The Team You Need for the Results You Deserve Kansas City's Leading Medical Malpractice & Serious Personal Injury Firm

Equipment Failure Truck Accident Lawyers in Kansas City

Did Your Injuries Stem From Poor Truck Maintenance?

Trucking companies are held to a higher standard of safety because of the potential for injury or death. Any large truck poses a threat to smaller cars in a crash, and equipment failure or disrepair only increases the destruction.

The law firm of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C. can hold the truck owners responsible for shoddy maintenance that resulted in trucking accidents caused by equipment failure. We have represented truck crash victims across the Greater Kansas City Area in both Missouri and Kansas.

Prompt investigation is critical to maximizing your compensation. Contact us immediately, day or night, to start the investigation. Call (816) 484-3776.

Maintenance & Equipment Failure

The federal government strictly regulates 18-wheelers and other large trucks, including specifications for equipment and frequency of inspections. Truck companies and truck drivers also have a duty to perform pre-trip inspections and ensure that the rig is road-worthy.

Our lead trial attorneys, Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland, oversee a thorough investigation to prove negligence and trucking accidents caused by equipment failure. Through law enforcement reports, crash scene evidence, maintenance logs, the onboard “black box” recorder, state and federal inspector records, and our own professional investigators, we work to trace the specific safety breach that led to an accident.

We look out for:

  • Bald tires
  • Worn brakes
  • Broken running lights
  • Missing reflectors/reflective tape
  • Loose tarps, tie-downs or mud flaps
  • Problems with the trailer hitch or rear doors

Any of these defects can increase stopping distance, pose hazards to motorists behind or alongside, or make the truck hard to see at night.
