You and your family have just enjoyed a relaxing evening cruising down E. Market St. in Jeffersonville, IN. You visited the Howard Steamboat museum and mansion and took a tour of the Jeff Boat Works, and now you are in your car on the way to grab some ice cream and maybe catch a movie. You’re sitting at a red light, waiting for it to turn green. Suddenly, you hear the loud screech of the breaks of a tractor-trailer truck coming up behind you. Before you can react, the truck slams into you, sending your vehicle tumbling down the street. The last thing you think before you lose consciousness is, I hope my family is okay.
It is sad to think about, but the truth is that if you and your family are in an accident with a trailer truck, it is likely that your automobile is totaled and that you or your family will be severely injured or even killed. This is because of the size disparity that exists between a passenger vehicle and a tractor-trailer truck.
The government understands how dangerous an over the road truck can be if it is not properly maintained, properly operated, and if the truck driver is not alert and well-trained. For this reason, there are strict government guidelines dictating how truck drivers and their trucks must operate. Usually, when there is a tractor-trailer accident, it is because one or more of these guidelines were overlooked.

Help in Your Uphill Battle
If you are the victim of a truck accident, one thing that you can be sure of is that even if the accident was caused by the negligence of the truck driver, you are facing an uphill battle to make sure that the insurance company fairly covers your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This battle is exponentially harder if you try to go at it without the support of an Indiana truck accident lawyer.
Just think about it, large trucking companies have decades of experience defending against claims like yours. They have entire departments and teams of lawyers who are dedicated to risk management. What this basically means is that these individuals are dedicated to paying out the minimum compensation to accident victims. Indiana trucking companies have lawyers and investigators who are ready to respond to an accident at a moment’s notice. Their lawyers are biting at the bit to challenge your accident claim. If you want it to be a fair fight, you need the support and experience of a legal team, like the one we have at Isaacs & Isaacs. With more than 50,000 cases under our belt, we have seen every single trick that insurance companies try to use to defraud their victims, and we will not tolerate it.
Procrastination Is Your Enemy
Remember, when it comes to a trucking accident, time is not on your side. If the driver of the truck is not injured, the very first phone call they are going to make is to their company and their company’s insurance agent. While you are checking on the health and well-being of your family, the driver and his company is setting up a case to protect themselves against liability. The quicker you or your family members can engage our attorneys to investigate your accident, the likelier it is you can gather facts to prove that the collision was the truck driver’s fault and not yours.
The medical bills, lost wages, therapy bills, replacement of your automobile, and all of the other expenses that are generated by a trucking accident can quickly become overwhelming. Insurance companies count on this fact when they try to lowball you into accepting minimal compensation. If you or your loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, contact us today. Let us use our skill and experience to fight for you and help you get the compensation you justly deserve.
