We Work to Prevent Two Serious Trucking Accident Risks

The risk of overlooking a source of compensation:

A truck crash may entitle injured parties to compensation from a number of insurance policies: Car insurance policies covering the passengers, driver of the car or other members of their families

Insurance covering the truck driver, the trucking company or the company that owned or loaded the tractor trailer, including if truck driver negligence or failure to properly train a driver occurred.

A defective product claim against the manufacturer of a defective tire or brakes
Third parties, including bartenders who serve drunk driversWhen you call us, our lawyers will immediately begin an intensive investigation into factors contributing to the truck accident and identify available sources of compensation.

The risk of undervaluing your claim:

Brain injuries, paralysis, and other serious injuries require extensive medical treatment that can have life-changing consequences. Not only will these expenses quickly exhaust the limits of your own insurance policy but insurance companies routinely undervalue injury and wrongful death claims.Our Minneapolis truck accident lawyers have decades of experience as well as access to well-respected medical, life-care and economic experts. With these experts help, our lawyers will calculate the full value of losses resulting from the truck wreck. They will then present a compelling argument to insurance adjustors or a jury seeking full monetary compensation for your injuries.

You Deserve Just Compensation
