Imagine that you and your family are driving home after spending the afternoon at the Freeman Army Airfield Museum. You driving down A Avenue and there is another automobile in front of you. As both vehicles approach the intersection at 1st Avenue, a semi-truck flies through the intersection and runs full speed into the vehicle in front of you. You step on your brakes and are able to avoid the collision. You look back at your family, and you are thankful that everyone in your car is all right. However, you look at the wreckage of the passenger vehicle that was in front of you and realize that the life of that family has been forever altered.
The effects that a truck accident can have on a family are life-changing. Semi-trucks that are fully loaded can weigh in excess of 80,000 pounds. This means that in some cases they will weigh 40 times as much as a passenger vehicle. For this reason, when collisions like the one mentioned above happen, it is the occupants of the passenger vehicle who suffered the most.
Every year, tens of thousands of people are injured or lose their life as a result of truck accidents. In a good portion of these cases, the accident was caused because of the negligence of the driver, the trucking company that owns the vehicle, or the manufacturer of the vehicle. In our 22 years of experience, we at Isaacs & Isaacs have seen firsthand the devastating effects that truck accidents can have on a family’s life. It is for this reason that we are committed to seeing to it that Indiana residents who are victims of trucking accidents get every dime that is coming to them.
Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
You may ask yourself, why do I need a lawyer to defend me if it is clear that the truck driver, their company, or the truck manufacturer is at fault? Simply put, when it comes to truck accidents, nothing is ever clear and nothing is ever easy. From the moment the accident happens, the trucking company sets a mechanism in motion that is designed to insulate them from liability. This means that investigators, insurance agents, and Seymour lawyers spring into action attempting to deflect the blame for the accident on you. While they are doing all of this to protect themselves, what are you doing? In most cases, you’re just trying to recover from the accident you were in. This is why you need a lawyer like those found at Isaacs & Isaacs. We have been fighting for Indiana residents for more than two decades. While you are recovering from your injuries, we are fighting for you.
In order to get the compensation you deserve after a truck accident, you need a Seymour lawyer who has the resources and experience to investigate the accident, interview the people who are involved, be in contact with law enforcement, request any pertinent documentation that the insurance company or the trucking company may have, collect your medical bills, assess your damage, and put a number on how much your injuries are worth. That is what the personal injury lawyers at Isaacs & Isaacs do best. We have garnered more than $700,000,000 in judgments for accident victims.
We Are Not Afraid
Large trucking companies and their insurance companies use their size and their resources to intimidate accident victims. They have no shame in telling accident victims that if they do not accept the lowball offer of compensation from the insurance company, they may walk away with nothing. Just imagine how that feels. You’re injured, you may be in the hospital, your loved ones are injured, and your expenses are growing every day. And the large insurance company threatens you saying that if you don’t take their offer, you will be left with nothing.
When we at Isaacs & Isaacs hear of circumstances like this, we feel emboldened to go after trucking companies, insurance companies, and anyone who is liable for your accident. We have done this in some of our 50,000 cases, and we will do it for you. If we choose to accept your case, we will not allow insurance companies to trick you into a quick settlement or into accepting a settlement that you will regret later. The trucking companies have their own interests at heart, but we are only concerned about protecting your interests.
From the moment we choose to accept your case, we will set a mechanism in motion that is designed to prove what really happened at the accident. Let us do the work for you. Call us today for a free consultation.
