Accidents Caused By Commercial Vehicle Negligence

Trucks aren't the only dangerous commercial vehicles on the road. Delivery vans, utility trucks and construction vehicles are constantly on the major highways, rural roads and city streets. They're making deliveries and providing needed services. Because of their busy schedules, their drivers are often rushed and tired. They make mistakes. And they can put other drivers at risk for serious personal injury and wrongful death.

Helping the Victims of Commercial Vehicle Accidents

At the Carter Law Offices, our Kansas City commercial vehicle attorneys help injured folks throughout Missouri and Kansas hold commercial vehicle owners and drivers accountable for the harm caused. Our lawyers work with a dedicated support staff, including a registered nurse and doctor of chiropractic, to achieve the best possible results for our clients.

We handle personal injury and wrongful death cases involving many different types of commercial vehicles:

  • Delivery vans and trucks
  • Utility vehicles
  • Construction equipment

Mediation: Why do I Need a Trial Lawyer for That?

Like other personal injury cases, many of the delivery truck accident cases we handle are settled through a form of alternative dispute resolution called mediation. Parties to a lawsuit enter mediation to resolve their differences. With the help of a mediator, they work out a good solution for both of them.

For attorneys, guiding clients through mediation requires special skills. While they're different skills than required at trial, many things are the same. Attorneys may have to give the opening statements they'd give at trial. At a minimum, they will have to show the evidence they have to support their clients' claims.

At the Carter Law Offices, we are accomplished trial lawyers. We use the in-depth knowledge, experience and skill that helps us succeed at trial to help us succeed in mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods. The results have been good — really good. Over the years, we have achieved a record of favorable jury verdicts and settlements for our clients.
