Trucking accidents are especially common on interstates. I-94 and I-43 are frequent sites of truck accidents, including accidents with multiple-car pileups. Regardless of the location, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. The trucking company and its insurance carrier will immediately send a team of investigators, insurance adjusters and lawyers to the scene. They will work to protect the company from risk and expense, usually by denying fault for the accident.
Our attorneys investigate truck accidents by reviewing:
- The accident report
- The condition of the tires and brakes
- The driver log
- Drug and alcohol tests
- Safety maintenance records for the vehicle
In wrongful death cases, we typically work with an accident reconstruction expert to determine the speed of each vehicle, which driver hit the other and who was at fault for the accident.
