What Is Your Truck Accident Injury Claim Really Worth?
Don't assume your injuries or wrongful death claim is only worth what the truck insurance company is telling you. Truck companies often insure their vehicles and drivers for significantly more money than auto policies. In fact, many drivers only insure their cars and personal liability for the minimum required by law in Minnesota. Truck companies know they have to carry significantly more coverage. We work hard to find every dollar available to compensate you for their negligence.
Holding Drivers and Trucking Companies Accountable for Trucking Accidents
Truck drivers work long hours and are often pressured by their employer to complete their tasks by any means necessary. That results in shortcuts that amount to negligence. Drivers are required to adhere to regulations involving time on the road, number of breaks, and weight of the load they carry. Under the law, a trucking company can be held liable for the negligence of its drivers.
