Semi-truck accidents happen frequently, with more than 7,000 crashes occurring in Wisconsin annually. Between summer construction and poor winter road conditions, these collisions can result in significant damages and trauma. Damages are usually far worse than a standard automobile accident due to the sheer size and weight of a semi-truck.
Examples of truck accidents include rollover accidents, tip-over accidents, rear-end accidents, jackknife accidents and multi-vehicle collisions.
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, trust Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs to help. During these personal injury cases, you are likely taking on more than just the driver of the semi-truck.
