Minnesota Truck/Car Accident Lawyers & Attorneys
SEMI TRACTOR TRAILER ACCIDENTS IN MINNESOTA HAPPEN FREQUENTLY
One out of every nine car crash deaths involve a large truck collision. (“Large truck” means gross vehicle weight greater than 10,000 pounds). Semis and large trucks also account for 4% of all vehicles involved in injury and property-damage crashes. Minnesota definitely has our share of car accidents caused by a truck, many with injury and property damage. The Rochlin Law Firm MN attorneys represent people injured in truck and semi-truck accident cases, usually where a semi truck hits a car.
TRUCK ACCIDENT WITH CAR RESULTS IN SERIOUS INJURIES AND PROPERTY DAMAGE
Because of the size of a semi-tractor-trailer, the injuries and property damage after a truck accident are often severe. Our top MN semi truck accident lawyers represent people injured in a car crash with a semitrailer 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.
In a crash with a semi tractor, people can be injured several ways. For example, the initial impact with the truck, or when they crash into something else (like the median or another car) after being hit or pushed by the truck. Our truck crash attorneys have seen many accidents where the force of the impact with a semi-truck propelled the car it hit into something else. That second impact can be worse than the first.
Because of the dangerous nature of semi-truck and other commercial vehicles, they often have significant insurance coverage. The truck’s insurance can pay your medical bills as well as other compensation for your injuries and car damage. Our car hit by truck accident lawyers in MN have 25 years of experience. We make sure our clients are fully compensated for their injuries after being hit by a semi or other type of truck.
SEMI TRUCK CAR ACCIDENT CASES IN MINNESOTA
There are numerous state and federal regulations that govern the operation of commercial vehicles like semi-trucks and tractor trailers. In Minnesota, the State Patrol is required to do a complete investigation every time there is a crash involving a semi-trailer. However, they mostly focus on drug testing, trip logs, and whether the truck’s 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 – especially in bad weather. Therefore, 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 our investigator can examine. Of course, we always want to do our own interviews with car truck accident witnesses.
