Some Of Our Past Successes

We have helped semitruck accident victims in Western Wisconsin get the compensation they deserved so that they could move forward after the accident. These are some of our stories:

  • In one case, our client was seriously injured trying to avoid the wreckage of an accident on I-94 that had just happened. Traveling on a dark road, the collision had left the semis difficult to see. Our client swerved and reduced some of the impact, but still had significant injuries. Before trial, we were able to reach a settlement agreement in mediation for more than one and a half million dollars.
  • In another case, our client was a highway construction employee working on the median of I-94. Our client was injured by a semi that smashed into him. He had multiple fractures and other injuries. Upon investigation, the trucking company lacked sufficient insurance and had transferred funds to give the appearance of reduced assets. Our client and his family were able to get a large settlement to cover the injuries, damages and medical bills.
  • Another client was an 85-year-old farmer. A milk truck struck and dragged him 100 feet down his gravel driveway. Even after surgery, he was never able to return to his farm because of the injuries. After long and intense negotiations with the insurance company, the matter settled for over two million dollars.
