About Truck Accident Lawsuits

Trucks are the most dangerous vehicles on the highways. They are big, heavy, and hard to maneuver and even harder to stop. About Truck Accident LawsuitsConsequently, truck drivers are required to meet higher and more rigid standards. Unfortunately, those standards are often ignored and/or abused by truck drivers who do not get enough rest, rely on drugs or pills to keep them awake, and fail to maintain accurate records of their operation. Certainly the vast majority of truck drivers are law-abiding drivers hired by reputable companies. However, when a driver and/or the trucking company abuse their responsibilities, the results can be and often are catastrophic. If you are seriously injured or a member of your family is killed, you need a lawyer and a law firm that has experience in digging into records maintained by the company and it's driver. These are not only records of the operation of the truck, but also it's maintenance records. Over-the-road trucks maintain computerized "global positioning systems" (GPS) that not only show where the truck was at any given time, but when it was running, how fast it was traveling, and when the brakes were applied. This can be critical to determining the specifics of the accident, especially since there are often conflicting estimates of vehicle speeds by witnesses. Our Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers are familiar with the steps necessary to obtain all these records, and we have access to experts in the field who assist us in interpreting them. Once we determine the facts and details of the accident, we turn to obtaining all the information to present to present to the trucking company's insurance carrier or to a jury at trial.

My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.

Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.

Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
