Let Our Truck Accident Attorneys in Minnesota Seek the Compensation You Deserve

When you or a loved one suffers injuries after a crash with a truck that was not your fault, you may believe that you deserve compensation. However, you may not be quite sure how to proceed. The insurance company’s representative may call you with a number of promises about what kind of settlement you will have and how quickly you can receive your money after you answer a few questions.

What usually happens, though, is the few questions turn into dozens of questions during multiple phone calls. The promise of a quick settlement goes out the window, as the insurer seems more interested in having you answer the same sets of questions about the accident and about your injuries over and over again. It seems like the insurer is trying to trick you into changing your story. These are not the actions of someone who has your best interests in mind. When you hire the Minnesota truck accident lawyers from Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, you can be certain that we will always be on your side and represent your interests. We do not care whether the compensation you receive is good for the insurance company. We only care about whether it’s a good deal for you. We stand up for your rights from start to finish.

Victims in accidents often wonder whether they can afford to hire our Minnesota truck accident attorneys. The answer is yes! We offer a free initial consultation. When you hire us, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not charge you anything unless we win a settlement for you, so you have no risk.

How Our Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyers Can Help with Your Case

Because of the severity of the injuries that often occur in crashes with trucks, these cases become complex in a hurry. Having a truck accident law firm on your side that has experience battling insurance companies on behalf of victims is vital when your medical bills are going to be significant and when you may have permanent injuries.

At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, our team of truck accident lawyers in Minnesota knows how insurance companies operate. We take pride in standing up for the rights of victims. For-profit insurance companies only care about the bottom line. The less they must pay out to you in a settlement amount, the more they can make in profit. It’s our job to prove why you deserve the largest possible amount we are requesting in a settlement by investigating the case and showing the reality of what your life will be like as you must live with these injuries.

Trust Our Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyers to Battle the Insurer on Your Behalf

When the insurance company tells you that it will help you with your settlement, you should be skeptical. Ask yourself this: If the insurance company is actually trying to help you receive the settlement you deserve, why does it have several adjusters, accident recreation experts, and lawyers working on your case? These experts often are going to seek information that downplays your injuries or disproves your explanation of the circumstances surrounding the accident.

Rather than trusting what the accident recreation experts say happened in the crash, you should trust your instincts and your version of the events. After all, you lived through the nightmare of being hit by the truck. You were there; the accident recreation expert was not. Our Minnesota truck accident lawyers will listen to your description of the events, and we then will work to find facts that back up your claims.

When you hire our truck accident attorneys in Minnesota, we take over all correspondence with the insurance company for you. This is an important service we offer, as it gives you time to focus on your recovery, rather than on dealing with an insurer that is trying to trick you into a “gotcha” moment.

Our Team Can Work to Recover Multiple Types of Damages for You

The team at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law will fight to help you win compensation for both direct and indirect losses you may have.

Our Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyers Will Seek a Pain and Suffering Award

A key aspect of your settlement amount is an award for pain and suffering. This money compensates you for pain you had in the aftermath of the injury accident, as well as for any pain that may linger in your life.

Suffering may relate to any emotional trauma you have after the crash, such as nightmares about the accident. Determining the right amount to seek for pain and suffering is challenging, but our Minnesota truck accident lawyers will use our experience to determine the fairest amount to request.

Let Our Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyers Fight for Reimbursement of Your Medical Bills and Lost Wages

You should not have to pay your medical costs after an accident with a truck that was not your fault. We will seek reimbursement for your medical expenses immediately after the crash, as well as for future costs.

If you miss work while recovering, we can seek money to compensate you for these lost wages. If you cannot work in the future because of the lingering effects of the injuries, we can seek money to help you with future missed wages, too.

Our Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyers Keep Your Case Moving Forward

One tactic that insurance companies often try to use in injury cases like this is to delay reaching a settlement with you. When you as a victim are going through a truck accident injury case for the first time, you may think you can trust the insurance company’s explanation of how the case will work. However, without knowledge of state statutes, you could find yourself forfeiting your rights to seek damages in the case by not being proactive and protecting your rights.

Both Minnesota and Wisconsin give you a limited amount of time to initiate a lawsuit in a personal injury case. In Minnesota, Statute 541.05 gives victims up to six years to file a lawsuit. In Wisconsin, meanwhile, Statute 893.54 gives victims up to three years to file a lawsuit. What insurance companies may try to do is string you along with false hope and promises until the statute of limitation passes. You then lose your right to file a lawsuit, almost certainly leaving you with little recourse other than to accept any settlement offer the insurer makes to you.

If you hire our Minnesota truck accident lawyers to represent you, you can rest assured that we will not miss any deadlines related to the statute of limitations. Understand that the act of filing a lawsuit simply notifies the insurance company that we are protecting your right to sue for damages. It does not mean that your case will end up in court. After filing the lawsuit, we can continue to negotiate with the insurance company, seeking to agree to a settlement amount outside of a trial. If the insurer refuses to negotiate in good faith, though, we are ready to represent you and tell your story in a court case.

Questions Clients Commonly Ask Our Minnesota Truck Accident Attorneys

Truck Accident Injury FAQs

Clients who hire us often are going through an injury accident for the first time. Understandably, they have many questions for us. It’s important for us to answer your questions honestly and thoroughly, so you have all the information you need to make decisions on how to proceed in the case. The following questions that clients frequently ask us – and our answers – can give you insight on how our team will handle your case.

Can your Minnesota truck accident attorneys help me recover the truck driver’s video of the crash?

Many semi-trucks track video and telemetry data that show how the driver was operating the vehicle, and this data can help us investigate how the crash happened. Our Minnesota truck accident attorneys can force the trucking company to give us a copy of the telemetry data as part of our investigation.

Can your truck accident lawyers in Minnesota help me if I believe the truck driver exceeded driving hour limits?

If our truck accident lawyers in Minnesota can show that the driver exceeded the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) limits on hours of driving, this can be a key component of our case. We can use this violation to show negligence on the part of the truck driver, helping you move toward the settlement you deserve.

Does it affect my case if the trucking company fires the driver after the crash?

Firing the driver should not affect your case, as the trucking company can still be held liable, as can the driver. In fact, if our Minnesota truck accident lawyers believe the firing was related to the driver’s actions in your accident case, we may be able to use this as evidence in showing that negligence occurred in the accident.

How much money can your truck accident attorneys in Minnesota win for me?

We do not promise our clients that our truck accident attorneys in Minnesota will win a certain amount for them, because making these kinds of promises is unethical behavior. However, we do promise to seek the highest possible settlement for you, just like we did for several of our past clients for whom we won six-figure settlements after truck crashes.

Can your Minnesota truck accident lawyers help if my loved one died after a truck crash?

Our Minnesota truck accident lawyers can help with cases like this, seeking to prove that the negligence of the truck driver, trucking company, or another party resulted in the fatality. As wrongful death lawyers, we fight hard to help your family receive the awards you deserve to have.

Our team believes strongly in keeping our clients informed on the status of the case at every step. Being completely honest with you is the only way we can serve you to the best of our ability. We work with you as a team to decide what steps to take in the case, which is why it’s important to keep you informed.
