Truck & Motorcycle Accidents & Injuries
Pursuing compensation for your injuries in Minnesota
Anytime there is an accident or collision involving two or more vehicles the potential for injury is enormous. When the two vehicles involved are dramatically different in size, the potential for injury increases exponentially. Truck and motorcycle accidents are typically very serious because the difference in the size of vehicles involved tend to cause far greater property damage and personal injuries.

Minnesota Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Minnesota’s roadways and unique scenery make it a great place for motorcyclists to enjoy. However, damage to roads as a result of freezing and thawing, as well as the fact that drivers go up to 6 months at a time without having to share the road with motorcyclists can also make it a very dangerous place to ride a motorcycle.
Todd Young is more than just an accident and injury lawyer, he is an avid motorcyclist. It’s common to see his motorcycle parked outside of his office in Roseville. Working with an attorney who has a first hand understanding of the challenges and dangers of riding a motorcycle is a great advantage to someone who has been been hurt. As an experienced attorney and motorcycle rider, Todd has the experience and expertise to ensure that your case ends with the best possible outcome.
Semi-Truck & 18-Wheeler Accidents
Semi Truck & 18-Wheeler Accidents can be more complex than car accidents because there are far more regulations around driving commercial vehicles than there are for driving a car. Some of the issues involved with semi truck accidents may involve:
- Was the truck driver following state and federal guidelines for how many hours can be driven in a day?
- Was the semi truck or commercial vehicle property loaded and maintained?
- Was the driver of the semi truck sober, alert, and following all commercial traffic laws and regulations?
- Did the semi truck fail to stay in its lane, signal a turn or lane change or was the truck going over the speed limit?
In any car accident, it’s critical to ensure that the compensation you receive from the insurance companies (there are cases where you will recover from both your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company) covers all of your injuries, lost time at work and pain and suffering. When you are in an accident involving a semi truck, the injuries involved, time of recovery and damage to property are likely more more severe than in an auto accident. For that reason, it’s even more important that you work with an attorney to ensure that the insurance companies are playing fair.
Whether you were involved in a car, motorcycle, semi-truck, pedestrian or bicycle accident, you can call the Todd Young Law Office for a free consultation to understand your options. Before you sign anything from the insurance company, make sure that you are getting the compensation you are entitled to.
