Skilled Appleton Attorneys Represent Victims of Trucking Accidents
Handling injury claims throughout the Fox Valley
One of the most hazardous parts of driving on highways throughout Wisconsin is the number of trucks that you will be sharing the road with. These trucks are massive in size, often weighing more than four tons. This means that any time they are involved in an accident, these trucks can easily cause catastrophic injuries or death to anyone driving a smaller vehicle in their vicinity. At the law office of Bollenbeck Fyfe, S.C., skilled staff attorneys Stuart Spaude and Andrew Wagener have represented victims of truck accidents throughout the Fox Valley and the State of Wisconsin. With more than 35 years of experience between them, they have the knowledge to fight for the compensation you are owed as a result of your injury.
Who is at fault for your trucking accident?
Time is always a factor when dealing with a truck accident because there is evidence that needs to preserve immediately. We have a great deal of experience dealing with truck accidents in Wisconsin and know how to determine who is responsible for personal injuries in an accident. The fault in a trucking accident usually belongs to:
- The truck driver: Truck drivers are often at fault for any accident they are involved in. Speeding, load shift, mechanical problems, driver fatigue and distracted driver are all common reasons why these accidents occur, and our attorneys are ready to investigate and pursue the evidence surrounding the collision to establish blame. Our firm uses a range of resources to gather the necessary evidence for your case, including eyewitness testimony, blood tests, accident scene photographs, driver logs, company internal reports, electronic information, police reports, and accident reconstruction analysis.
- The trucking company: A trucking company is responsible for ensuring that all its truckers are competent and responsible enough to handle the job. Additionally, these companies are also in charge in making sure that the trucks are in working order and not a hazard on the road. If we find that the trucking company hasn’t taken these basic safety precautions into consideration, we bring them to court to collect compensation for any injuries you suffered due to their negligence.
- The truck manufacturer: There are times when an accident was not caused by driver error or the trucking company’s negligence, but instead by defective parts on the truck. These faulty parts include brakes, tires and steering systems; all are vital to a truck’s performance and safety. Without them, a commercial truck operating on the roads with defective parts may cause the driver to lose control and cause serious harm to other motorists. Our attorneys understand trucking accidents and they make sure to investigate whether or not the truck’s manufacturer was to blame for your accident or a loved one’s wrongful death.
