Truck Accident Attorneys In Eau Claire

The safest cars on the road are no match for a semi truck. When driven negligently, tractor-trailers function as indiscriminate weapons that tear apart entire families in seconds. Truck accidents frequently result in catastrophic injuries and deaths, leaving innocent people behind to pick up the pieces after their lives have been altered through no fault of their own.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a truck accident in Wisconsin, it’s important to realize that you face an uphill climb. In addition to rehabilitation and counseling to overcome the physical and emotional hurdles before you, the insurance companies are actively making an effort to prevent you from receiving the financial compensation you deserve for what you have been through at the hands of a negligent truck driver or trucking company. To get the resources you need to make things right, it will be crucial to have a proven personal injury lawyer asserting your rights.

Experienced, Local Representation For Eau Claire Semi-Truck Accidents

At Nicolet Law Office, S.C., in Eau Claire, we’re no strangers to the ins and outs of truck accident injury claims. We dedicate our practice to making sure the survivors of truck accidents have the financial compensation they need to put their lives back together. This includes negotiating settlements and pursuing personal injury litigation on behalf of those injured in accidents on Eau Claire-area highways such as:

  • I-94
  • US 12
  • US 53
  • WI 29
  • WI 312
  • WI 93
  • WI 37
  • WI 85

Our Scenic Bridges Can Be Dangerous

Being the “City of Bridges” doesn’t come without potential trouble. Bridges, overpasses and other elevated surfaces are often prone to icing during our long winters, even when other highways and surface streets remain dry. This creates a hazard that can result in collisions with trucks and other large commercial vehicles. Well-traveled bridges in the Eau Claire area include:

  • US 53 over the Eau Claire River
  • Lake Street over the Chippewa River
  • Madison Street over the Chippewa River
  • WI 312 over the Chippewa River, north of Dells Pond
  • Summit Avenue over the Chippewa River
  • US 12 over the Chippewa River
  • I-94 over the Chippewa River
  • River Prairie Drive over the Chippewa River

Causes Of Trucking Accidents In Eau Claire

It’s no secret that long stretches of uninterrupted pavement combined with tuckered drivers are a recipe for disaster. Located along I-94, there is a nearly constant stream of commercial vehicles driving through Eau Claire and surrounding area, resulting in a significant number of accidents. In addition to truck driver fatigue, the following factors frequently contribute to trucking accidents:

  • Equipment failure (improper maintenance)
  • Drug and/or alcohol use
  • Distracted driving (email, cellphones, texting, etc.)
  • Unsecured trailer loads
  • Speeding or reckless driving

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of negligence by a truck driver or trucking company, you can rely on our experienced Eau Claire injury lawyers to pursue the full compensation you deserve. We operate on a contingency fee basis, which means you will pay no attorney fees unless we obtain compensation for you via settlement or jury award.

Let Us Level The Field For You And Your Family

The insurance company will work overtime to stack the deck against you and your loved ones after an accident leaves you in dire straits. The person who calls you from the insurance company may be perfectly friendly to you, but you must remember that the insurance company views your lost wages, medical expenses and other costs as budget line items that result in red ink. To turn a profit, they must cut corners or deny you the care and financial resources you need when you need it the most.

We know the tactics and tricks they will deploy and are prepared to assert your rights in settlement negotiations or, if a settlement cannot be reached jury trial. Our only interest is making sure you and your family have what you need to put your life back together after a trucking accident. Call our Eau Claire office today at 866-663-8774 or contact us via email to schedule a free case evaluation about your Eau Claire trucking accident.
