Experience Counts

Helping You Recover Damages After A Motorcycle Or Trucking Accident

Sharing the road or highway with 18-wheelers, delivery trucks, U-hauls, SUVs and other large passenger vehicles can be difficult in the best of circumstances. Adding negligence or recklessness by a driver can create an even more hazardous situation.

With their large mass and high rate of speed, large commercial trucks can cause significant damage to smaller cars and motorcycles. If you or a loved one has been involved in a trucking or motorcycle accident in the Kansas City, Missouri, area, it is vital to work with a personal injury attorney who is willing to fight for full compensation. I am attorney James P. Cannon, and I will put my 35-plus years of experience to work for you.

Ready To Challenge Truckers, Their Employers And Their Insurers

Commercial truck drivers run on tight schedules and even tighter budgets. It is not unusual for them or their employers to cut corners on safety to get their cargo delivered on time. Putting profits over safety can lead to accidents caused by:

  • Drivers who have not been adequately trained
  • Vehicles that are not maintained
  • Loads that are not properly secured
  • Drivers who are not rested or cleared to drive due to health conditions
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

I am ready to go head-to-head with truck drivers, their employers and their employers’ insurance providers.

Motorcycle Accidents Can Be Devastating

It’s no secret that motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable drivers on the road. Getting clipped by another vehicle, rear-ended at an intersection or hit during a lane change can cause severe injuries. Rely on me to provide skilled, aggressive representation if you have suffered motorcycle accident injuries that include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Head, shoulder, back or neck trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage

Recovering from a motorcycle accident can take months and cost thousands of dollars. Allow me to focus on your legal matter while you take care of yourself and your family.
