Truck accident victims and their families are forced to shoulder a lot of added responsibility when disaster strikes:

“What will happen if I have to miss work for an extended period?”

Here's How an Experienced Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help
Victims should not be burdened with solving all of the problems that arise after an accident. Many are still suffering from the trauma of such a disastrous event. Others may still be hospitalized weeks after a wreck. That’s why it is important to have an advocate on your side as soon as possible to protect your legal rights and pursue full and fair compensation on your behalf.
Here are just a few ways that the tractor-trailer accident lawyers at Wisner Baum can help you:
Conduct a thorough investigation. When disaster strikes—whether it happens on an urban freeway or a country road—law enforcement will investigate the crash and produce a report. While law enforcement accident reports are useful for building your case, our accident attorneys also conduct a thorough and independent investigation to ensure that no stone is left unturned when determining liability (who is liable for causing or contributing to the accident). Most of our cases involve negligence on the part of a trucking company or truck driver for reckless driving. However, our team also looks for other possible causes, including negligence on the part of other entities and product liability if the truck or a component part of the vehicle failed and caused the accident. Bottom line: Our accident lawyers know what it takes to investigate and build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
Gather evidence and take care of all the paperwork. We analyze police reports, evaluate medical records, conduct eyewitness interviews, and seek access to evidence that may not have been gathered by law enforcement, including any evidence from “black box” data recorders. Managing all of this evidence and preparing your case to file involves a significant amount of paperwork. If your case is not managed properly, it could affect your financial compensation.
Ensure you receive the care you need. We have seen time and again insurance companies going to great lengths to limit their financial obligations to truck accident victims. This may include fighting to limit doctor's visits or insisting that you no longer require medical care at all for your accident injuries. Our firm will fight on your behalf to ensure you always have access to the medical care you deserve for as long as it takes to fully recover.
Speak to insurance companies on your behalf. As mentioned earlier, insurance companies often try to limit their financial exposure after an accident. They may offer lowball settlement offers that pale in comparison to what could be achieved if you hire a lawyer and file a lawsuit. An experienced tractor-trailer lawyer will negotiate a favorable settlement with insurers on your behalf to recover the highest possible compensation for your injuries. Our firm accomplishes this by preparing every case to go to trial. Building a strong, trial-ready case puts us in the best possible negotiating position and lets insurers know we will take the fight to them in court if they do not agree to fairly compensate our clients.
File your truck accident lawsuit. If an insurance company refuses to negotiate a reasonable settlement, we will see them in court. Our firm boasts several veteran truck attorneys with proven track records against major trucking entities.
Appeal the case, if needed. In the rare event that we do not receive a favorable verdict at trial, we will appeal the case to a higher court. Our team does not stop litigating until our clients are satisfied with the result.
We front the costs, and there are no fees unless we win. Hiring our truck accident attorneys to pursue justice and compensation on your behalf costs you nothing upfront. Wisner Baum fronts all of the costs associated with litigating your case, including filing fees, case management, conducting depositions, retaining experts, and other expenditures. We only get paid if we win compensation on your behalf. It’s that simple.
