This past Saturday, another semi-truck accident needlessly took the life
of a fellow Hoosier. An out of state truck driver from Iowa failed to
stop at a traffic light in Gibson County, Indiana (US 41) and caused a
devastating crash. A local Hoosier from Remington, Indiana lost his life
following the crash. His vehicle was stopped at a traffic signal when,
for no known reason, the tractor-trailer slammed into the rear of his
car. At this time it is unknown why the semi-truck driver failed to stop,
but too often these types of needless collisions are a result of the truck
driver being distracted, intoxicated, fatigued, or simply failing to follow
traffic safety laws.
Our hearts go out to the family who needlessly lost a loved one in this
crash. We know how devastating of a loss this is for friends and family.
In fact, Tabor Law Firm has investigated that exact stretch of US 41 in
the past while representing a widow of a tow truck operator who was also
killed by a passing semi-truck. In that tragic accident, Tabor Law Firm
was successful in helping the widow and her children recover funds from
the at-fault insurance company. We hope justice prevails for the Remington
family as well.
Whether an accident involving a semi-truck is caused by an operator under
the influence, distracted, fatigued, or simply one who failed to abide
Tabor Law Firm has experience representing those seriously injured or killed
as a result. We can help, but you have to make the call first.
