State Trooper injured in semi-truck collision

Truck Accident

Our client is an Indiana State Trooper, and was assisting a motorist on Interstate 74 near Crawfordsville when he was rear-ended by a semi-tractor trailer. The driver of the semi-tractor trailer and the trucking company that employed him tried to avoid responsibility for the collision by blaming a phantom vehicle for causing the semi to veer onto the shoulder of the interstate and collide with our client's police car.

Our investigators interviewed witnesses of the collision and determined that the semi was responsible for the collision. Our accident reconstructionist placed fault for the collision squarely on the driver of the semi-tractor trailer. At a settlement conference, we obtained a settlement in the amount of $150,000 for the Trooper and his wife.
