Truck Accident Attorney in Minneapolis

Injured in a Trucking Accident? You Deserve Justice.

Trucks are large vehicles and they can do a lot of damage to anything that they come into contact with. In the case of a collision with a car, the results can be devastating since a truck can overpower a car very easily. Truck and car collisions have a high probability of resulting in a fatality. When fatalities occur, families go through a lot of pain. They experience emotional pain and also deal with financial pain. And, just like a person who has been injured and survives, the family of an individual killed in a truck accident has the right to pursue the responsible party for compensation for their financial damages.

To learn more about your options, call the Minneapolis truck accident attorneys at Meshbesher & Associates today. We can be reached at (612) 200-1526.

Types of Truck Accidents

Trucks come in different sizes. You have pickup trucks, box trucks, and semi-trucks. These are large vehicles that can cause a lot of damage. Nevertheless, accidents do come in different forms.

Some of the most common types of truck accidents include those involving:

  • Pedestrians
  • Collisions with other trucks or cars
  • Collisions with motorcycles
  • Collisions with objects in which individuals may be harmed
  • Garbage truck accidents in which debris becomes airborne
  • Semi-truck accidents

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Just as there are different accident types, there are also different causes. Some of the most common include:

  • Driving while texting
  • DUI/DWI
  • Negligence
  • Mechanical defect
  • Debris from a garbage truck striking a person
  • No zone accidents, which is in relation to the truck's blind spots
  • Employer negligence
  • Speeding

No matter the type of accident or how it was caused, you have the right to pursue the responsible party for compensation for medical bills, lost wages, the cost of childcare while you were recovering, funeral expenses if you lost a loved one, loss of support if you lost a loved one, and so much more. Your Minneapolis truck accident attorney will ensure you pursue the compensation relevant to your case so that you don't have to worry about the financial impact the accident has had on your life.

Semi-truck Accidents

One reason why semi-truck accidents can differ from other types of auto accidents is because of the size of the vehicle and the fact that there are many different instances that can occur. For instance, a semi-truck driver has many blind spots, but they are trained on how to deal with these blind spots. They also carry loads that can detach from the bed of the truck. They are even under pressure to make delivery times, and this may cause the driver to not rest or employers to not enforce resting periods for drivers, which causes the employer to be liable in an accident.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, contact a truck accident attorney in Minneapolis as soon as you can. The sooner you make the call, the sooner your case can be strategically put together. Your attorney can use the law to make sure you get the compensation that you deserve.
