This morning, the driver of an SUV died when his vehicle collided with a semi-trailer on Industrial Boulevard in Minneapolis, Minnesota. No additional information was provided at the time this was written.
We were contacted recently by someone involved in another accident where a car was hit by a truck driver who was texting. This is just unconscionable. No one should text while driving, especially someone behind the wheel of a big truck weighing over 50,000 pounds.
Attorney Eric Hageman is a member of the American Association for Justice Truck Accident Litigation Group and has spoken at national seminars on truck accident cases. Eric has been awarded an AV-rating by Martindale-Hubbell, which is the highest rating for legal ability and ethics.
