Steps you must take if you are involved in a commercial truck accident in Missouri:


1.  Call the police

If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident with a truck, you must act quickly. Trucking companies have representatives in the field who often arrive at accident scenes while emergency medical personnel are still trying to help the injured. These representatives often steer law enforcement officials away from evidence and information that would be helpful for the injured person. Evidence is also often lost or destroyed. This evidence includes driver’s logs and electronic control modules, also known as ECMs or black boxes. ECMs record speed, braking, RPMs and gear shifting. Obtaining driver logs and ECMs is important, because these devices are often used to place liability on the trucker or trucking company. Trucking companies need to be held accountable for their violations.


2.  Exchange insurance information

Make sure you have the drivers name and trucking company insurance information and take photos of the vehicles and the scene when possible. Witnesses can be crucial to your case, so get names and phone numbers of anyone who saw the accident. This should be adhered to in all types of accidents, from minor fender benders to dangerous truck cases.


3.  Seek medical attention

Often there are catastrophic injuries associated with a trucking accident. These injuries include burns, brain damage and spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis. Many times, people are killed as a result of a trucking collision. As Kansas City trial attorneys, our truck accident lawyer will vigorously pursue compensation for these injuries and are persistent advocates for victim’s rights.


4.  Call a lawyer

When it comes to truck accidents, you should not choose legal representation from a truck accident lawyer who is lacking in experience and the skills needed to win your case. Choose a Kansas City truck accident lawyer who has a proven track record and years of experience representing truck collision victims. The trial lawyers at Northland Injury Law will fight aggressively for your rights and apply our knowledge in and out of the courtroom to make sure you get every bit of the compensation you deserve.

Northland Injury Law is proud of the relationships they’ve built with the clients they have served in the Northland and surrounding areas.  Their many great results for seriously injured people have helped their clients recover the significant economic losses that attend such serious injuries.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
