Tractor-trailer Accidents – What You Need to Know!
We have all seen the images on television. There is a traffic jam on the interstate because of an accident involving a tractor-trailer. Maybe the driver was tired and didn’t notice traffic slowing down in front of him. Maybe the car was in his “blind spot” when he tried to change lanes. Maybe he was talking on his cell phone. Whatever the reason, when an accident is caused by an 18-wheeler, there is the potential for life threatening injuries. Most cars don’t stand a chance when hit by one of these gargantuan vehicles. The occupants inside the car don’t usually fare much better. Broken bones, brain injury and damaged organs could result. If you are incredibly lucky, you could receive injuries that are extremely painful and require extensive medical care. I don’t even want to think about the injuries to a motorcyclist. If you were involved in an accident with a semi-truck, would you know what your rights are? Who is going to pay for your medical bills? How about your lost wages? Are you entitled to anything for pain and suffering? Would you know the proper venue to make a claim? What if the truck driver was from Minnesota? You were driving near your home. Where do you file suit? Is the truck driver’s employer liable for his negligence? Our firm has been representing the victims of automobile, truck and motorcycle crashes for over 30 years.
