18 Wheeler Injuries in Kansas
Unfortunately, truck accidents are not uncommon in Kansas. Recent incidents involve trucks making ill-advised U-Turns to those carrying cattle. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries involving a commercial truck, semi, or 18-wheeler in Kansas, the worst thing you can do is nothing.
Seek Medical Attention Immediately
Inaction can be viewed as a lack of seriousness of any injuries sustained in such an incident and may demonstrate that, perhaps, any future legal or medical claims lack merit. This is why it is critical that when involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler or commercial truck, you seek immediate medical attention.
Medical attention is important to document any injuries as being associated with the accident. In addition, some injuries, including neck and back injuries, may take weeks or months to manifest themselves fully. These types of injuries can be debilitating and long-lasting.
Legal Representation is Critical
Legal representation is critical because of the nature of the trucking industry in America. Some very large companies have become very skilled at insulating themselves from responsibility for trucking accidents through layers of contractors or subcontractors. In addition, there can be multiple responsible parties when injuries occur from a commercial trucking accident.
While the driver himself may be a target for blame, other parties may include the company that loaded the truck, repaired the semi, or trained the driver. Was the truck properly maintained or did it have faulty tires installed? Was the driver fatigued due to over-scheduling or poorly qualified to operate the specific type of vehicle he was driving?
