Have you been severely injured or lost a family member in a truck accident? I am attorney Marc Sedwick, and I have extensive experience with truck accident cases. I have worked tirelessly to help individuals in southern Indiana whose lives have been changed by these tragic accidents involving semis, delivery trucks and other large commercial vehicles.
You can rely on me for knowledgeable, compassionate representation during this difficult time. Before becoming a personal injury lawyer, I worked as a claims adjustor and then as a defense attorney for insurance companies, so I know how they operate. This experience is invaluable, and I use it to zealously advocate for my clients in truck accident cases. Speak with me about your case. Your consultation is free.
Accidents Caused By Driver Error
One of the most common causes of truck accidents is driver error. Truck drivers are often paid based on the speed at which they can deliver their loads. Drivers sometimes don't follow the strict regulations governing the amount of time they are allowed to be driving between sleep periods. They might also be driving too fast in an effort to make a deadline. While there are laws and regulations prohibiting these and other dangerous activities, they are not always followed by drivers or enforced by commercial trucking companies.
The Consequences Of Truck Accidents Are Severe
The extreme size and weight of large commercial trucks make them dangerous vehicles in an accident. These accidents often cause serious or fatal injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, paralysis, broken or crushed bones, amputations, burns and internal organ damage.
If you have suffered any of these injuries or lost a loved one, I may be able to help you recover financial compensation for losses such as:
- Medical expenses
- Long-term care
- Lost income and benefits
- Pain and suffering
- The loss of a loved one
Each case is unique, and I will discuss the specifics of yours when I evaluate your claim.
