Trucking Accidents Attorney In Lafayette Indiana

As you might imagine, collisions with semi-trucks frequently result in serious injury.  These cases can frequently become complex as Department of Transportation regulations are involved, and frequently trucks are leased out by their owners.  It may be difficult to ascertain exactly which insurance company may provide the coverage.  Normally, a case of this type cannot be pursued without the services of an experienced injury lawyer.

There are multiple reasons where truck drivers, or company owners may be negligent.  These frequently involve driver fatigue or improper log maintenance resulting in excessive driving hours.  Defective tires and rims also contribute to trucking accidents.  Wide turn angles, unsafe lane changing, and the use of drugs or alcohol may also contribute to semi-truck liability. 

Frequently, hazardous roadways contribute to the incident resulting in multiple party litigation.  Unsecured loads, general poor maintenance of the truck, or a poor  braking system also frequently result in truck crashes.

Products liability may also be pursued in many truck accidents where poor braking illumination lamps on the rear of the trailer are utilized, or in cases where there is an under-ride situation and a vehicle is trapped underneath the trailer.

We would be happy to consult with you regarding injuries resulting from collisions with semi-trucks.
