The Missouri Department of Transportation (MDOT) states that “Commercial motor vehicles make up approximately 20 percent of all traffic on Missouri interstates. Between 2014 and 2018, 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.” The number of people killed in accidents involving commercial trucks has increased since that time. 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 act quickly. The trucking companies have field representatives who will be on the scene of an accident, sometimes even while paramedics are trying to help those who have been injured. 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. There are multiple federal safety regulations that govern trucking companies and their drivers. Although truck drivers are not always at fault in these types of accidents, those who are at fault in an accident need to be held accountable.
