When a pedestrian or car is hit by a semi-truck or any commercial truck in Minnesota, usually it is a significant accident that often results in serious, sometimes catastrophic, injuries. Before you talk to an insurance company, talk to a serious truck accident lawyer at Sieben Edmunds Miller in Mendota Heights and Eagan.
You only have one opportunity to be compensated fairly for damage to your vehicle, any injuries you suffered, the medical care you need now and might require in the future, rehabilitation help, and the pain you are enduring. Your family is also suffering because while you are recovering, they won’t be able to enjoy things with you as they once did.
At Sieben Edmunds Miller, our experienced semi-truck and commercial vehicle lawyers understand the trucking industry – and the insurance industry – as well as knowing the many different types of compensation you may be entitled to receive. The initial consultation is always free and you will never pay attorney’s fees unless we obtain compensation for you.
Fighting for Fair Compensation for Victims of Commercial Truck Accidents
The moment you are in an accident with a commercial truck, its insurance company will spring into action. You need to, as well.
The insurer will hire investigators, gather information on everything from the police report to the trucker’s maintenance log, and interview the driver who hit you. They do this to collect evidence that will build their defense. The insurance company’s team of lawyers will take steps to protect their client’s interest. And one of their first steps may be to contact you and make a settlement offer.
With all that weight defending the trucker, you need your own semi-trailer and commercial truck accident lawyer protecting you. By working with a commercial truck accident lawyer from Sieben Edmunds Miller, you level the playing field. Once you have a lawyer, the insurance company and its attorneys are not allowed to contact you or try to sweet-talk you into accepting their minimal offer. We know that whenever a commercial truck is in an accident and hurts somebody, there are often multiple parties involved:
The trucking company which is required to keep the vehicle in good working order.
The truck driver who must have a valid commercial license and not drive more than the regulated allowed number of hours.
The insurance company covering the trucking company, which is responsible for covering your medical bills, salary that you lost because you were away from work, and your pain and suffering.
The legal team of the insurance company whose only goal is to minimize the financial exposure from the truck accident claim.
But you are just you. You have things on your mind other than dealing with all of those people.
Sieben Edmunds Miller Commercial Truck Accident Lawyers Are Your Ally
When you hire one of our experienced semi-truck accident lawyers we are your ally and will deal with the complex and complicated process of conducting our own investigation on your behalf to determine who was responsible for the crash. Often, more than one entity is liable for your injuries:
The truck driver
The truck driver’s employer
The owner of the truck
The company leasing the truck
The owner of an attached trailer
The company that made the truck or trailer and components such as the braking system
To determine which parties are liable, or partially liable, your Sieben Edmunds Miller lawyer launches a thorough investigation on your behalf.
For example, we’ll review camera footage from the truck and traffic cameras as well as police reports. We’ll interview witnesses, people who work for the trucking company, and other individuals who had contact with the truck before the accident. We will go through your medical records and speak with the medical staff. Finally, we will meet with experts to reconstruct the accident, if necessary.
