Milwaukee Truck Accident Lawyer



Getting hurt in a truck accident can leave you struggling with catastrophic injuries, medical expenses, and other challenges. If you or a family member has been injured in a truck crash, you have the right to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury claim. That said, filing a strong claim can be difficult without the help of a skilled personal injury lawyer from Milwaukee.

At Gruber Law Offices, we understand how difficult it can be to move forward after a truck collision. That’s why we’re here to offer the compassionate and effective legal guidance you need to win your case. A Milwaukee truck accident lawyer from our firm can handle every aspect of your case and fight for the damages you deserve.   

Our philosophy, “One Call…That’s All,” is our commitment to you that after making just one call, our team will handle every aspect of your personal injury case while you and your loved ones focus on healing and recovery. 

As one of the largest injury law firms in the Midwest, our legal team is comprised of over 130 knowledgeable and experienced professionals who are passionate about helping those who have been injured. 

Importance of Hiring a Lawyer After a Truck Crash

Truck accidents tend to be catastrophic events, often caused by negligence on the part of the driver, the trucking company, a parts manufacturer, or another party. This makes filing a truck rash claim difficult, as several parties could be held liable.

One Call. That’s All!  Don’t wait; act right away when a truck crashes. 

Plus, trucking companies are regulated by a handful of complicated laws set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In addition to the complexity of filing a truck accident claim, there is a lot of money at stake when a large commercial truck crashes and people are hurt or killed.

In many cases, this causes the trucking company to spring into action to limit the financial damage. If you have been injured in a truck accident, you may hear from lawyers representing the trucking company or its insurance company very soon afterward. You should refrain from providing a statement prior to consulting an attorney. 

You should also refuse to accept a check or sign anything after a significant truck accident without first speaking to an experienced truck accident lawyer from our Wisconsin team.   Insurers and trucking company lawyers aren’t your friends after a crash, but our firm is. We have the knowledge, experience, and track record of success to get you the results you deserve.

Evidence Your Milwaukee Truck Accident Attorney Can Use To File a Claim

To get the damages you need to cover your losses and move past your accident, our knowledgable legal team will conduct a thorough investigation of the collision.  Our extensive resources will help to uncover the necessary evidence and information to file a compelling claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company.

We’ll use the following records and forms of evidence to make your claim as strong as possible:

  • Evidence collected at the accident scene
  • Police accident reports
  • Witness statements
  • Your medical records
  • Driver qualification file
  • Telematics data
  • Information about the condition of the truck and other vehicle(s) in the wreck.
  • Data from the truck’s event data recorder.
  • The trucker’s activity logs, which by law must show their time behind the wheel and at rest
  • Other trucking company records include truck use and maintenance records, cargo reports, statements from company employees, and policy and procedure manuals.

Investigating a catastrophic collision and building a solid claim can be complicated. Fortunately, our firm is here to guide you through the claims process. We’ll work diligently to develop a strong case against the party responsible for your injuries and losses. We’ve helped thousands of injured truck victims get the results they need. Let’s take a closer look at some of the evidence we may use to build your claim.

Trucking Telematics

Telematics are most often used by larger and more sophisticated truck companies and motor carriers that employ multiple truck drivers. Telematics can track data such as speed, location, harsh braking events, harsh turns, and phone usage. Telematics can also track vehicle diagnostic information like engine health, tire pressure, oil temperature, and other system information.

This data can help us learn more about the factors that contributed to your accident and ultimately allow us to prove your case. Using this information, we can determine if your crash was caused by unsafe driving, Hours of Service violations, maintenance issues, or a handful of other factors.

Other legal teams might not have the staff or resources to analyze telematics information, but we do. Our dedicated investigative team will collect all the data and evidence available and use it to your advantage. Our family-oriented team will provide resources for every aspect of the case, so you have the time you need to focus on recovering from your truck accident injuries.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents We Can Investigate

Countless factors can contribute to a truck collision. At Gruber Law Offices, it’s our job to investigate your crash and determine what caused it. We’ve helped thousands of accident victims identify the cause of the incident they were involved in, and we’re eager to put our decades of experience to work for you. 

Our helpful team of truck accident attorneys serving Milwaukee and all of Wisconsin can investigate and file a claim for collisions caused by any of the following factors:

  • Inattentive driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failure to monitor blind spots
  • Truck driver error, including an improper turn
  • Road rage
  • Improper passing
  • Disregarded traffic control
  • Driving left of center
  • Mechanical failure
  • Brake failure
  • Driver fatigue or drowsy driving
  • Overloaded cargo

Additional Truck Accident Causes

With four decades of personal injury experience, our team has seen nearly every type of truck crash case. You can count on us to do everything we can to determine what caused your accident, who should be held liable, and how to go about recovering financial compensation.

We’ll stand by your side throughout the legal claims process, no matter how complicated your case may be. Our truck accident lawyers in Wisconsin will work hard to determine if your crash was caused by one of the following additional factors:

Distracted Driving

The FMCSA prohibits commercial truck drivers from using cell phones and similar devices while behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer. Despite this fact, distracted driving remains a leading cause of truck accidents. If your collision was caused by distracted driving, we’ll gather the evidence we need to prove your case and secure damages.

Aggressive Driving

Failing to yield right of way, improper turning, following too closely, improper passing, improper backing, running red lights and stop signs, and speeding are all considered forms of aggressive driving. 

If the truck driver was driving aggressively at the time of the crash, we can use evidence of their reckless behavior to win your case. 

Impaired Driving

Operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal, dangerous, and likely to cause a serious crash. While random testing of truck drivers has reduced the amount of impaired driving incidents, they still occur.

At Gruber Law Offices, we’ve handled multiple intoxicated driving cases and can help you file a compelling claim for compensation.

Injuries Our Truck Accident Lawyers in Milwaukee Can File a Claim For

Our experienced and knowledgeable  truck accident attorneys have filed claims for a variety of different minor and severe truck crash injuries. You can rest assured that we have what it takes to help you recuperate from any of the following common accident injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Neck injuries

  • Other common injuries

Dealing with a debilitating injury after a commercial truck accident can be life-changing. Our firm understands the obstacles you’re facing and can offer compassionate support throughout your case. We’ll fight relentlessly to get the resources you need to assist your recovery and get back to your normal way of life.

Don't Wait Too Long To Get Started on Your Case

At Gruber Law Offices, we pride ourselves on being understanding and compassionate, yet still aggressively fighting for our client’s best interest.

We investigate many potential causes of accidents in truck crash cases. Given the many factors and different issues at play, it’s imperative you contact us right away. The faster our team can get involved, the better we can secure evidence and begin our own investigation.

In some cases, the trucking company may rush to destroy evidence after a crash. Hiring our Wisconsin truck accident lawyers ASAP will ensure evidence is preserved, giving you an excellent chance of filing a successful claim.

Statute of Limitations for Truck Crash Lawsuits

The statute of limitations presents another reason to get started on your case soon. According to Wisconsin State Legislature 893.54, you have three years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit against the liable party. Failure to act in accordance with this law could prevent you from getting the financial remedies you need to treat your injuries and move forward.

As long as you contact our personal injury attorneys soon, we’ll have the time we need to investigate your incident, gather evidence, and file a strong lawsuit. No matter how complicated your case is, you can rest assured our skilled truck accident attorneys have what it takes to get all important court documents filed on time.
