In Indiana, thousands of people are killed or injured every year in motor vehicle accidents. Frequently, those injuries or deaths are the result of the carelessness of another driver.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, Indiana law allows you to bring a legal claim against the person whose negligence caused the injury. Additionally, you may have a claim against your own insurance carrier if the person responsible has no insurance or inadequate coverage.
Many Indiana motor vehicle accidents involve commercial trucks or semi-tractor and trailers. These accidents raise special issues. For one thing, the sheer size of these vehicles often leads to accidents with more catastrophic injuries, such as spinal injuries or brain injuries. Additionally, determining the proper party against whom to bring a legal action is often complicated by the legal arrangements between the driver of the truck, the owner of the truck, and the owner of the company using the truck to ship its goods.
