Lane Changes

Lane Change Truck Accident Attorneys in Kansas City

Serving Clients Injured by Truck Collisions

When a truck driver makes a lane change at freeway speed, it spells danger for anyone driving in the next lane. If the driver alongside is boxed in or has no time to react, the resulting tangle usually causes severe injuries if not death.

The Kansas City personal injury lawyers of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C. have handled truck accidents in which the trucker changed lanes in an unsafe manner. When it comes to lane changes resulting in truck accidents, we are committed to proving negligence and securing full compensation for the devastation to those victims and their families.

Call our office at (816) 484-3776 for a free consultation. We take cases in Missouri and Kansas.

Lane Changes as a Cause of Truck Accidents

Trial attorneys Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland bring more than 100 years of combined experience to your case, as well as quick access to professional truck wreck investigators. We are skilled at reconstructing the events if it is necessary to establish how the truck driver was at fault.

We hold truckers and trucking companies accountable for:

  • Changing lanes without looking or signaling
  • Intentional lane changes into an occupied lane
  • Aggressive moves at freeway interchanges
  • Crossing several lanes of traffic to make the exit
  • Driving with a missing or damaged side view mirror
  • Distracted or inattentive driving

An unsafe lane change by the driver of an 18-wheeler often causes chain reaction crashes as the other drivers in the vicinity take evasive action. The motorist in the truck’s immediate path may be forced off the road. Lane changes also result in violent underride accidents — the passenger vehicle tangled and mangled under the trailer.

Any of these scenarios is likely to cause severe or permanent injuries, if not a fatal accident. Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., has the resources to build a case for maximum compensation, including medical consultants who review every one of our cases. Along with other professionals, we work up a demand package for the lasting disability, future medical care, lost earnings, and pain and suffering of the victim.
