You may not have to go to court for a truck accident in Indianapolis, IN. Most auto accident cases we handle end with out-of-court settlements, but we will not hesitate to file a personal injury lawsuit and take your case to court if necessary to recover the maximum payout available to you based on the facts of your case.
The most common positive outcome of any personal injury case is a settlement negotiation and settlement agreement. Taking this type of case to court is an exception rather than the rule. However, it does happen relatively frequently, because we will not settle for less than your case is worth and leave you struggling to overcome accident-related losses and expenses.
The Trucking Company’s Insurance May Cover Your Damages
Just because you were the victim of a careless or negligent trucker and suffered injuries does not necessarily mean you will need to go to court to recover the compensation you need to pay for your medical care, cover lost wages, and collect other damages.
Indiana’s auto insurance laws imposed by the Indiana Department of Insurance require the trucking company to maintain insurance in case one of their employees causes an accident. Under vicarious liability laws, both the truck driver and their employer are accountable for your expenses and losses related to the accident.
Trucking companies generally carry large liability policies that can cover all or most of the injuries that occur in one of these accidents, which are often severe because of the size and weight of the semi-truck.
When you enlist our help with your case, we will take steps to document your damages. This includes:
- Collecting relevant documentation such as hospital bills, receipts, and estimates
- Requesting copies of your relevant medical records, when necessary
- Working with expert witnesses who can help us understand your injuries, prognosis, and future care needs
- Documenting your time away from work and any lasting impairments
Because we only take on auto accident and other personal injury cases, we know the most common damages victims suffer. We can identify even the most often-overlooked expenses and losses, helping you pursue the maximum payout possible based on the facts of your case.
We will file an insurance claim on your behalf, submitting documentation of your damages and outlining a strong case to show negligence and liability. This may be enough to convince the trucking company and their insurer to enter into settlement negotiations and agree to a just settlement in your case.
