Kansas City Truck Accident Attorneys

Serious Injury Lawyers for Serious Accidents

In a collision with a tractor-trailer or any large truck, the massive impact is devastating to the occupants of a passenger vehicle. The usual outcome is serious or catastrophic injuries, if not death. How do you even begin to put your health and your life back together?

The experienced truck accident attorneys of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., have obtained large settlements and jury awards for victims of truck accidents and their families. We take cases across the Greater Kansas City Area and surrounding counties of Missouri and Kansas.

A truck crash demands prompt investigation while evidence and witness memories are fresh. Contact us at (816) 484-3776 immediately for a free consultation.

Types of Truck Accidents

Law partners Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have handled numerous trucking accidents in their 80 years of combined experience.

We handle cases involving:

  • 18-wheelers
  • Delivery trucks
  • Construction vehicles
  • Private commercial vehicles

Identifying the Cause of a Trucking Accident

Truck crash scenes are complex and chaotic, often involving multiple vehicles. Dempsey & Kingsland can summon professional investigators and accident reconstruction specialists to piece together the clues and prove liability. We act quickly to obtain photo evidence, witness statements, and an inspection of the truck cab, trailer, and victim’s vehicle before they are hauled away. Our attorneys also request logbooks, GPS records, “black box” data, maintenance records, employment records, and other documents.

From this body of evidence we can build a lawsuit to prove:

  • Truck driver fatigue, intoxication, or distracted driving
  • Truck driver negligence (speeding, lane changes, tailgating)
  • Unsafe condition of the truck
  • Overloading or improper loading
  • Negligent hiring of unqualified or dangerous drivers
  • Any combination of the above

Comprehensive Representation

The trucking company will fight liability and the insurance carrier will fight damages. We work with medical professionals and other experts to calculate the long-term impact of a truck wreck on you and your family.

How much are the hospital bills? Will you need future surgery or special care? Will you be able to work again? Were there major injuries resulting in permanent disability? What compensation do the survivors deserve for a wrongful death?

We can address each of these topics to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law. Our Kansas City truck accident attorneys understand the trucking industry, trucking laws, insurance issues, and civil litigation.
