Biomechanics of Car Accidents

Car accidents can involve a head-on collision, a side-swipe, a rear-end collision, a roll-over or an impact with a fixed object such as a bridge abutment.  The large majority of personal injuries resulting from car accidents are the result of a “rear-ender,” where the vehicle occupied by the victims is struck from behind by another vehicle. Rear-ender collisions often involve a “whiplash” injury to the neck and brain. You may learn more about the connection between cervical and brain injuries here. Hundreds of biomechanical studies have proven that the forces generated by the collision are greater to the human body than they are to the vehicle itself because of the “whiplash” phenomenon.  The Car Accident Lawyers understand that basic concept and utilize their knowledge and understanding to the success of their cases.

Car Accidents Involving Large Commercial Trucks. 

Some car accidents involve a collision with a large commercial truck. The Car Accident Lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team say, “Big Trucks, Big Crashes, Big Injuries, Big Settlements!!!” There are many special state and federal laws and rules that control the operation of large trucks. Proof of the violation of these laws can be a valuable asset to any car accident case involving a large commercial truck, either a semi-truck/trailer combination or a large commercial truck.  The Schmidt Salita Car Accident Lawyers know and understand these special commercial trucking rules and regulations. 

Causes of Car Accidents

The Car Accident Lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team have seen it all – or so we think. We have represented the families of people killed in car accidents because the at-fault driver was texting and engaged in distracted driving; or where the at-fault driver was drunk, or on drugs; falling asleep/drowsy driving; or drivers just plain not paying attention.

Minnesota law allows for compensation to the decedent’s “next of kin” who survive but suffer the loss of their loved one.

Contingent Fee Arrangements Available

The Car Accident Lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team understand that the victims of personal injury are often dealing with financial issues due to medical billscar damage, and lost wages and earnings. Most do not have the financial resources to pay for a lawyer on an hourly basis – especially for a really good lawyer. The answer to this dilemma is the contingent fee contract where the lawyer doesn’t get paid by the hour. Instead, the lawyer gets paid on a “commission basis” like a real estate agent, as a percentage of the settlement produced. The Schmidt Salita Law Team offers contingent fee contracts in most cases.
