Cases Requiring Truck Accident Attorneys
Accidents involving commercial trucking companies can be much more complicated than regular auto accidents. Usually there are numerous parties that can be held liable. Our trucking accident attorneys will go after all of the liable parties on your behalf. This may include the driver of the truck, the owner of the truck, and the company that hired the truck. Each of these parties can potentially have its own insurance company, making matters even more complicated. That is why it is so important to hire qualified trucking accident attorneys to handle your case.
Our legal team has in-depth knowledge of the commercial transportation rules that truckers and trucking companies must abide by. We know how to acquire evidence to build your case and determine whether the at-fault parties violated any of the commercial transportation rules. You can rest assured we leave no stone unturned when it comes to investigating your claim and using the law for the benefit of your case.
Problems Involved with Trucking Accidents
The consequences of a collision with a commercial semi-truck can be catastrophic. This is especially true when they are involved in an accident with a smaller, more vulnerable vehicle. The typical commercial semi-truck weighs in excess of 80,000 pounds, nearly 27 times the weight of an average vehicle. Many of these accidents are directly linked to issues like driver fatigue, substance abuse, speeding, and overloaded freight. In other words, they should never have happened in the first place.
Upon investigating a semi-truck driver’s log book and other information, it often becomes clear that serious negligence is involved. If you have been involved in an accident with one of these big rigs, it is highly doubtful that you walked away without serious injuries, or even more tragically, you may have lost a loved one in the incident.
Although some big truck accidents in Minnesota happen due to faulty equipment and other factors, far too many of them occur due to driver negligence. Unfortunately, many semi-truck drivers fail to obey the many strict state and federal regulations that are imposed on them. When that happens, innocent people are often the ones who pay. In these situations, federal and state laws are on your side. The trucking accident attorneys at our firm will help you receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering so you can move forward with your life.
