Fatal Truck Accidents

Minnesota & Nebraska Deadly Trucking Accident Lawyers

When a commercial truck is the cause of an accident, it is usually other motorists on the road that pay the price. While truck drivers tend to survive the accidents that they are involved in, those in other vehicles either suffer from catastrophic injuries or they are killed. Many individuals die from their injuries immediately after the accident or in the days, weeks, or even months after the accident.

At Hunegs, LeNeave & Kvas, we have a 75-year history that we are able to put to work for you. We have represented the families of fatal truck accident victims and recovered compensation for them that pays for funeral costs, medical bills, loss of support, and other damages. With the help of an experienced truck accident lawyer, you can obtain the results that you need to move on past the effects of the accident.

Aggressively Pursuing Negligence In Fatal Truck Accidents

When negligence has occurred, we aggressively pursue it. This means that we thoroughly investigate the cause of the crash, the damages that were done, and how much compensation is necessary to cover all of the damages done to you and your family. That way you are able to cover the expenses that have resulted from the accident. We have found that some of the common causes of fatal truck accidents include:

  • Hiring drivers with poor driving records
  • Hiring unqualified drivers
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Drivers who fail to take their mandated rest breaks
  • Improper maintenance
  • Overloaded trucks or unsecured loads
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Unsafe passing
  • Drinking and driving

A wrongful death case stemming from a fatal truck accident is about achieving justice. While nothing can bring back a lost loved one, the driver and any other responsible parties can be held accountable for their actions. The survivors also receive the compensation that they need to move forward financially.
