Manufacturing and farming: two industries that are crucial for Lafayette’s economy and require large, heavy vehicles to get work done. Every day, heavy trucks emerge from the Subaru Indiana and Caterpillar plants and pass by the city on I-65 coming from Chicago and Indianapolis.
Lafayette drivers must be careful when sharing the road with loaded tractor-trailers. Because of their size compared to smaller family cars, truck accidents often leave victims with life-altering injuries and medical debt.

Getting Compensation After Lafayette Truck Accidents
Semi-truck accidents usually result in severe or fatal injuries, which lead to massive medical bills and weeks or months of lost wages. You shouldn’t have to bear financial responsibility for an accident that wasn’t your fault. At Hensley Legal Group, our goal is to hold trucking companies responsible and help you get the compensation that you deserve.
The types of damages you can recover after a serious truck accident through a personal injury claim include but are not limited to:
Medical expenses – This includes medical bills that are an immediate result of the accident, future medical costs, and physical therapy
Lost wages – You likely won’t get paid to stay home and heal after your accident. You may not even be able to do the same amount or type of work as before the accident depending on the extent of your injury. You deserve to be compensated for lost wages and any lost earning capacity caused by the accident.
Pain and suffering – Semi-truck accidents victims can develop depression, anxiety, and psychological aversions to being inside a vehicle. Sometimes these psychological damages can be treated, but the impact never really goes away. You can’t put a price tag on suffering but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be compensated for your pain.
You can always start a personal injury claim on your own, but if you are struggling with injuries or loss of a loved one, the stress of fighting with insurance companies may be too much to handle.
