Being involved in a semi truck accident in Indiana can be a very frightening experience for anyone in a passenger vehicle. The traumatic injuries that can result from a car vs. semi accident—amputations, paralysis and brain damage—can leave a victim and loved ones feeling hopeless and downtrodden.
Liability in a Car vs. Semi Accident
If a truck accident in Indiana has left you or a loved one in a vulnerable position, contact us. You should consider reaching out to a lawyer that specializes in truck accidents because a semi truck accident isn’t handled like a typical accident between two passenger vehicles. For starters, the parties that may be liable in a truck accident include the:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Truck manufacturer
- Company that loaded the truck
- Company that maintains the truck
With all of these parties involved, you can expect the insurance companies to put up a fight. Hensley Legal Group can face the challenge when you’ve clearly been a victim of negligence. Our lawyers fight to help you obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, and pain and suffering.
As your lawyer will explain, commercial trucking companies and their truck drivers must abide by federal rules that were put in place to prevent truck driver fatigue and ensure that vehicles are safe. Your lawyer will work tirelessly to gather evidence to prove negligence in your semi accident in Indiana.
There’s no reason why you should have to pay costly medical bills because a big rig veered into your lane or tipped over because it wasn’t properly loaded. Even though no amount of compensation will bring back a loved one you may have lost, our lawyers can help you seek wrongful death benefits to pay for funeral and burial expenses and compensate for the loss of spousal support or parental guidance.
