What our clients are saying

“My wife was hit head-on by an F-350 that did not yield at an intersection from which, we found later, that she suffered irreparable nerve damage in her leg. We consulted with and hired Chris Garrison and his team to represent my wife. They guided us and handled everything from start to finish. We reached a successful settlement with the insurance company, thanks to Chris.”

Indianapolis Truck Accident Lawyers

Trucking companies know what they’re doing. Often, within minutes of an accident, their truck drivers have called them to report the accident. They’ve been through this before. They are ready for any personal injury claims that come their way.

From 2013 – 2017 accident fatalities in Indiana when the accident involves a large truck increased by over 6%.

Drivers of tractor-trailers are far less likely to be injured or killed in a semi-truck accident than occupants of a passenger vehicle. On top of that, truck drivers often have representation on retainers ready to go immediately after a driver is involved in a truck crash.

While you’re trying to heal, dealing with insurance companies, medical bills, and more, they’re building their defense. You don’t have time to waste.

Our law offices have fought for truck accident victims for over 40 years. We’ve seen just about everything. While you focus on healing, we’re collecting evidence, locating and interviewing witnesses, and building the strongest case possible for you.

Don’t give the trucking companies any more time to get ahead. If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, contact Garrison Law Firm today for a free consultation. We’re ready to get to work for you.

Low-impact truck accidents are just as dangerous

Even a low impact truck accident can cause significant personal injuries. The truck may weigh tens of thousands of pounds. The energy transferred to the occupant of a car is much greater than an impact with a passenger vehicle. 

The same is true in low impact train accidents. Often, it takes an expert’s scientific opinion to convince the commercial carrier’s insurer that the injuries were caused by a low impact accident.

Commercial carriers are governed by additional laws and regulations preventing them from driving for too long of a period without rest. They also may not travel with too much weight on board. There are many other restrictions that the average person may know nothing about. These laws and regulations provide opportunities for establishing liability on the commercial carrier.

If you have been injured in an accident with a truck or commercial carrier, you need truck accident attorneys of Garrison Law Firm.

Indiana Truck Accident Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Our Indianapolis truck accident attorneys field a lot of questions throughout the course of a case. Here are some of the most common questions our clients ask our team.

When should I go to the doctor after an accident with a semi-truck or tractor trailer?

Immediately after injuries become apparent. Regardless of what caused your accident, please seek medical assistance for any injuries you have sustained. This is both good for your health and your potential personal injury case.

How do I know I need an Indiana truck accident attorney?

If you have sustained any type of injury as a result of a collision with a large truck, semi-truck, or tractor-trailer, it is best to contact a truck accident attorney right away to understand your rights and what is at stake.

Will I need to go to court for a truck accident in Indiana?

Not necessarily. Many truck accident claims are settled out of court and prior to filing a lawsuit.

When is a lawsuit necessary for a semi-truck accident case?

A lawsuit will be necessary when either the defendant refuses to sufficiently compensate you for your injuries or if your case is coming up on the Statute of Limitations in Indiana.

How much is my truck accident case worth?

Every case is different. The overall value of your personal injury case depends on many factors. Some of those factors include

  • The severity of your injuries
  • Medical Bills incurred
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship

No attorney can give you an accurate value for your case until many of these factors are determined and that can take time.

Can I still recover compensation if I’m partially at fault?

Yes. Indiana has what is called, “comparative fault.” This means that if the semi driver is deemed 80% at fault for the accident and you 20% at fault, your compensation can be reduced by 20%.
