Comprehensive Legal Representation For Complex Truck Accident Cases
Motor vehicle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. Particularly when an enormous commercial vehicle collides with a much smaller passenger car, the injuries can be fatal.
Many times, truck accidents occur because drivers are exhausted and sleep-deprived. In some cases, their vehicles haven’t been maintained properly. These issues form the basis of some of the personal injury and wrongful death cases we handle in the courts of Indiana and Illinois.
Holding Irresponsible Trucking Companies Accountable
At Greene & Schultz, based in Bloomington, Indiana, our lawyers hold irresponsible trucking companies and negligent drivers accountable for their actions. We can help you resolve your case if it involves:
- An 18-wheeler or tractor-trailer wreck
- A municipal vehicle such as a bus, fire truck, or law enforcement vehicle
- An accident on interstates 69, 65 or 70
- A delivery vehicle such as a UPS truck or FedEx truck
- Catastrophic injuries
It’s troubling to realize that when a truck accident occurs, the negligent party’s insurance company often arrives on the scene right away, not to help victims or take responsibility, but to gather evidence to build their case against the injured person or people’s claim.
It is also important to understand that truck accident cases are much more complex than car accident cases. With competing parties (the truck driver, his or her direct employer, the trucking company, the shipper, their insurers, and more), multiple sources of liability, and a myriad of local, state, and federal laws, rules, and regulations, truck accident cases can be incredibly difficult to litigate — and not something you want to entrust to an attorney who only handles car accident cases.
