Southern Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyer
Many people feel anxious when they have to pass a semi truck or one passes them on the highway. These vehicles are large, usually carry heavy loads, and the drivers have limited visibility. When involved in an accident with one of these vehicles, the results can be devastating.
If you were injured or a loved one was injured or killed in a semi truck accident due to the negligence of another party, you may have a valid personal injury claim. With the help of an experienced Mankato personal injury attorney, you can get the results that you are looking for so you can focus on healing.
Exercise Your Rights
When the negligence of a semi truck driver, the manufacturer of the truck, the trucking company, or any other relevant party leads to an accident that results in you being injured or a loved one being injured or killed, you have rights. One of those rights is to pursue the responsible parties for compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other applicable expenses that are related to the accident. By recovering the money that you need either through settlement or trial, you can focus on your recovery rather than worrying about how you are going to make ends meet.
Thoroughly Investigating Your Case
Personal injury cases involving semi trucks are somewhat different than those involving automobiles. The reason is because semi trucks have to comply with state and federal laws. The laws are designed to ensure the drivers and the companies that manage them follow through with a certain set of responsibilities. If those responsibilities are not carried out, then a devastating accident can result, causing injury or death to the driver or to other drivers on the road.
When involved in an accident, your Southern Minnesota personal injury lawyer will most likely negotiate with the insurance company for the carrier. These companies are required to carry insurance to cover any major damages that are caused by their drivers and/or their trucks. Our attorney will sit down at the negotiation table and work to negotiate a settlement that covers your expenses and allows you to move forward with your recovery. If the settlement is not enough, then we can take the case to trial. There will be a number of decisions that you will have to make throughout the process, but we will review the options with you along with their expected outcomes so that you can make informed decisions regarding your case.
