At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys we want to help keep our roads safe. That's why we make it our job to protect you and your family after a serious injury accident. On the highway, there can be nothing scarier than a semi-truck with a driver who may not be giving his or her full attention to the road.

Research from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration suggests that 10% of the nearly 33,00 victims in fatal vehicle accidents are killed in crashes involving semi and big rig trucks. The same reports suggests that over 70,000 people suffer serious injury in a trucking accident in the United States. The bad news is that less than 15% of these victims are the driver of the large truck involved in the accident. There are many causes for serious injury and fatal trucking accidents in Kansas City.

Three Main Causes of Serious Injury and Fatal Trucking Accidents:

  • driving too fast
  • failure to keep in the proper lane
  • distracted and/or inattentive driving.
As Kansas and Missouri Trucking Injury Lawyers, we want to remind all truck drivers to be careful this week when traveling through the Kansas City area as the roads are going to be dangerous.  Patient driving can help avoid serious injury trucking accidents by simply paying attention and following the rules of the road.  Give yourself plenty of time to get where you're going.  Travel times a couple of weeks ago were anywhere between an hour and 2 and a half hours to get across the city for commuters.  Be safe.  Drive Smart.
