Distracted Driver Truck Accident Attorneys in Kansas City

Representing Those Harmed by Distracted Truck Drivers

The research shows that engaging in any other activity while driving increases the chances of an accident. When a truck driver’s attention is divided, it is the lives of other motorists that are most endangered.

No truck driver is going to admit to inattentive or distracted driving. The Kansas City truck accident attorneys of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C. have the experience and the network of professionals to uncover the truth. We have won compensation for many clients by demonstrating driver negligence in tractor-trailer crashes and other commercial vehicle accidents.

Call us immediately at (816) 484-3776 if you or a loved one was injured in a truck accident. We offer a free consultation, serving clients in both Missouri and Kansas.

The Dangers of Distracted Driving

Any activity that takes your eyes off the road for even a moment — changing the radio station, glancing at a map, unwrapping a sandwich — increases the risk of an accident. But talking and texting on a cell phone are two of the most dangerous distractions.

Dialing or talking on a cell phone — even a hands-free device — makes a driver four times more likely to be in a crash with injuries, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Plus, the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration reports that inattentive driving is a factor in 25% of all motor vehicle accidents.

Proving Texting While Driving & Other Distractions

The “black box” data recorder on a tractor-trailer provides valuable information about the driver’s speed and braking prior to impact. Our accident reconstruction experts compare this information with skid marks and other evidence at the crash scene to piece together fault. Witness statements can be very powerful evidence, and we can subpoena the driver’s cell phone records to prove that he or she was on the phone or texting while operating the truck.

Once presented with a solid case for liability, the trucking company and insurance carrier are more likely to negotiate a good settlement. For a catastrophic injury or wrongful death, we work with many professionals to calculate appropriate damages for future medical treatment, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Our experienced Kansas City truck accident attorneys are committed to maximizing your compensation. Contact us at (816) 484-3776 as soon as possible so we can investigate.
