Minnesota Truck Accident Lawyer


There are a number of reasons why truck accidents occur on the roads. Many truck drivers are inexperienced, especially handling the slippery Minnesota weather conditions. Other truck drivers are exhausted from driving while others may be driving a vehicle that is not up to par. In some instances, reckless driving, speeding, disobeying the traffic signs, alcohol and/or drugs and distractions such as a cell phone may be to blame for a truck accident.

How Insurance Works

Insurance providers are meant to handle these types of accidents and ensure you are fully compensated for your losses. But this is rarely the case. While an insurance provider may fix your truck tires or replace the broken window, they most likely will not pay for the financial losses if the person dies or is seriously injured. There are medical expenses, loss of income, loss of quality of life and rehabilitation fees to worry about, not to mention the emotional strain the accident will have caused.

Who is to Blame?

No one wants to admit or accept blame for a trucking accident. At McEwen & Kestner, PLLC we will work with you to determine who should pay for this accident. In most instances, a trucking accident will be the fault of:

  • The truck driver – if the driver is speeding, drinking, reckless, distracted or driving poorly, then he may be to blame for the accident
  • The trucking company – if the driver has been overworked and is physically exhausted, then the trucking company may be to blame for mistreating their employees
  • The trucking manufacturing company – if the truck is found to be defective, then the manufacturing company may be the blame.
  • The truck mechanic – if the vehicle is found to be faulty then the truck mechanic may be to blame for not doing his job and ensuring the truck meets the correct safety standards on the road.

Whenever there is a commercial truck accident, the results are usually devastating. This is because commercial trucks are so much larger than the typical highway vehicle. They can literally plow over a smaller vehicle and anything else in its path.

“There is no doubt that Peter Kestner, along with the Attorney’s and Staff at McEwen & Kestner, PLLC are specialists in Auto Injury accidents! In 2010 I was involved in an auto accident, and required treatments in many different states. While I personally took care of many of the negations with the insurance company, I was completely uncomfortable with settling my case. None of the treatments could determine the cause of the semi-permanent damage to my shoulder due to the accident. There were no diagnoses, and nowhere to turn when it came time to settle. That’s when I began the search for a lawyer, and found McEwen and Kestner!
Their expertise made the experience hassle-free, hopeful and honest. They genuinely understood my pain and suffering. After giving them the name of the insurance company, the names of each doctor, and a little background information Peter took over! With a simple monthly check-in from me, a demand letter went out for a settlement in a matter of months.
I was blown away by the results! Within just 2 weeks of negotiation, Peter landed a settlement rate with the insurance company, while keeping me involved via quick 5-10 minute phone calls! The settlement amount was 90% more than I anticipated; I felt relieved, and adequately compensated.
Less than a month later, my check settlement check has processed through their office and is on its way to me! ”
