Lane Changes Resulting in Truck Accidents

Kansas/Missouri Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

When a truck driver makes a lane change at freeway speed, it spells danger for anyone driving in the next lane. If the driver alongside is boxed in or has no time to react, the resulting tangle usually causes severe injuries if not death.

The personal injury lawyers of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., have handled truck accidents in which the trucker changed lanes in an unsafe manner. We are committed to proving negligence and securing full compensation for the devastation to those victims and their families.

Call our Kansas City, Missouri, office at 816-421-6868 for a free consultation. We take cases on the Missouri and Kansas sides of the K.C. metro area.

Lane Changes as a Cause of Truck Accidents

Trial attorneys Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland bring more than 50 years of combined experience to your case, as well as quick access to professional truck wreck investigators. We are skilled at reconstructing the events if it is necessary to establish how the truck driver was at fault:

  • Changing lanes without looking or signaling
  • Intentional lane changes into an occupied lane
  • Aggressive moves at freeway interchanges
  • Crossing several lanes of traffic to make the exit
  • Side view mirror missing, cracked or obscured
  • Distracted or inattentive driving

An unsafe lane change by the driver of an 18-wheeler often causes chain reaction crashes as the other drivers in the vicinity take evasive action. The motorist in the truck's immediate path may be forced off the road. Lane changes also result in violent underride accidents — the passenger vehicle tangled and mangled under the trailer.

Any of these scenarios are likely to cause severe or permanent injuries, if not a fatal accident. Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., has the resources to build a case for maximum compensation, including medical consultants who review every one of our cases. Along with other professionals, we work up a demand package for the lasting disability, future medical care, lost earnings and the pain and suffering of the victim.
