Why do I need a Wichita semi-truck accident lawyer?
In a minor accident, drivers typically exchange insurance and proceed with there day. In semi-truck accidents, lives change forever.
Most often, the scene of semi-truck accidents in Wichita are on the highway. Once medical treatment has been rendered and police are called to the scene, semi-truck drivers will also phone their employers. The person investigating the accident on behalf of the semi-truck driver will likely be a person from the semi-trucks business. The accident scene on the highway may change in a matter of minutes or hours. If the semi-truck disputes your claim, you are left to depend on police reports and reports from the semi-truck company. If you hire a lawyer, there will be a person investigating on your behalf.

How do you figure out who is responsible for a semi-truck accident?
Determining who is responsible for a semi-truck accident is a complex process. On the surface, you or the truck drive may be blamed. However, many factors need to be considered the cause of the accident and which party is ultimately at fault. Our team of semi-truck accident lawyers have investigated cases and found accidents have resulted from truck drivers too tired to be driving safely, drivers distracted or inattentive to road conditions, substance use, unsafe road conditions, unsecured truck-loads, and poor truck maintenance. In many cases, there may be multiple factors that contributed to an accident. Depending on the facts and circumstances unique to each case, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries from the driver of the semi-truck, the semi-truck company, the truck broker, or the road construction company.
