Truck Accident Lawyer in Olathe
Kansas Truck Accident Statistics
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

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.
