Commercial Vehicle Accidents



Commercial vehicles from 18-wheeler flat bed trucks to delivery vans frequently travel throughout Wisconsin during all hours of the day. They are all too often rushing from one destination to another to meet a deadline and get their shipments delivered. Unfortunately, the drivers of these tractor-trailers do not always take into account their speed, the weather conditions, the condition of their rig, or other smaller vehicles on the road when in pursuit of making a timely delivery. Their negligence can often lead to an accident that has devastating results for anyone in their path.

Aggressive Accident Investigation and Case Construction

For over 30 years, we have been handling cases involving all types of commercial vehicles, such as:

  • Delivery truck accidents
  • Mail truck accidents
  • Semi tractor-trailer accidents
  • Local business vans en route to making repairs
  • Taxi cabs, buses, shuttle vans

Accidents involving commercial vehicles present a number of different components that make them more complex. First, the accident and injuries that often result are more severe because of the size and weight of the commercial vehicle involved. For instance, the impact may cause brain injuriesback injuries and spinal cord injuries that are long-lasting, require extensive medical treatment and permanently alter your entire life. We know how to properly value your claim taking into account pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other costs.

Personal injury cases arising out of collisions involving commercial vehicles may involve multiple parties that must be named as defendants, including the commercial vehicle driver, the company he or she works for as well as the company that owns the vehicle. As a result, the insurance issues that arise are quite technical in nature and require extensive legal knowledge and experience regarding how to make multiple claims on different types of policies using evidence arrived at through careful investigation, research of the crash, and knowledge of insurance regulations and policies.

Arcadia Delivery Truck Accidents Lawyer

La Crosse commercial vehicle accident attorney, Gregory J. Egan understands how to properly research and investigate collisions involving commercial vehicles. From recovering the vehicle’s electronic data recorder, downloading the data successfully, and to preserving the information contained on the black box and capturing its status properly, we know how to capture crucial evidence that can be vital to the value of your claim and proving liability.

This can also include maintenance records for the commercial vehicle, the driver’s history, proof of financial stability to operate a tractor-trailer and evidence of logbook violations showing that a driver may have exceeded the daily working hour limits leading up to the accident.

We know how to combine all of this information with any state or federal Department of Transportation (DOT) regulation infractions that may have occurred, such as weight, length, loading procedure or other violations that we unveil to build a strong case that proves liability and compensation. Also, we only charge a fee if we are successful in getting you justice and compensation.
