It’s not uncommon to see semi-trucks all day and night on I-94 and 35W/E. For the most part, conscientious owners maintain those trucks and professional drivers practice safe procedures when driving them. The pressures of getting a load delivered on time, can sometimes, cause some to skimp on safe practices. This can put you and your family in jeopardy. If you’ve been injured in a truck accident due to negligence, the attorneys of Bye, Goff & Rohde are here to help.
Trucking Demands Safety
The powerful semi-truck can carry heavy loads at highway speeds for hours on end. Those machines demand their owners and drivers maintain a constant attention to safety. If you’ve been in a truck accident, you know that even the most cautious drivers can find themselves in a situation where a collision with a truck is unavoidable.
Some examples of carelessness leading to truck accidents are:
- Driver fatigue
- Improperly balanced loads
- Reckless driving
- Driving while talking or texting on a phone
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Manufacturing errors of truck parts
Results of carelessness or inattention on the truck driver’s part can lead to life-changing consequences for the accident victim and their families.
The Possible Damages You Can Collect for a Truck Accident in Minnesota
Lingering injuries, lifetime disability, and even death are often the result when an automobile is in an accident with a truck. Not only was your vehicle severely damaged or even totaled, but you may also face a long road of recovery from injury. High medical bills, prescription medication, lost wages from time missed from work, and ongoing pain and suffering are just some of the consequences you may experience after your accident.
