While the driver of a truck often walks away without serious harm, passengers of the car nearly always suffer severe or critical injuries, if not death, in a car vs. truck accident. The difference in size, weight, and stopping distance allows little room for error, and a little negligence can lead to a major catastrophe.
Consult an experienced Wisconsin truck accident attorney if you have been seriously injured or lost a family member in a fatal crash with a tractor-trailer. Egelhoff Law Offices of Wauwatosa offers 13 years of experience in personal injury litigation, with many favorable settlements and jury verdicts.
I am Michael Egelhoff, representing truck wreck victims throughout the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area and statewide. I personally handle every claim, and have successfully sued for damages in trucking injury cases. We have handled major semi truck wrecks on Highway 41, I94, and I20, as well as 18-wheeler, heavy duty, and delivery truck accidents on smaller roads and in town.
Prompt Action on Truck Accident Claims
Contact me as soon as possible after you or a family member have suffered a truck crash. We act quickly to preserve evidence and follow up with witnesses, often sending an accident reconstruction expert to the scene. We also work with local law enforcement and prosecutors to obtain accident reports and find out if there are criminal charges.
Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve
I leave no stone unturned in seeking total compensation for trucking accident victims. As a former insurance defense attorney, I know that haulers carry lots of insurance. I also know what they will pay for various injuries and how they will defend the claim. We will seek the full policy limit if needed to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and earning power, and any future health care needs or permanent disability resulting from the crash.
A number of factors may be to blame for the truck accident:
- Driver fatigue (inattentive or falling asleep at the wheel)
- Effects of illegal stimulants (e.g., amphetamines)
- Tire separation, bad brakes, and other results of poor maintenance
- Speeding or reckless driving
I obtain and examine the driver’s logbooks and the repair record of the commercial vehicle. Our Wisconsin truck accident attorneys also investigate whether the driver was pressured by the trucking company to work beyond the legal limit of hours.
Contact a Wisconsin truck accident attorney with experience and results in these devastating accidents. I offer a free consultation at my Wauwatosa office, or at your home or hospital including evening and weekend appointments. Personal injury claims are taken on a contingency basis – no recovery, no attorneys’ fees.
