Westfield, IN Truck Accident Lawyer

Begin Your Case With a Proven Truck Accident Law Firm

Westfield Truck Accident Lawyer

Our Westfield truck accident lawyer handles cases involving cargo trucks, semis, tractor-trailers, and other large commercial vehicles. The impact of a large truck on a passenger vehicle can be catastrophic. Often, those in the smaller car sustain devastating injuries. If a truck driver caused your crash, they or their employer could be liable for your damages.

You do not have to take on the trucking company or their lawyers and insurance agents on your own. We will stand by your side and help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve.

We charge no upfront fees for our legal services and only take payment if we secure monetary compensation on your behalf. Call us at 800-333-9999 at any time to speak to one of our dedicated Westfield truck accident lawyers and set up a free consultation.

We Represent Injured Accident Victims Across Many Categories. Some Personal Injury Cases We Handle Include:

  • Accidents With Trucks or Commercial Vehicles
  • Injuries & Wrongful Death Involving Driver Negligence (cell phone use, DUI)

  • Ridesharing: Lyft & Uber Accidents
  • Bicycle Accident Injuries

Sometimes an auto accident injury is not evident until much later. Even if you haven’t suffered a catastrophic injury you still may need medical treatment. You should seek medical care immediately, even if you don’t think you are badly hurt. Some severe injuries may not be immediately apparent. This is the best way to physically and legally protect yourself and your loved ones.

" John came to our house and went over the legal part of it thoroughly and quickly, but he always made it more about us. I would recommend them to anybody because they’re going to make sure that you’re protected. It just always felt like we were dealing with family instead of a legal process."

Getting the Legal Perspective on Car Accidents – Audio Interview

Car accident lawyer Darryl Isaacs — The Hammer — sat down to address legal and safety considerations when injured from a car crash in a recent radio episode of “Ask The Hammer,” the podcast exploring the legal matters that matter most. There are many elements at play when knowing what to do after a car accident. Listen to the episode directly below.

Our Attorneys Can Assist With a Variety of Truck Accident Injuries

There is usually no such thing as a “minor fender bender” involving a large truck. In a truck accident, smaller vehicles and their occupants are more likely to suffer extensive damages and severe injuries. In fact, according to the National Safety Council (NSC), 71 percent of large-truck accident fatalities are passenger vehicle occupants.

Our attorneys can help if you or your loved one sustained a serious or fatal injury, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Severe cuts or bruising
  • Back or neck injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Broken, fractured, or crushed bones
  • Internal organ damage or bleeding
  • Loss of a limb

Our Accident Law Firm Will Get Started on Your Case Immediately By:

  • Listening to your story
  • Answering your questions
  • Advising you what to do next
  • Investigating the accident scene and all other evidence related to your claim
  • Reviewing medical records, police reports, and all documents
  • Determining which parties are liable for your injury
  • Meeting with insurance adjusters
  • Helping you file your claim
  • Demanding a just settlement for all of your medical treatment and damages

Our Lawyers Will Pursue Compensation From the At-Fault Party

We know how important your physical health and financial stability are to you. Therefore, we will work tirelessly to help you get the money you need to treat your injuries and compensate you for your losses. This may include awards for:

  • Medical care – Including doctor bills, hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, medical equipment, and long-term and in-home health care
  • Lost wages – Including your back pay and loss of future earning capacity if you cannot return to work
  • Pain and suffering – Including awards for depression, scarring and disfigurement, paralysis, stress, mental anguish, loss of sleep, physical pain, and the inability to enjoy life in the same way as before your accident
  • Vehicle damages – Including vehicle repairs or the fair market value of your totaled car
  • Miscellaneous expenses – Including household services, transportation, and rental car fees, medical travel expenses, and any other out-of-pocket costs related to your accident

We can help you recover these damages via an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. You must pursue a lawsuit within the window allotted in Indiana’s statute of limitations. According to IC § 34-11-2-4, in general, you have two years to file suit. Waiting too long could affect your chance of securing a fair settlement.

Indiana Wrongful Death Cases

Some states allow family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit; however, a representative of the deceased’s estate must pursue action in Indiana. The estate can recover awards for medical treatment and funeral and burial expenses. Surviving family members may recover additional awards depending on their relationship to the deceased.

The statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death case is usually two years from your family member’s time of death, according to IC § 34-23-2-1. If your loved one suffered a fatal injury, our accident lawyers can tell you more about seeking justice on their behalf.

Truck Accident Causes and Liability

You should not have to suffer the financial burden of an accident you did not cause. Our team can investigate your truck accident and determine who is liable for your injuries. This could be the truck driver, the trucking company, the entity responsible for the cargo, or another negligent party.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver error – Truck drivers and other motorists must obey traffic laws and operate their vehicles responsibly for their safety and the safety of others. Driver errors may include:
    • Speeding
    • Driving drowsy or sleeping at the wheel
    • Driving distracted
    • Following too closely
    • Failing to stop at a marked intersection
    • Making an improper turn
    • Drinking and driving
    • Driving under the influence of drugs
    • Driving without a commercial vehicle license (CMV) or valid state driver’s license
  • Vehicle and equipment problems – You may have a case against a trucking company, vehicle manufacturer, or entity in charge of truck maintenance if one of the following vehicle issues contributed to your accident:
    • Faulty brakes
    • Blown tires
    • Engine problems
    • Airbag failure
    • Lack of proper safety equipment (such as underride guards)
    • Lack of routine truck maintenance
    • Failure to fix a known vehicle problem
    • Improperly attached truck trailer
    • Defective steering
  • Cargo issues – Your accident could be because of problems with the cargo if it was due to:
    • An overloaded truck
    • Shifting cargo
    • Improperly secured goods
    • Mishandling of dangerous cargo, such as chemicals or fuel
  • Violation of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) guidelines – Because large trucks can pose a hazard to others on the road, drivers and trucking companies must adhere to regulations designed to increase safety, including:
    • Drive time limits
    • Vehicle size and weight limits
    • Mandatory driver drug and alcohol screenings
    • Background checks for drivers transporting hazardous materials
    • Mandatory vehicle inspections
  • Roadway issues – A public or private roadway owner could be liable for your accident if one of the following cause your crash:
    • Flawed road design
    • Poor maintenance, such as cracked surfaces or potholes
