The Danger of Commercial Trucks on Roads

Due to their enormous size, commercial trucks are fully capable of causing serious damage to other automobiles and drivers on Minnesota roads and highways. Even the most responsible drivers can be victims of accidents involving these massive machines. Unfortunately, the most damage often happens to innocent individuals who were not at fault for the wreck. If you have been involved in a commercial trucking accident, it is likely that you will have costly medical expenses and require time away from your job as you recover and focus on returning to your daily life once again.

Holding Drivers & Their Companies Responsible

Truck drivers and their companies are under a set of state and federal regulations regarding how they must operate their vehicle, how much time they spend on the road, and more. When they break these rules, others may end up suffering and our Willmar truck accident lawyers at Schneider & Madsen P.C. believe that the culpable parties should be held fully responsible for their actions. From hospital and rehabilitation bills to lost wages while away from work, there are a variety of damages that we may be able to recover for you!

Some of the most common causes of commercial trucking accidents include:

  • Fatigued truck operators
  • Failure to see other vehicles when changing lanes or making a turn
  • Not abiding by posted speed limits or traffic laws
  • Truck operators under the influence of alcohol, prescription medication, or illegal substances
  • Poorly weighted and balanced trucks
  • Poor or insufficient training of truck operators by their companies
  • Defective truck parts
  • Poor vehicle maintenance

Don't Let the Insurance Company Minimize Your Claim!

Many times, the trucking company involved in the accident will be backed by a large insurance provider who is experienced in dealing with these types of situations. They may immediately contact accident victims and attempt to immediately settle for an unfair amount that will not fully cover their expenses. Even worse, they may try to place some of the blame, or even all of the blame, on innocent parties and attempt to deny the claim altogether. Don't let this happen to you. Our Willmar truck accident attorneys are well-prepared to battle the big insurance companies on your behalf and obtain a fair settlement or verdict.
