West Lafayette Truck Accidents

Located near the Wabash River, West Lafayette’s sister city, Lafayette, is right across the Wabash River and is host to over 29,000 Indiana citizens. West Lafayette is known for being densely populated and the home of the prestigious Purdue University.

Until the late 1880's, West Lafayette was known as Chauncey, a modest, quiet town until the opening of Purdue University in 1869. Because of the university, the town quickly grew in size and population, and soon, established itself as an independent city from its sister city, Lafayette.

West Lafayette continues to thrive from the culture and diversity that Purdue University and its resident citizens have to offer. Scenic bike trails and beautiful parks decorate the city, a great asset for its residents. The city continues to offer ample opportunities for locals and visitors, while being one of the safest and healthiest cities in America.

Because of West Lafayette’s growing population and popularity, traffic swells with many trucks and cars congesting its roadways. Since college students inhabit the city during the school year, West Lafayette experiences more traffic than ever before. Especially around I-65 and US 52, large trucks block the road, generating accidents, and in some cases these accidents result in tragic deaths.

Thankfully, due in large part to modern safety features on cars and trucks, Indiana highway deaths and injuries continue to decline. However, the personal injury attorneys at Montross Miller continue to receive calls on a weekly basis from those around the state who have either suffered personal, serious injury or are grieving the loss of a loved one because of another driver's negligence and inattention.

Client Reviews
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.
A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.
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.
