Semi-Truck Accidents: Northwest Indiana Semi Truck or Tractor-Trailer Accident Attorneys

If you are facing an uphill road to recovery after sustaining serious injuries in a tractor-trailer or other motor vehicle accident, retaining a law firm with experience can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

Truck accident or semi crash injuries are often far more serious than car accident injuries. Rigs or semi trucks can weigh upwards of 40 tons or more. Some of the injuries that our clients have sustained are broken bones, head injuries, loss of limbs, crush injuries, eye injuries, and catastrophic, permanent injury, and death.

Defense lawyers for the trucking insurance companies will work hard to limit their liability. They generally challenge every aspect of evidence in the case to protect their insurance company's pay out. As personal injury trial attorneys with decades of experience, we can assure you that we are prepared to fully and aggressively represent you at every stage of your case. We will document your medical expenses and the extent of your injuries and rigorously investigate all causes of liability. Among the experts we may retain to help build a strong case are: accident reconstruction experts, trucking consultants, truck engineers, home economists and lifestyle experts, and medical professionals.

We are a personal injury trial law firm that is committed to serving the needs of people like you at some of the most difficult times of their lives. Talk to us at no charge in a confidential consultation, where we can hear the story of what happened, explain your rights, give you a general understanding of the value of your case and tell you how we believe we can help you. We will investigate issues like these:

  • Was the truck driver in violation of any federal trucking regulations?
  • Was the tractor-trailer properly maintained?
  • Was there an issue with the balance or securing of the truck's load?
  • Was the truck driving on the road when he was, by law, supposed to be resting?
  • Was there adequate training of the truck driver?

As of January 2010, federal law prohibits truckers and other commercial driver's license holders from texting while driving.
