If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus, semi truck, or trucking accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Here, you will find information about bus, semi truck, and trucking accidents, as well as information about how to file a claim.

Bus, semi truck, and trucking accidents can be devastating. These accidents can cause serious injuries and even death. If you have been injured in a bus, semi, or trucking accident, you need to seek legal help right away. The truck accident lawyers at Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz law firm can help you file a claim or lawsuit and get the compensation you deserve.
There are many factors that can cause bus, semi truck, and trucking accidents. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include driver error, negligence, and road conditions. If you have been injured in a bus, semi, or trucking accident, you may be able to file a claim against the driver, the trucking company, or both to obtain maximum compensation covering medical bills, punitive damages, and other expenses.

Bus Crashes

Buses are a popular form of transportation in the United States. We put our children on school buses every day and trust they will be transported safely. Unfortunately, crashes involving buses can have devastating consequences due to the number of passengers on board, the lack of efficient restraints, and the propensity of buses to experience a rollover in a crash.

To improve bus safety, we need to better understand what causes these crashes. Some of the most common causes of bus crashes include driver error, wet roads, icy roads, and blown tires.

Driver Error

Driver error is the leading cause of bus crashes. This can include anything from distracted driving to driver fatigue and falling asleep at the wheel. Drivers need to be aware of the dangers of bus crashes and take precautions to avoid them. This includes staying alert and paying attention to the road, obeying speed limits, and not driving while impaired.

Semi Truck/Trucking Crashes

Semi truck accidents are often more serious than other types of car accidents, due to the weight and size of the vehicles and tractor trailers. These crashes can cause severe personal injuries or death. There are several factors that can lead to a semi truck crash, such as inattentive or distracted driving, fatigued truck drivers, unsafe driving for conditions, improper trailer loading, or other mechanical failures of the truck or trailer. When hiring a lawyer to handle your truck accident case, you need someone who has specialized experience in handling commercial vehicle cases and has the financial resources to fully develop your case.

Trucking companies and their insurance companies vigorously defend these cases because there is often a lot at stake due to the severity of these crashes. You need a tenacious advocate on your side to counter the steps the trucking and insurance companies will take immediately following a crash. With each day that passes after a truck crash, critical evidence may be lost, altered, or destroyed which can negatively impact the chances of a successful outcome for the injured person.
Semi drivers and trucking companies are controlled by specialized federal and state laws which control how they operate. You need a truck accident attorney who understands these laws and knows how commercial truck drivers and companies need to operate to keep themselves and other drivers safe. If drivers and their companies followed the safety rules in place, many innocent people would not be injured or taken too early from their families.
The experienced trucking attorneys at personal injury law firm Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz have handled semi truck crash cases in Minnesota and across the country. Our attorneys have demonstrated the tenacity required to conduct in-depth discovery into the driver’s history and the trucking company’s hiring, training, and supervision of its drivers. We will spare no expense in hiring the proper experts to prove that the trucking company and its driver are liable and to fully demonstrate the damage caused by the crash.

Our attorneys have obtained multiple verdicts and settlements totaling in excess of $10 million on behalf of their clients injured in semi truck crashes. These include a $7 million verdict for the wrongful death of a 42-year-old father who was killed in a crash near Yellville, Arkansas, after his vehicle was struck by a semi truck—Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz attorney Jed Chronic was part of the trial team.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a semi truck crash, it is critical to contact an experienced personal injury attorney immediately to fully investigate your claim and preserve critical evidence.
