Representing Truck Accident Victims

Truck accidents cause serious injuries to thousands of people each year. Many of these accidents occur on I-94 and other local roads because of truck driver negligence (mainly driver fatigue) or poor truck maintenance. The most common victims are drivers and passengers in smaller vehicles that collide with trucks. In certain instances, even careful commercial drivers have been severely injured by another negligent trucker.

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, wrongful death, or other damages. The Eau Claire truck accident firm of Hertel Law, S.C., can help you maximize the compensation you receive.

You should talk to a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident to get started on your claim. Call our office at 715-598-2761 for a free consultation.

We Understand Semitruck Accidents

At Hertel Law, S.C., we represent injured people in personal injury and wrongful death cases related to Wisconsin truck accidents. Equipped with experience going back to 1976, we can provide advice and advocacy to you and your family if your case involves:

  • A collision with an 18-wheeler, semitruck, tractor-trailer or any other commercial vehicle
  • Catastrophic injuries such as paralysis or traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Broken bones, soft tissue damage or loss of functioning
  • An accident on Interstate 94, U.S. Highway 53, U.S. Highway 10, or State Road 29 or 93
  • Large medical bills
  • Ongoing treatment or rehabilitation
  • Damage to your vehicle that has kept you from normal activities
  • The loss of a loved one

Every accident case is different. We can answer your questions and help you understand how to proceed with the various aspects of recovery from your accident.

The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend

If you were seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness, that person’s (or entity’s) insurance company will be interested in you, but not because it cares about what happened to you or your family. Claims adjusters, lawyers and other insurance company representatives will work very hard to deny or minimize your injury claim, even when they know their insured was to blame for the injury. They may try to offer you a small settlement, get you to sign papers or ask you for recorded statements. We tell our clients not to do any of those things until they talk to their lawyer.

If you or a family member is thinking about pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, you will benefit from having an attorney who understands insurance company tricks and tactics — and who will fight for you and your family. Hertel Law, S.C., is here to work for you.
