Types of Commercial Vehicles

Seasoned commercial vehicle accident attorneys Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have extensive experience in truck accident investigations and litigation.

We can assist with your case if you were injured in an accident with a:

  • Box truck
  • Delivery truck
  • Flatbed truck
  • Tractor-trailer rig
  • Utility company truck
  • Dump truck, cement truck, or construction vehicle
  • Privately owned bus or shuttle
  • Company vehicle (landscaper pickups, courier minivans, pizza delivery cars)

Establishing Negligence

If fault is not clear, we can send professional investigators to the scene to examine the truck, preserve crash site evidence, and talk to witnesses. Our lawyers also obtain the truck’s onboard computer data, the driver’s log, and the company’s maintenance and hiring records. We work to show that the driver was fatigued, distracted, intoxicated, breaking traffic laws, or otherwise negligent, or that the company put a poorly maintained truck or unqualified driver on the road.

Calculating Damages

Collisions with trucks often result in more serious injuries, and thus those businesses carry higher insurance for bodily injury or wrongful death. Dempsey & Kingsland is skilled at demonstrating the physical, financial, and personal impact on our clients to maximize compensation. We have medical consultants on call who assess the future ramifications of the injuries, especially a permanent or catastrophic injury such as brain injury, paralysis, or lost limbs.

Holding Employers Accountable for Commercial Truck Injuries

We are committed to fair and timely compensation for people who are badly hurt by a truck crash. Our Kansas City truck accident attorneys are prepared to go to trial if necessary to prove liability and damages.
