Truck Accident Lawyers In Wausau
The cars and trucks coming off the assembly line today are safer than at any time in history. While our vehicles have safety features our grandparents couldn’t have dreamed of, engineering advancement in automotive design is yet to effectively deal with the impact forces generated in an accident involving a tractor-trailer or semi-truck. Any driver or passenger who survives one is lucky, but luck doesn’t pay the medical bills, keep the lights on, or provide the resources necessary to overcome the financial and emotional challenges that follow after an accident.
To get the compensation you need from insurance companies unwilling to pay out your fair share, you’ll need a strong personal injury attorney on your side. At Nicolet Law Office, we provide compassionate support and aggressive advocacy for our clients. We will not rest until we have achieved an outcome that provides you with compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings and other accident-related damages. If a fair compensation can’t be achieved via settlement, we will not hesitate to assert your rights at trial.
Wausau Area Roads Are Not Immune From Danger
Wausau’s centralized location means that area highways always have trucks moving about. Unfortunately, these trucks don’t always mix well with cars and motorcycles. Some of the most heavily traveled trucking routes in our region include:
- Wisconsin 29
- Interstate 39
- U.S. Route 51
Causes Of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents occur for many reasons, but the top reason is the pressure placed on truckers to meet tight deadlines that often require violating restrictions on the number of hours they can drive without rest periods. Drowsy driving claims lives every year, padding the profits of trucking companies at the expense of public safety. Other causes of truck wrecks include:
- Equipment failure due to inadequate maintenance
- Substance abuse by truckers while driving, including the intake of alcohol and “uppers”
- Drivers’ distraction by smartphone and other technology
- Overloaded trailers and unsecured loads
- Reckless driving
