Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

Can’t an 18-wheeler make a U-turn like a regular car?

No, not at all. Large trucks, like 18 wheelers, can’t maneuver in tight spaces like small vehicles can. It takes a while to back up a 48 foot truck without hitting anything. Drivers of smaller vehicles need to be patient while the truck driver does his or her job to back the trailer up. Trucks also make wide right turns. Give the trucker some space and don’t try and pass along-side the truck on the right.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a truck accident, please call our experienced Kansas City attorneys at (816) 471-5111 to schedule a free consultation. You can also download a free copy of our book, "Don't Wreck Your Injury Claim," for more information about filing a personal injury claim.
