Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyers

Semi-truck accidents result in some of the most serious personal injury cases we handle at the law firm of Heimerl & Lammers. Regardless of who was at fault in a car-truck collision, it is always the driver and passengers in the car who pay the price. As lawyers, we take our responsibilities of representing those victims very seriously.

If you or a family member has been injured in an accident involving a tractor-trailer, your life will be changed for many months and perhaps permanently. You don’t have to face issues such as insurance claims, medical care, and rehabilitation alone. Our lawyers will guide you every step of the way to help you make as full of a recovery as possible. We offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions.

Who Will Pay My Medical Bills and Lost Wages?

Minnesota’s no-fault insurance will pay up to $20,000 in medical bills and another $20,000 in lost wages, regardless of who caused the accident. However, if you have been seriously injured, that money will not go far.

If the accident was the fault of the truck driver or trucking company, you could sue their insurance company for additional damages. Commercial truck carriers are required to carry a substantial amount of insurance to pay for the damages of the people they injure. In many cases, there are separate policies to cover the driver, the truck and the trailer. As a result, insurance coverage is usually not a problem in a truck accident case, as long as you can prove liability against the truck driver or trucking company.

How is Fault Determined in Truck Accident Cases?

As a part of our investigation, our lawyers will order truck maintenance and driver history records from the trucking company. Trucking companies are required by Department of Transportation to conduct regular maintenance and safety checks of commercial tractor trailers. They are also required to hire qualified drivers.

Truck drivers are required to take regular rest breaks while they are on the road. Our lawyers will examine the driver’s logbook, gas receipts and other records to determine if driver fatigue played a role in causing the accident.

We always investigate the scene of the accident and take pictures to use in accident reconstruction. If there were witnesses, our attorneys will obtain witness statements.
