How Our Semi-Truck Accident Attorneys in Indianapolis Can Help
During our investigation of your truck accident claim, we work to determine:
Who Was Involved and Who Is Liable?
It's not always as straightforward as it seems. In fact, in any semi-truck accident claim, there may be a number of liable parties, including but not limited to:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- A manufacturer of a truck part
- The person or entity responsible for truck maintenance
- Another third party
Were Any Laws or Trucking Regulations Violated?
There are multiple layers of potential responsibility with a truck accident, and laws that regulate the trucking industry are stricter than those that apply to passenger vehicles.
Our truck accident lawyers in Indianapolis work to uncover whether the driver was compliant with all laws and industry regulations, allowing us to help assign liability in your case. We examine critical evidence, such as logbooks and the tractor and trailer themselves before the trucking company can perform repairs.
What Are Your Harms and Losses?
Unless you have a minor injury, which rarely happens in these types of cases, you will need an attorney to determine the full extent of your injuries and losses.
When determining the lifetime impact of the accident, we look at:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future loss of income/earning capacity
- Past and future pain, suffering, emotional distress
- And loss of quality of life
Who Will Pay Your Medical Bills?
The trucking company may not pay for your medical bills until you receive your settlement, which may take over a year. Your own health insurance or automobile insurer will usually pay your bills while your case is pending. We can review your insurance coverage to determine who will pay your bills while your case is pending.
Truck Accident FAQs
Knowledge is essential as you navigate your legal battle, especially when dealing with the legality involved in a truck accident. Here are some of the common questions our truck accident clients have in regard to their case.
What if the accident was caused by a driver from another state?
It should not make a difference whether the driver who caused the crash was from Indiana or another state. Our team can still evaluate your case and file a claim against the negligent party; whether that is the truck driver, the trucking company, or a third party.
Should I see a doctor if my injuries are only minor?
Absolutely. Many injuries, such as concussions or internal bleeding, cannot be detected until the damage has become serious. It is always best to get a professional medical exam following the crash.
I received an offer from the insurance company. Should I accept it?
When the insurance company offers you a quick settlement offer without going through the negotiation process, it likely means that they are offering you the lowest possible amount. It is advisable to work with an attorney who has experience evaluating cases and determining what they may be worth. The likelihood is that they know your case is worth more and are attempting to make a quick offer.
How long do I have to decide whether or not I want to pursue legal action?
Indiana follows a two-year statute of limitations. This means that you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. Once the deadline to file has passed, you may be unable to pursue legal action for your injuries.
