According to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MDOT) commercial motor vehicles (CMV’s) make up approximately 20 percent of all traffic on Missouri interstates. CMVs were involved in 9.1 percent of all traffic crashes, 14.2 percent of fatal traffic crashes, and 8.0 percent of serious injury crashes in Missouri between 2014 and 2018. Sadly, the numbers of people killed in accidents involving commercial trucks have only increased since then. Our attorneys have successfully pursued a number of trucking cases on behalf of injured victims and those who have lost loved ones in truck related collisions.
If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident involving a truck or other commercial vehicle, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer immediately. The trucking companies will have field representatives on the scene, sometimes even while paramedics are still working with injured victims. They may attempt to steer law enforcement away from evidence, such as drivers’ logs and electronic control modules (ECMs) that might be helpful to an injury case. ECMs record such data as the speed of the truck, whether and how brakes were applied, engine RPMs and gear shifting. It is important for your trucking accident lawyer in Kansas City to have access to this information in order to pursue your injury or wrongful death case.
Federal safety regulations govern trucking companies and their drivers. Truck drivers are not always at fault in these types of accidents, but those who are need to be held accountable. At Northland Injury Law, our team of trial attorneys will vigorously pursue compensation for death or injury. We will not stop working on your case until we have recovered all of the compensation to which you are entitled under the law.
