We’re Your Advocates After A Devastating Truck Accident
A large portion of traffic accidents that happen in Indiana every year involves crashes caused by trucks.
For more than 30 years, Sarkisian Personal Injury Lawyers has represented injured people and the families of those killed in these types of crashes. Contact our legal team today for answers to your questions about truck accidents and to learn more about how we can help after you have been injured or lost a family member in a trucking accident.
Causes Of Truck Accidents
Causes of commercial trucking accidents include:
- Driver fatigue or inadequate training
- Distracted driving such as texting or eating while driving
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Improper service to the truck (such as a poorly maintained braking system)
One of the most important things your truck accident attorney must do is investigate the case as quickly as possible, while evidence is still available. At Sarkisian Personal Injury Lawyers, we developed a procedure that we use to learn about the safety history of truck drivers and the companies employing them. This allows us to build a solid, informed case for you.
Determining liability can be complex, and our lawyers can help you determine who is at fault in your collision. Call us today to learn more about how we evaluate risk factors and investigate the circumstances around each crash.
Working With Insurance Companies To Obtain A Fair Settlement
Some of the first people you will speak to after a truck accident may be from an insurance company, but their goal is to settle the claim for as little as possible. Accepting the first settlement can leave accident victims and their families with fewer funds than they need to cover the expenses that arise from the accident.
By working with an experienced truck accident attorney instead of accepting a settlement right away, you can protect your right to fair compensation. This may include damages related to hospital expenses, physical therapy, lost wages and other costs related to your accident.
