Truck Accidents On The Rise

Cory P. Whalen - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyDecember 07, 2016

The transportation industry logs over 400 billion miles per year!  Fatal truck accidents are on the rise; happening nearly 11 times every single day in this country on average, and killing nearly 4,000 people each year, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. 

On top of that, more than 100,000 people are injured every year in truck crashes. That's as bad as if a commuter jet crashed every single week of the year, killing everyone on board. And the numbers have been getting worse: Truck-crash fatalities have increased since 2009. If you or a loved one have been injured or killed as a result of a truck accident, you need an experienced truck accident attorney.  

When a trucking accident takes place, the trucking company and its lawyers immediately investigate and secure documentation from the truck’s on-board computer system.  The trucking industry can afford to hire expensive lawyers to contact and influence witnesses and prepare to deprive you of your legal entitlements.  Truck accident cases are expensive and complicated.  You need an experienced truck accident attorney and advocate. 

Here at SiebenCarey, Cory Whalen has prosecuted trucking cases for injury victims in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Canada and throughout the United States. Contact Cory Whalen if you’ve been injured in a trucking crash.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

When someone asks me to refer them to a personal injury lawyer, I immediately give them Jim Carey’s name and contact information at SiebenCarey in Minneapolis. Jim is more than a top-rated, expert personal injury attorney, he is an empathetic and compassionate listener. He sees people, not simply case files. He has represented my friends well by sincerely caring about the immediate and lasting effects that injuries from car accidents, negligence or other circumstances have had on their lives.
