					Semi-Truck Accidents

Semi-truck accidents involve very different issues than car accidents. The laws governing semi-trucks and
the trucking industry are very different than those governing passenger cars. Kansas City truck accident
attorney Denise Henning has the experience necessary to handle these complex cases.
        Semi-truck cases involve the application and interpretation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety
Regulations, which govern the everyday tasks of the truck driver and the trucking company. You need an
attorney who will investigate such issues as keeping accurate logbooks and recording hours of service,
maintaining the truck, loading and unloading, random and post-accident drug and alcohol testing, and the
qualifications, training and supervision of the drivers. America’s highways are flooded with large semi-
trucks trying to meet delivery deadlines imposed by their employers. Trucking companies have difficulty
finding enough qualified drivers, so they resort to hiring unqualified drivers, pushing their drivers to deliver
even when they are fatigued, and ignoring substance abuse problems with drivers. These practices lead
to more semi-truck accidents, which are usually deadly and catastrophic.

When you or your family member has suffered an injury, you need someone you can trust to help you get
your medical bills paid, recover for lost wages, and receive compensation for the pain and suffering you

appear. A quick settlement is usually not the best outcome for you. At The Henning Law Firm, we will

Highway Defects

If you have been injured in an accident caused by or made worse by a defect in the design of the
highway, The Henning Law Firm can help you pursue compensation for your personal injuries. At the
Henning Law Firm, we have experience in highway defect litigation and know where to look and what
information to acquire to prove that the defect was the cause or a contributing cause of your injuries.
Suing the highway department is different than suing another motorist or corporate entity. There are
certain laws that pertain only to the highway department.


Bicycle & Motorcycle Accidents

Bicycle and motorcycle accidents are usually very tragic and fall under a cloud of unique public scrutiny.
Unfortunately, police and bystanders often want to immediately blame the bicyclist or motorcyclist for the
accident. We thoroughly investigate every case and will hire expert witnesses, such as accident
reconstructionists, who will evaluate the scientific facts of your case and explain how an accident actually
happened. If you have been a victim of a bicycle or motorcycle accident, you need an experienced lawyer
who will discover the facts to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries.


Product Liability

Dangerous and defective products can cause serious injury, and be a contributing factor in other injuries.
When a manufacturer designs a product, it must keep in mind all reasonable foreseeable uses and
design a product that is reasonably safe. Whether the product is a tire that falls apart, a dishwasher that
catches on fire, a medical device that fails, or a baby product that causes harm, experience in product
liability law is very important. It is essential to discover other injured individuals with similar injuries to
prove your case to the jury. At The Henning Law Firm, we will thoroughly investigate every detail of your
case to determine what happened and identify each entity that is responsible for your injuries. We will hire
expert witnesses who will help evaluate your case and explain it to the jury.


Workplace Accidents

Catastrophic injury in the workplace may involve a third party liability claim and claims for workers
compensation benefits. If a third party, other than the employer, is at fault there may be an avenue of
recovery other than workers compensation benefits. Contact us if you have been injured on the job and
you think someone besides your employer may be partially at fault. At The Henning Law Firm, we will do
the investigation necessary to determine who all the responsible parties might be and help you recover
for your personal injuries.
