Help After A Truck Accident Changed Your Life
Over the past two decades, the number of truck accidents has increased significantly, according to the Federal Motor carrier Safety Administration. At Lubar & Lanning, LLC, our attorneys represent motorists, motorcyclists, pedestrians and other people who sustain serious injuries in collisions involving semitrucks on Wisconsin's roads.
We investigate and develop strategic arguments related to various factors that may contribute to truck accidents, all of which can result in serious injuries or death:
While reviewing the evidence, we determine who was responsible for the collision. Sometimes multiple parties contribute to a motor vehicle crash, and if you sustained a serious injury you may be able to bring a claim against the truck driver, his or her employer, or other motorists on the road who failed to drive safely.
Preserving Evidence After A Trucking AccidentIf you are the victim of a trucking accident, the questions of who is responsible and what actually caused the accident are often much more complicated than in a traditional traffic accident. There are many parties involved, from the driver to the owner of the truck, and getting evidence about what went wrong often requires some industry know-how. At Lubar & Lanning, LLC, we are experienced advocates with knowledge of trucking industry regulations.
The trucking industry uses devices similar to black boxes from airplanes that record numerous pieces of information, including how fast the truck was going, when the driver used his or her brakes — and even how long the driver had been on the road prior to the accident. The trucking industry also uses devices that provide information about the angles of a slope and how to round corners safely.
If you are involved in a trucking accident, it is critical that you make sure data from high tech equipment is saved. Otherwise, it could be erased as part of the trucking company's regular routine. The best way to ensure that you maximize the evidence available to your case is to get in touch with an experienced accident attorney.
