Your Lawyer Will Diagnose the Cause of Your Truck Accident
As your attorneys, we’ll determine how your truck accident happened. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) cites driver error as the reason for 87% of truck accidents. A truck driver’s actions may have caused your accident, too.
We complete thorough investigations for every truck accident case. We’ll identify all liable parties, including:
A Truck Driver
Truck drivers accept a great responsibility when they get behind the wheel. Large trucks weigh as much as 30 times more than passenger vehicles, per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Any wrong move by a truck driver can cause injury or death.
Truck drivers may be liable for accidents caused by their:
- Drug use
- Running a red light, stop sign, or yield sign
- Dangerous turn or lane change
- Failure to secure cargo properly
- Failure to inspect their truck for defects
When a truck driver is liable, their employer may be too.
A Trucking Company
A trucking company may be liable any time their driver causes a collision. A trucking company’s liability may be even greater if it contributes to an accident. Trucking companies can contribute to a collision by:
- Hiring unqualified drivers
- Allowing drivers to operate their truck beyond drivetime limits
- Failing to administer drug and alcohol tests
- Failing to discipline careless drivers
- Providing unsafe trucks, trailers, or equipment
- Failing to inspect trucks regularly
- Promoting a culture of carelessness
Trucking companies may have insurance to cover their own liabilities. Their policies generally cover drivers, too. We may sue the trucking company as part of any lawsuit that you file.
Any Other Party That Contributed to Your Accident
Truck manufacturers, Michigan City, and automotive repair professionals could be liable for a truck accident. The circumstances of your accident will determine liability.
It’s not always easy to pinpoint liable parties, especially in truck accident cases. Our truck accident lawyer will handle this part of your case.

Recoverable Losses for Truck Accident Victims in Michigan City
Each client we represent has a unique group of losses. We can work with doctors, experts, and you to identify all your damages. Losses from truck accidents may be extensive, and may include:
Doctors may conduct imaging services to diagnose your injuries. You’ll then need treatment for accident-related injuries. As for your recovery, you may need rehabilitation to get back to full strength.
Each of these stages will cost money. We’ll seek compensation for all your accident-related medical care.
Unless you have a guaranteed salary, you may lose income while you’re injured. If your injuries are serious, you may lose income for the remainder of your life. In addition to lost wages, we may seek coverage for:
- Your inability to earn bonuses and promotions
- Lost earning power
- Lost productivity
- Loss of professional fulfillment
We’ll include any other professional damages you experience in your lawsuit.
Pain and Suffering
A lawsuit allows you to seek coverage for non-economic losses. Pain and suffering is one such loss that may refer to:
- Traumatic memories of your accident
- Anxiety, depression, fear of driving, or other psychological conditions stemming from your truck accident
- Loss of sleep
- Lost quality of life
- Pain from your injuries
- Grief from losing a loved one
You could also get coverage for medications, counseling, and other treatments for your trauma.
A truck has the capacity to total smaller vehicles. If your vehicle wasn’t totaled, then you may get compensation for repairs. If it was totaled, then liable parties may pay for a new vehicle.
A Wrongful Death
If a truck accident caused your loved one’s passing, then you can bring a wrongful death claim. These claims generally involve medical costs, lost earnings, and other previously listed losses. Your wrongful death claim may also include:
- Funeral expenses
- Lost parental guidance
- Lost spousal companionship
- Loss of a child
- Lost financial support
- Grief counseling
- Any other damages you’ve experienced
