As drivers in Indiana, we share the road with a large number of semi tractor trailers. However, if a truck driver causes an accident, we don’t share in the consequences. Due to the size and weight of the truck, it is the driver of the car who suffers severe injuries or death.
The medical, financial and emotional challenges faced by the victims of a car-truck collision can be overwhelming. At Laura L. Rybicki, LLC, in St. John, our Northwest Indiana personal injury attorneys offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights and options. We represent victims of truck accidents in Lake County, Porter County and throughout northern Indiana.
For more information about trucking accidents, please choose from the following:
Identifying the cause of the accident is key to proving liability. Our lawyers will investigate everything from truck maintenance records to the background of the driver.
Fatigue is often a factor in truck accident cases. By comparing driver logbooks with evidence such as gas and toll receipts, we can determine if the truck driver took breaks required by DOT regulations.
Commercial vehicles often place profits ahead of safety. If you are injured as a result, our job as your attorney is to hold the company responsible.
Our Northwest Indiana accident attorneys have the experience to handle the most complex truck accident claims. Julie A. Dugan and Bridgett J. Repay have handled accident claims from both the plaintiff’s and defendant’s perspective. Understanding how the other side views your claim gives us the knowledge we need to protect your interests.
