Kansas City Trucking Violations Attorney
Kansas City, Missouri-Based Truck Driver Fatigue and Logging Violations Lawyer
The number one cause of trucking accidents is driver fatigue. Federal Regulations intended to limit time on the road are frequently violated by drivers who falsify their own driving logs. Both the trucking company and the driver have a duty to maintain accurate records and follow federal guidelines. We have the knowledge necessary to discover logging violations and hold truck drivers and trucking companies accountable.
Contact our firm for more information. We hold trucking companies accountable for the trucking violations that cause catastrophic injury and wrongful death. Our firm advocates for change through lobbying and participation in organizations such as Parents Against Tired Truckers (P.A.T.T.).
"The most knowledgeable and experienced attorneys with regard to truck accident cases. If it were my family, I would give them a call, no matter where I lived." John Lannen, Executive Director, Truck Safety Coalition, Washington D.C.
Kansas and Missouri Equipment Violations
Equipment violations are another cause of trucking accidents. Before a trip, trucks undergo a pre-trip inspection. Poor brakes and bad tires can be detected in these inspections. These faulty products often go undetected or the inspection simply does not happen.
Unsafe Truckers in Missouri and Kansas
Trucking companies also fail to do sufficient background checks on their drivers. Driving history and violations need to be checked before allowing a trucker out on the road. Trucking companies are seriously negligent when they allow inexperienced and unqualified drivers on the road. There is a mandatory drug and alcohol test for truck drivers that is done at the scene of an accident. Drugs and alcohol often contribute to the injuries. We pursue compensation for injuries caused by drivers who were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
