Truck Accidents Can Have Tragic Consequences
Wisconsin’s highways are busier than ever. Much of that traffic is made up of commercial trucks rushing to deliver products to various businesses.
The experienced legal team at Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., understands how an accident with a tractor-trailer, a bus or other large commercial vehicle can instantly change an individual’s life. You may face a lengthy hospital stay or extensive rehabilitation, including physical therapy and all the bills that come with it. If the accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation expenses, and pain and suffering.
There are numerous regulations that businesses must adhere to regarding the operation of commercial trucks. These include stipulations about vehicle maintenance and strict rules for how many hours a driver can log in a 24-hour period. If you or a loved one is injured in a commercial vehicle accident caused by an overly tired trucker or another reason, it is important to contact a law firm that has thorough knowledge of these regulations and what role they play in your case.
Our lawyers have access to expert accident investigators who will review police reports and conduct their own investigation, including reconstructing the semi accident, to help build a strong case.
