With a fully loaded semi weighing upward of 80,000 pounds, one of the worst components to stop working while on the road is the brakes. Unfortunately, The Lawyer’s LogBook recently reported that brake failure is the foremost mechanical problem that causes collisions. Truck accidents can be devastating, and you’ll need the services of a skilled Eau Claire lawyer who can pursue the compensation you deserve while you begin recovering from your injuries.
Every 18-wheeler has 10 air brakes, with two on each axle. Though air brakes are designed to retain a consistent level of pressure and apply automatically when falling below that threshold, brakes can malfunction for a number of reasons, increasing the risk of a truck accident.
The parties who might be held liable for a truck accident resulting from brake failure include:

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
