What a Truck Accident Lawyer Does Differently

Tuesday, Mar. 21st 2023

A truck accident lawyer should be one of the first people you contact once the immediate aftermath of an accident is over. Dealing with a company in addition to a driver following an accident makes the situation more complicated than it would be under other circumstances. That’s why it’s crucial to have a legal team like the one at Northland Injury Law with the experience to help you navigate your case for you. Read on for an explanation of how a truck accident case differs from others.


As part of a to-do list after any accident, it’s necessary to get the other driver’s insurance information. When dealing with a truck accident, you’ll need the company’s insurance and the name of the company and driver. Trucking companies will often have representatives in the field that will set in to work at accident scenes. You’ll want to make sure you keep the attention of police at the scene on gathering statements and other evidence and not let the trucking company’s lawyer take control of the scene. If you’ve had an accident with a commercial truck in Kansas City, a truck accident lawyer from Northland Injury Law can help handle the extra hurdles of dealing with a company rather than an individual.
Medical Issues

Trucks, especially commercial trucks, are bigger in size than other vehicles. This means they can do more significant damage. In addition, statistics show that truck accidents are happening more frequently than they did ten years ago. This makes it even more important to find a truck accident lawyer like the ones at Northland Injury Law in Kansas City to help with your case.


Because you’re dealing with a company instead of an individual, the representation you will face following a truck accident is far higher than in other cases. A truck accident lawyer knows this and will be able to approach the situation in the best way possible to help you win compensation.
