There are many types of accidents involving vehicles and commercial carriers of all kinds. These carriers, such as trains and buses, carry goods and passengers throughout our country and in our metro areas. They share the road with other cars and trucks and other motor vehicles. The experienced Duluth vehicle accident lawyers at Scholle Law handle all facets of vehicle accident cases with skill and compassion. We treat victims and families who are suffering due to a collision with a common carrier such as a train, bus or light rail with the respect they deserve. At the offices of Scholle Law, our legal team’s goal is to lift the burden of handling the legal details of serious vehicle accidents, including the catastrophic injury or death resulting from them.
The vehicle accident lawyers of Duluth that make up the Scholle Law legal team have represented clients in a wide range of accidents and injuries over two decades. Although motor vehicles have more safety features than they have in the past, the dangers on the road have actually increased. Various behaviors that have caused these new dangers include the ongoing issues with distracted driving.
The dangers of cell phone use, emailing, texting and simply talking on the phone while holding it, are all impacting our highway safety, injuries and fatalities. Statistics show that drivers who engage in distracted driving can cause serious accidents and injuries. It takes longer for larger vehicles to stop. In recent years some accidents have involved those responsible for common carriers, like train engineers, becoming distracted with tragic results. A heavy vehicle that collides with another vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist, can cause extremely serious injuries. Some of these injuries can be fatal. Studies show that the time it takes for a large vehicle to stop is several seconds longer than smaller, lighter vehicles. The distance involved is also longer than smaller vehicles. This means that a distracted or an aggressive operator can cause a fatal or serious injury to others.

Motor vehicle crashes happen every day on highways and rural roads. The can include trucks, buses, light rail and other vehicles. Although trains are still used to take some cargo interstate, trucks are also often used to move products from place to place. Any vehicle that is carrying cargo can be more dangerous due to its weight. Buses carrying passengers can also be very heavy and have difficulty stopping or slowing down. Some of these vehicles do not have seat belts and serious crashes can catapult passengers out of windows and doors. Many such accidents have occurred in the recent past giving rise to calls for new laws to require seat belts in buses.
