The Kansas City Area Personal Injury Attorney

Kansas City Utility Truck Accident Lawyer


Have you been in a car wreck in Kansas City that you feel was the fault of a utility truck, including any private tree trimming truck, that was blocking your lane and obstructing your view? If so, then you may be entitled to compensation from the owner of that truck if they are held fully or even partially responsible for your accident.  When a party is held partially responsible this is sometimes referred to as contributory negligence.


Utility trucks or even delivery trucks can be found parked or idling in the oddest counterintuitive places in the Kansas City Metro area creating dangerous driving zones.  They can be found in no parking zones or on corners completely obstructing the view of other drivers.  The owners of these trucks seem to think they have a right to impede traffic and create dangerous situations because they are working.  The law does not give them the right to create dangerous driving situations for other people.  Consequently, if you have been in an accident and you feel that a utility truck or other large truck that was parked or idling in the road contributed in any way to your accident you should alert your lawyer to this fact.


If the owner of a truck is found to have some responsibility for your accident, then you will have the right to collect from the owner of the truck financial payment to help cover your damages that you received from the accident.  These damages may include ambulance bills, hospital bills, and lost wages.  When speaking to your lawyer about your accident be sure to discuss what types of damages you believe you are entitled to.  Your lawyer will be able to give you guidance as to what types of damages you have a right to claim against any party held even partially responsible for your injuries.


In situations where you did not cause the accident you may have a right to collect from both the other driver and the owner of a utility truck contributing to the accident.  A good Kansas City area personal injury lawyer will know how to hold multiple parties responsible for your injuries.  You may be able to collect money from more than one party to help cover all of your damages including all of your medical expenses.  You should call Rocky, a Kansas City area personal injury lawyer at 816-353-0009 to discuss your accident.


Your choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements.



Big utility trucks are hard to stop and bad to run into.
