Recovery for a Wrongful Death in Decatur County, Ind.

Herbert Schilling, was driving westbound on State Road 46 in Decatur County after dark when he struck a semi-tractor trailer that was blocking the road in both directions as it attempted to make an improper U-turn. Herbert was killed as his car was crushed underneath the trailer. The investigation showed that the semi-tractor trailer was not only trying to make a dangerous U-turn, but was insufficiently illuminated so that motorists could not see it. Tabor Law Firm successfully represented Herbert's wife in a wrongful death claim against the trucking company and its driver.
