Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyers & Attorneys
SEMI TRACTOR TRAILER ACCIDENTS IN MINNESOTA HAPPEN FREQUENTLY
In 2008, one out of nine car crash deaths resulted from a collision involving a large truck (gross vehicle weight greater than 10,000 pounds). That ratio does not seem to have changed since them. Large trucks also accounted for 4% of all vehicles involved in injury and property-damage-only crashes. Minnesota definitely has our share of truck accidents that injure people and cause property damage, and our MN attorneys represent people injured in truck and semi truck accident cases, usually where a semi truck hits a car, every year.
TRUCK ACCIDENTS RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURIES AND PROPERTY DAMAGE
Because of the size of semi-tractor-trailers, the injuries and property damage after a truck accident are often severe. Our top MN semi truck accident lawyers represent people injured because of a collision with semi trailers and other kinds of trucks. If a large truck hits your car, the vehicles do not have to be going very fast for serious damage to occur to the car and the people in it. People injured because of an crash with a semi tractor can be injured from the initial impact with the truck, or when they crash into something else after being hit or pushed by the truck. Our truck crash lawyers have seen accidents where the force of the impact with a semi truck has propelled the car into other cars or the median at high speeds, so that the second impact can be worse than the first. Fortunately, because of the dangerous nature of semi-truck and other commercial vehicles, they often have significant insurance coverage so that your medical bills can be paid and you can receive other compensation for your injuries and car damage. Our truck accident lawyer in MN have years of experience making sure our clients are fully compensated for their injuries after a being hit by a semi or other type of truck.
SEMI TRUCK ACCIDENT CASES IN MINNESOTA
There are numerous state and federal regulations that govern the operation of commercial vehicles like semi trucks, tractor trailers and other trucks. In Minnesota, the State Patrol is required to do a complete investigation every time there is a crash involving a semi-trailer, but they mostly focus on drug testing, trip logs, and whether the equipment is working properly. Unfortunately, the State Patrol’s accident reconstruction and witness interviews after a truck accident in MN can sometimes be less than thorough. Therefore, we have found that it can sometimes make a difference in the case if our best MN semi truck accident attorneys are retained early enough to do our own investigation as well. Even after the evidence from the scene is removed, there may be skid marks we can examine, and we always want to do our own interviews with witnesses.
