Semi Truck Hit Car Crash Investigation Best Attorneys MN

SEMI TRUCK CAR ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION

Our car accident lawyers have handled many cases involving a semi-truck.  A truck driver is a professional and should have extensive training. Further, they should always be extra careful because their vehicle is so big and heavy. Any crash will result in serious property damage, injury, or death. Unfortunately, truck drivers are often given financial incentive to drive faster, or even too many hours at a time. They may be overtired and less able to avoid hazards. There can also be equipment failures when the truck is overused without regular maintenance.

The Minnesota State Patrol takes semi truck accidents very seriously.  They have a whole division just for regulating commercial vehicles. In addition, the State Patrol also has dedicated reconstruction investigators who work to find out why a crash happened. The reconstruction experts are always getting new and better equipment. For example, they recently got new computer software to download the event data recorder from most types of semi truck engines. The event data recorder can provide a lot of information for the 5 – 10 seconds before a crash. For example, how fast the truck was going, whether and when the driver applied the brakes, and more.

ATTORNEY INVESTIGATION OF CAR VS SEMI TRUCK ACCIDENT

Our lawyers usually represent the people in the car hit by a semitruck. First, we are injury lawyers, and it is usually the people in the car who are injured. Also, it is often the truck driver who is at fault. In many cases, we hire our own reconstruction expert to investigate the crash if there is any doubt about fault. Our lawyers will also spend more time interviewing witnesses. If the truck insurance company denies their driver was at fault, we will take depositions of the driver and other people at the truck company.
