Pursuing Justice for People Injured in Truck Accidents in La Crosse and the Surrounding Areas

When you are injured in an accident with a truck, semi-trailer or 16-wheeler, the resulting injuries can be severe or fatal. As the largest law firm in our area, Hale, Skemp, Hanson, Skemp & Sleik, Attorneys & Counselors at Law is well-equipped to pursue your claim against all responsible parties, including the driver, trucking company, loading company or rig owner. Trucking companies often move quickly to settle accident cases.

You may be contacted almost immediately after a truck accident by an insurance adjustor, trucking company employee or other person who expresses concern and appears to have your best interests in mind. You should not discuss your claim with any of these people, or agree to any settlement, before seeking the advice of your own attorney. We want you to receive the full measure of your compensation by proceeding carefully. This includes consulting with medical providers of your own choosing who can advise you about the long-term health consequences of the accident.

Helping people injured in many types of truck accidents by putting their interests first

At Hale, Skemp, Hanson, Skemp & Sleik, our concern is for your well-being. Our goal is to help you achieve a fair and equitable recovery for all injuries and damage suffered in truck accidents, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Muscle injuries
  • Ligament damage
  • Broken bones
  • Burns

Because of the size, weight and power of semi-trailers and 16-wheelers, truck accidents can be fatal. If your family member suffers a fatality in a truck accident, a wrongful death action may be necessary to recover damages from those who caused the accident.

You need an experienced truck accident attorney with the resources and skill to investigate the cause of a truck accident and determine which parties should bear responsibility.

Among the common causes of truck accidents are:

  • Overloaded trucks
  • Cell phone use
  • Tire blowout
  • Driver negligence
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Wide turns
  • Driver fatigue
  • DUI

If you are injured because of a rollover, hit-and-run, overturn, parking, backing or other type of truck accident, seek reliable legal counsel to assist you in pursuing your claim.
