Minneapolis Truck Accident Lawyers Fighting For You
It is safer than ever to hit the road in a car or truck in the Twin Cities. Automotive design, safety features and traffic control systems have all made vast improvements in recent decades. Unfortunately, this is cold comfort for truck accident victims or the loved ones of people who have lost their lives in collisions with semi trucks and other commercial vehicles.
Trucks are big enough, are heavy enough and move fast enough to overcome even the best safety equipment today’s cars offer. Entire families can be torn apart in mere seconds in a truck accident. The people left behind with catastrophic injuries and medical expenses face an uphill climb to get the financial compensation they need to put their lives back together.
If you or a loved one in Minneapolis or Twin Cities suburbs has been hurt in a truck accident, it is in your best interest to seek the advice and representation of a proven personal injury lawyer. You can rely on the attorneys of Nicolet Law Office, to stand up for your rights and to make sure the insurance companies don’t injure you for a second time as you seek compensation for damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
One Of The Midwest’s Trucking Hubs
Minneapolis’s location at the intersection of the Mississippi River and two major interstates makes it a natural transportation hub. That means there are plenty of trucks making stops in and passing through Minneapolis on their way to and from ports, shipping centers, and warehouses in the Midwest and around the country. Some of the routes most traveled by 18-wheelers in the Minneapolis area include:
- Interstate 35W
- Interstate 94
- Interstate 394
- Interstate 694
- MN 55
- MN 77 (Cedar Avenue)
Common Causes Of Truck Accidents In Minneapolis
Truck accidents frequently result in catastrophic spinal cord and brain injuries regardless of the cause. Sadly, many truck accidents are the result of negligence and therefore entirely preventable. Driving while drowsy is the most prominent cause of truck accidents, heading up a list of factors, including:
- Inadequate maintenance
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Distracted driving
- Overweight trailers
- Unsecured cargo
- Reckless driving
