Semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles can be very dangerous – and even deadly – when involved in a collision with a passenger car. Semi-truck crash cases are more complex than a typical auto accident case, and that’s why it is important that you work with an experienced trucking law firm. The trucking lawyers at Joseph, Hollander & Craft have the experience to effectively litigate your injury claim against any trucking company, no matter the size. If you have sustained an injury in a trucking collision, call our Wichita trucking accident attorneys at (316) 262-9393 for your free case assessment.

Experience Navigating Complex Trucking Cases

The majority of the time, trucking accident cases involve multiple defendants. Even if the truck driver was negligent in causing the collision, there are many third parties that can also be liable. Potentially liable third parties include the employer of the truck driver, the truck owner, the shipping company, the parts manufacturer, or the maintenance company. Each responsible party will have its own insurance carrier, making it important that you speak with a Wichita personal injury lawyer with experience in dealing with large insurance companies. You need JHC.

Trucking cases are unique because of the complex set of state and federal regulations that establish load limits, driver safety, inspection protocol, and maintenance standards. A driver or trucking company’s violations of Kansas laws or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations can establish liability. It is important that a thorough investigation is performed by an experienced trucking lawyer following the accident so it can be determined which regulations were violated. JHC’s Wichita truck accident lawyers will promptly investigate the cause of the accident and will aggressively fight for fair compensation on your behalf.

Injuries in Wichita Truck Crashes

Due to the great size and weight of semi-trucks, there can be severe and catastrophic injuries to anyone involved in a trucking collision. Some common injuries sustained by victims of Wichita trucking accidents include:

The Wichita trucking lawyers at JHC work with highly regarded experts to establish the extent of your injuries and the amount of compensation necessary to treat them, support your recovery, and address any necessary changes to your lifestyle.

Violations Known to Cause Truck Accidents

Since semi-trucks and 18-wheelers can cause catastrophic accidents, trucking companies are required to follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Truck crashes are often caused by violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, including:

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Hours of Service (HOS) rules mandate that trucking drivers have sufficient rest throughout the workweek. A truck driver who exceeds the Hours of Service rules risks falling asleep behind the wheel or failing to react to changing road conditions. If these regulations did not exist, many truck drivers would not take rest breaks and would operate their large trucks while sleep deprived. If you recently sustained injuries as a result of a truck driver’s negligence, JHC’s Wichita truck accident lawyers will investigate whether the truck driver exceeded the Hours of Service requirements.

No matter the specific cause of the collision, you should not have to pay for harm caused by someone else’s negligence. Call JHC’s Wichita truck crash lawyers today at (316) 262-9393 for your free consultation.

Common Questions About Truck Accidents in Wichita

What damages can I claim in my truck accident injury case?

The damages available to you are dependent on the specific facts of your trucking accident case. Typically, the three categories of damages available to a plaintiff in a trucking case are economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages. Economic damages include past medical bills, future medical bills, property damage, and lost wages. Noneconomic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost quality of life. You also may be entitled to punitive damages if the defendant willingly put you in harm’s way.

Hiring an experienced truck accident lawyer is the best way to ensure you recover compensation for all of the damages you sustained as a result of the truck crash. Contact JHC’s trucking lawyers today for a free case assessment.

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit arising from a truck collision in Kansas?

The applicable statute of limitations depends on where the injury occurred, the type of personal injury claim you are bringing, and whom you are bringing the claim against. In Kansas, the statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death claims is two years from the accident. You should consult with an experienced truck accident attorney to determine if you still have time to make a claim. Contact JHC today for a free consultation.
