Kansas Semi Accident Attorneys
Truck accidents can be more severe than other motor vehicle accidents because of their size and speed. Commonly, more serious injuries are suffered through this type of accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another driver, do not hesitate to contact our Pittsburg truck accident attorneys.
At The Spigarelli Law Firm, we understand that commercial trucking has a more complex set of laws and regulations that only pertain to that profession. Their drivers are held to a higher standard than average drivers on the road. Even with all their training and regulation, semi truck drivers still cause accidents.
The Spigarelli Law Firm is headquartered in Pittsburg, Kansas, with offices in Coffeyville and Overland Park and serving Kansas and Missouri. Contact our firm to schedule a free initial consultation or learn more about our practice areas on this website.
Factors such as poor training, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and driver fatigue can all contribute to a truck driver causing an accident. In examining the cause and liability of a truck accident, our lawyers thoroughly investigate a wide range of documents, including:
- Compliance with Department of Transportation standards
- Compliance with federal regulations
- Driver's past history
- Company's history of compliance
- Company's training programs
These types of cases can be complex, and our firm has a great deal of experience in this area of the law. We have a network of experts that we commonly call upon to help us get to the bottom of a trucking accident case.
Understanding Both Sides
Our firm has experience representing a number of injured commercial truckers. In many situations, the psychological aspect of these types of accidents can have lasting effects. In fact, many drivers are unable to return to truck driving. Having represented drivers, we have a unique perspective about both sides of the negotiation.
