Wichita Semi-Truck Accident Attorney
Our truck accident lawyers get you the compensation you deserve
Did a semi-truck crash into your vehicle in Wichita? Or perhaps you're dealing with a tractor-trailer accident involving a loved one? Either way, it's critical that you have a lawyer on your side who knows how the legal system works in Sedgwick County. That's why you need Bretz Injury Law.
Our legal team has been handling complex legal cases involving people injured in semi-truck accidents for years. We know the state and federal laws that apply to truck accidents. We know what evidence to look for to build a strong, compelling case.
We also understand the urgency of such cases. Trucking companies are not required to keep certain evidence (including House of Service (HOS) logs). You also only have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action in Kansas. That's why it's critical that you talk to a lawyer at our law firm right away because, without the facts, you might not have a strong case.
Why semi-truck accidents happen
Sharing the road with semi-trucks is a common part of life in Kansas. Big semis use the turnpike as they travel across the state and some of them sometimes cause crashes. Reasons why include:
- Truck driver is texting while driving (even though it's against federal law)
- Speeding truck driver takes a turn too fast and rolls the truck over.
- Inexperienced truck driver loses control of their semi-truck.
- Tired truck driver falls asleep at the wheel.
- Poorly maintained truck (bad brakes, tires, etc.) causes a serious accident.

What we can do to help you
Trucking companies, their insurance companies and their attorneys, will likely do everything they can to pay you as little as possible for your accident. Why? Because often, there's thousands or even millions of dollars at stake.
Your accident-related expenses can cover a wide range - from emergency medical bills, long-term health care, physical therapy, lost income and lost future income. These expenses can add up fast and if you don't take legal action, you could end up having to pay for them yourself.
That's not fair. That's why we want to work with you. We know how to negotiate effectively with insurance companies, trucking companies and anyone responsible for compensating you. If they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court on your behalf.
