Horn Law has a concentration in handling injury and death cases resulting from truck accidents. Cases involving a trucking accident are complex and require experienced legal representation. The state and federal laws applicable to both truck drivers and trucking companies are complex and frequently change. Immediate investigation and legal representation are of substantial benefit.
The Horn Law Firm, P.C. obtained a $875,000.00 settlement for our clients. The father and grandmother of our clients were both killed when a semi-truck rear-ended their car causing it to catch on fire. Retention of an accident reconstructionist was key in reaching this successful result for our clients.
Our client was side-swiped by a semi-truck on westbound I-70 in Kansas City and suffered head injuries, including short-term memory loss. Horn Law obtained a $212,630.93 settlement to cover past, present, & future medical expenses, wage loss, and other damages when aggressive litigation revealed that the federal government had shut down the trucking company for repeated safety violations.
A husband and wife recovered $120,000.00 for soft tissue injuries they suffered in a chain-reaction accident caused by a truck on I-35 in Kansas. The trucking firm refused to offer fair compensation prior to Horn Law filing a lawsuit. The case was settled shortly before trial.

The settlement with the trucking firm was particularly successful because of evidence there was pre-existing injury and a prior accident.
