You could be experiencing nightmares, flashbacks and a fear of driving on top of the physical injuries sustained.

Commercial Truck Accident Lawsuits
Commercial truck accidents happen all the time. Poor weather and road conditions, inexperience and fatigue and negligent driving all play an important role in the number of trucking accidents on the roads. Any commercial truck accident comes with a lot of questions – why did the accident occur? Was the driver intoxicated, overtired, distracted, inexperienced? Was the commercial truck properly maintained and serviced? Were the road conditions safe? Who is responsible for your serious injuries and devastating loss?

All commercial truck drivers in Minnesota are required to purchase some level of insurance on top of their licensing. If you are facing a commercial truck accident, then the insurance agencies will most certainly be involved. They will most likely assess the accident to determine the financial damage. In general, there are two parts to any truck accident claim – property damage and personal injury.
It is important to understand that when dealing with any commercial truck accident that the insurance agency does not always know best. They do not have your best interest at heart – their only concern is a quick payout that will most likely not cover all your financial, emotional and physical suffering. While you may be compensated for your damaged car, you will most likely be suffering severe injuries that the insurance agency most likely will not consider. When facing any commercial truck accident, it is important that you speak to a qualified Minnesota truck accident attorney about your legal options.
