Commercial truck drivers are held to a higher standard because they are, essentially, professional drivers. Unfortunately, trucking companies don't always exercise the greatest care in screening or training new drivers. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by a negligent commercial vehicle driver, schedule a free consultation with a lawyer at our firm immediately.
At The Law Offices of Brian Timothy Meyers, our Kansas City commercial vehicle negligence lawyers take the time to thoroughly examine every aspect of an accident. We work diligently to ensure we can properly assess liability and develop an effective case strategy. We expect a greater standard of care and attention from these professional drivers, and, when this does not happen, we strive to hold the negligent party responsible.
Our firm has experience representing clients who were injured in accidents caused by a variety of dangerous situations, including:
- Texting while driving
- Cellphone use while driving
- Unsafe or unbalanced loads
- Unsecured loads
- Defective safety features
- Drug or alcohol use
- Driver fatigue
Additionally, commercial trucks are larger, heavier, more difficult to control and travel at greater highway speeds than other vehicles. When these trucks are involved in a motor vehicle accident, the other vehicles often suffer devastating property damage and the drivers suffer catastrophic or even fatal injuries. Having a skilled attorney on your side is important as you fight to ensure you receive proper monetary compensation.
