The large tractor trailers and 18-wheelers we see every day have become an accepted part of our life on the road. These trucks are important to our economy because they transport goods in and out of the state, bringing in much needed imports from other parts of the country. However, when you are involved in a collision with a truck, this everyday sight can become a complicated legal matter that could leave you in dire financial straits. These cases are often legally more complex than a collision that involves two individually owned vehicles. Often, with these large vehicles, there is a big business with an equally large insurance company looking out for their own best interest. In events like these, it is imperative that you seek out the help of an experienced legal team whose expertise lies in the ins and outs of Minnesota trucking law.
There are some important first steps that you must take in the event that you are in an accident with a large truck. The first, and arguably most critical, step that you must take is that you get the medical attention that you need. Documentation of any and all injuries sustained in the accident will help your personal injury attorney at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyminnesota.com to build a strong and strategic case in your favor.
After your collision, you may be approached by insurance adjusters representing the other motor vehicle that was in the collision. It is important to remember that you do NOT have to accept the first offer made. You are well within your rights to discuss any monetary numbers with the adjuster and instead, we encourage you to seek out legal counsel so that you know what all your options are as far as your economic compensation is concerned.
The personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyminnesota.com will seek out to get damages pertaining to:
- Loss of wages
- Personal property damage
- Pain and suffering
