Truck Accident Attorneys In Duluth
Automobile safety has come a long way in the past few decades, but brilliant engineers still have yet to find a way to overcome the physics involved in a truck accident. When a negligently driven tractor-trailer strikes a typical consumer car or truck, the result can tear an entire family apart in seconds. These wrecks frequently result in catastrophic, life-altering injuries and deaths. The people left behind in the aftermath face an uphill climb to get the financial resources they need to make things right.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in a truck accident in the Twin Ports of Duluth and Superior, you can benefit from the help of a skilled personal injury lawyer. In addition to the physical, psychological and emotional challenges you face after an accident, you face the slow walking and game playing of the insurance companies. They’ll do everything in their power to get a quick settlement that is in their best interest and, barring that, make things unbearable in hopes that you will eventually give up on getting the financial compensation you need for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings and other accident-related damages.

Causes Of Trucking Accidents In Duluth And Superior
Regardless of the cause, truck accidents are extremely destructive. Drowsy truck drivers are responsible for many crashes as they cut corners (and sleep) to meet the aggressive deadlines set by the home office. There are a handful of additional factors that are responsible for a disproportionate amount of the rest of the truck accidents that take place on Minnesota and Wisconsin highways:
- Improper maintenance (equipment failure)
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Technology distractions (phones, laptops, etc.)
- Unsecured loads and overloaded trailers
- Speeding and/or reckless driving
If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of such negligence by a truck driver or trucking company, you can rely on our experienced Duluth personal injury lawyers to obtain the full compensation you need. We handle personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid until we secure a settlement or jury award for you.
