Truck Accidents Archives

Truck accident claims a life in Wisconsin

There's no way around it. You're not going anywhere in Wisconsin if you're not on the road. Although Milwaukee and Madison have some public transit options, and the train can be caught in the southern heartland, cars and trucks are the best way to get around the Badger State.

Winter months bring all sorts of hazards to roads in Wisconsin. Ice can turn hardy road surfaces into glass with the slipperiness of a skating rink. Snow logs in tire treads, bringing vehicles to a stop or sometimes making it hard to stop. But a year-round hazard is brought into stark relief by the fallen leaves and white background: animals.

Icy road conditions cause more accidents in Wisconsin

With winter in full swing throughout the northern United States, the risk of winter weather is on the mind of most drivers. A record cold snap with large amounts of precipitation brought many Wisconsin communities to a standstill, but many drivers see no alternative to taking to the road to get to work or run errands.

What is the most common type of truck collision?

Drivers share the roads of Wisconsin with every type of vehicle. Car and pickup truck drivers often see tractor-trailers on the interstates and other limited-access highways, and some people heading down smaller roads may even see a bicycle or cross-country skier. But there are few combinations more dangerous on the road than car drivers and truck drivers who are not prepared for each other.

How can avoid truck accidents in Wisconsin?

If you buy some clothes or food in Wisconsin, the odds are that your purchases came to you on a truck. Four out of five American communities receive all goods by truck, and this service can come at a price. Truck driving is one of the nation's most dangerous professions, and the casualties are not only truck drivers.

There wouldn't be much to buy at the mall or the grocery store without trucks. Even devotees of online shopping must admit deliveries rely on trucks. Although they can pose problems on the highways, trucks and truckers are due respect for keeping our economy moving.

Truck accidents and expert witnesses: A lawyer's perspective

Truck accidents injure far too many Americans each year. Unfortunately, residents of Wisconsin are just as much at risk of suffering severe injuries in a truck accident as residents of other state are. With all of the widespread knowledge about why truck accidents occur in the nation, we believe that they should almost never happen in today's world.
