Truck Accident Lawyer in Olathe

Kansas Truck Accident Statistics

Of the tens of thousands of vehicle accidents that occurred in Kansas in 2008, more than 3,700 involved large and heavy trucks as reported by KDOT. When an 18-wheeler is involved in an accident, the damage and injuries involved are likely to be much more severe. An average big rig weighs as much as 40 tons –that's 80,000 pounds – which is enough to crush a smaller vehicle should the accident occur at high speeds. If you have been injured in a truck accident, speak with a Olathe personal injury attorney right away to discuss your options and to find out how you could fight for compensation.

Fighting the Trucking Companies for Compensation

When a truck jackknifes or collides with another vehicle, the damage can be catastrophic. Multi-vehicle pileups are common in such situations since 18-wheelers are long enough to block multiple lanes. In some cases, a fire may even break out and cause severe burns or wrongful death. Broken bones, brain injury and spinal cord injuries are possible, as well, all of which will require expensive medical treatment, so contact a personal injury attorney right away to determine what types of compensation you may be entitled to when filing a claim.
