Truck Accidents



La Crosse Truck Driver Negligence Attorneys

Commercial truck drivers rush through our cities, down our interstates, along state highways, and state and county roads with the goal of completing their deliveries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, their haste and size often lead to serious accidents.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a tractor-trailer accident caused by a truck driver’s negligence, we will work hard to help you get compensation for your past and future pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other costs. Contact us today to learn more during a free personal injury or wrongful death case consultation.

Immediate Action Is Necessary in Truck Accident Cases

There are two crucial pieces of evidence in a commercial big rig crash. One is the truck driver’s log. It gives important information about where and how long the driver had been working, the driver’s alertness, training and attention to commercial truck maintenance. The other is the electronic control module (black box), which records speed and braking action and other pertinent data prior to, and at the time of, a collision.

Immediate action needs to be taken to preserve these two pieces of evidence. We will fight to prevent the log from being destroyed and to download the data from the black box before the truck is put back into use. We will work quickly to avoid losing this crucial evidence.

Thorough Investigation in Every Case

A thorough investigation of the causes of a semi truck injury may reveal one or more of the following acts of negligence:

  • Driving in excess of permissible hours per day
  • Inadequate training of the truck driver
  • Improper maintenance of equipment
  • Improper lookout, speed or control of vehicle
  • Defective tires, brakes or transmissions
  • Cell phone use
  • Drug or alcohol use

We will investigate your case thoroughly to find out what acts of negligence caused the collision or fatal accident. We will hold the truck driver and the trucking company responsible for the semi accident.
