Wisconsin Semi Truck Accident Attorney
There is an average of 7,532 large truck accidents on the roads in Wisconsin each year. This results in an average of 90 fatalities and 2,705 serious injuries. If you have been in an accident with a semi truck, then you are at a serious disadvantage. The sheer weight and utter impact of a semi truck collision can result in life threatening and life altering injuries to the victims involved.
If you’ve been injured—or a loved one has been killed—in an accident involving a semi, the Wisconsin Truck Accident Lawyers at Bye, Goff & Rohde will fight for compensation for your losses.
The responsibilities and rules on the road apply to all drivers.
Semi truck drivers are not just driving to get from Point A to Point B; they are also driving to make a living. What this means is that reckless driving, speeding and driving while drowsy are all part of the game. While there are rules in place to stop semi truck drivers from driving in these dangerous conditions, many still do anyway. After all, they have bills to pay, mouths to feed and goals to save for just like the rest of us.
However, if a semi truck driver does hit someone while tired, under the influence of drugs or alcohol or due to speeding or reckless driving, then the results can be devastating. Semi truck accidents can be the result of a number of factors including:
- Reckless driving, speeding
- Driver fatigue
- Faked log books
- Heavy load, weight imbalance
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Error in manufacturing
Semi truck accident injuries are often life changing. If you have been injured in a semi truck accident then you may be unable to work for a long period of time. You may be faced with serious medical expenses, a loss of quality of life and a severe state of emotional exhaustion and depression. Semi truck injuries can result in crushed bones, traumatic brain injury, permanent disability, paralysis and death. In most instances, moving on from a semi truck accident involves a complete life transformation.
