According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2008, one out of every nine traffic fatalities resulted from a collision involving a large truck. If you have been injured in a truck accident, or if a loved one has been killed, call Simon Law Firm immediately.
These cases can be overwhelming and quite complicated, but our personal injury attorneys have the skills to successfully stand up for the rights of those who have been injured, or even killed, in truck accidents. Large trucks can cause serious injury when they collide with other vehicles on the road. Our truck accident lawyers are here to answer any questions that you may have as they relate to a serious truck or auto accident.
The interstate highways in and around Northeast Wisconsin carry extremely high concentrations of 18-wheelers and long-haul trucks. Not every driver or owner of these large trucks is in compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which limit the number of hours a trucker may drive, require rest stops, and provide for regular inspections of the trucks and their safety equipment. We will conduct an investigation of the accident to determine the cause and who was at fault. A skilled attorney is essential to any accident case, particularly any case involving a large truck. We go to work on your case immediately, analyzing every angle of an accident, working to uncover any type of negligence which may have occurred.
Some of the different forms of negligence which could result in a serious truck accident include:
- Brake failure or other defective truck parts
- Insufficient sleep for the driver, resulting in inattentive driving
- Speeding or other reckless driving
- Inadequate maintenance on the truck
- Improperly secured cargo
- Permit violations
Our job is to help victims of truck accidents get the compensation that can help them to cover their costs while they struggle to cope with a life-altering injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, call Simon Law Firm for help. The truck company will likely have investigators at the scene of the accident protecting their interests. You need to have any attorney who is on your side, protecting the interests of you and your family. Contact us for a free consultation. Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning we charge nothing for our services unless we receive a monetary award for you.
