establish the driver of the semi-truck was in violation of DOT regulations with respect to the number of hours he had been operating the tractor trailer prior to the collision and had falsified his driving logs attempting to conceal the same.

$150,000 - Semi-truck Wreck

Our client was struck by a semi-truck who attempted to make an improper left turn from the right lane when our client was legally in the left turn lane. The semi-truck dragged our client’s vehicle 20 feet under the trailer before our client’s vehicle became dislodged. Our client suffered a herniated disc in her neck which required surgery and required treatment for five months.

$115,000 - 18 Wheeler Crash

Rear-end collision involving a semi-truck that was not paying attention. Our client was blessed to not be severely injured in this collision. The insurance company tripled their pre-suit offer the week after we filed a lawsuit in Federal Court.
