Defective Equipment/Brake Failure

Minnesota Semi-Truck Brake Failure Lawyer

Commercial trucks have to be properly maintained so that equipment failure does not occur. However, equipment failure is still a common cause of truck accidents. After an accident occurs, the trucking company, state troopers, and others may initiate an investigation. This is something that is important to the victim or the family of someone killed in a truck accident. It is also important for you to have the appropriate legal representation so that you can obtain justice in the matter. With the help of your Minneapolis truck accident lawyer, evidence can be gathered that will enable you to file a personal injury lawsuit for compensation that will pay for the current and future damages that the accident caused you.

At Hunegs, LeNeave & Kvas, Attorneys At Law, we have represented the victims of truck accidents and their families in both Minnesota and Nebraska. We are a nationally recognized firm and have dealt with some high profile cases throughout the Midwest and the U.S. Because of the experience that we have obtained through our 75-year history, our skill, and our resources, we know how to obtain results.

Holding The Responsible Parties Accountable

In addition to securing compensation for you, it is very important to hold the responsible parties accountable. Defective equipment can be an issue with the manufacturer or it can be a matter of poor maintenance. Failing brakes, defective tires, missing lights or reflectors, and defective steering are just some of the issues that can lead to very serious or fatal accidents.

If we handle your truck accident case, you can have confidence that we look deeply at the evidence when we investigate the accident. With the information we gather, we are able to prepare a strong case and hold the responsible parties accountable. An early investigation can make a major difference in a case, so calling your attorney as soon as possible is very important.

Vigorously Defending Your interests

We vigorously defend your interests because we pursue the trucking company or any other responsible parties for their negligence. Examples of the negligence that they may have exercised include:

  • The truck driver didn’t notice or report evidence that indicated the brakes or another mechanical element was defective.
  • The manufacturer made faulty brakes or the installer installed them wrong.
  • The maintenance service provider may not have noticed or corrected truck defects when they serviced the vehicle.

Your Minnesota truck accident attorney will uncover what happened and build a strong case so that compensation can be secured through settlement or trial. That way you can focus on moving past the accident and not the financial damages that were done to you by no fault of your own.
