Indiana Trucking Accident Law Firm Represents Injured Plaintiffs
Personal injury lawyers in Dyer protect your right to full, fair compensation
When 80,000 pounds of steel traveling down the road at 55 miles per hour causes a big-rig accident, a 2,500-pound passenger car doesn’t stand a chance, and the people inside risk catastrophic injury or worse. On major arteries such as U.S. Highways 30 and 41 and broad surface streets including Calumet and Torrence avenues, semi-trucks traveling in and around Dyer can gather quite a bit of momentum, and any resulting accident can be devastating. But while you are dealing with the physical, financial and emotional consequences, the at-fault trucking company is most concerned with minimizing its liability and protecting its monetary interests.
The Dyer truck accident lawyers at Rubino, Ruman, Crosmer & Polen immediately take steps to protect you. Our legal team possesses a total of more than 100 years of combined experience in personal injury and wrongful death cases. We aggressively pursue the maximum recovery for injured victims.
Our team approach provides high-quality litigation services
Large trucking companies possess substantial resources to gather evidence, interview witnesses and spin facts to cast their driver and their company in the best possible light. Even individual owner-operators get assistance from large insurance companies with deep legal departments. Fortunately, Rubino, Ruman, Crosmer & Polen matches their resources with our experienced team of attorneys and investigators who promptly preserve evidence that supports the truth about the accident.
For each trucking accident we undertake, we dedicate at least two attorneys, a paralegal, a private investigator and other essential team members. Our on-staff private investigator is available to immediately inspect the scene, photograph evidence, meet with clients and witnesses, and collect documentation that is crucial to the successful outcome of your claim. We maintain solid relationships with knowledgeable accident reconstructionists, engineers, mechanics, medical doctors and other professionals who work closely with our team to thoroughly examine the facts, develop innovative strategies and testify in court.
Determining liability is the key to delivering excellent results
There is no case for recovery unless you can prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the truck driver, trucking company, or a third party is responsible for causing the accident that injured you. Identifying the proper defendants and proving liability requires extensive due diligence. We closely examine all possible causes, including:
- Trucker fatigue
- Reckless driving and/or speeding
- Distracted, careless, or aggressive driving
- Tire blowout
- Negligence by another passenger car driver
- Mechanical failure
- Unbalanced cargo load
- Faulty road conditions
- Faulty highway design or construction
Often, the tractor is owned by one company and the trailer by another, with both subcontracted to another independent business entity who hires the driver from yet another corporation, and all must be held accountable. Municipalities and government agencies may also be responsible when unsafe road conditions or debris contributed to the accident.
However, even after pinpointing liability for a tractor-trailer crash, a plaintiff must still prove that injuries resulted from the crash and not some other cause, and that the injuries are every bit as serious as the victim alleges. Defense counsel will introduce medical experts to undercut your evidence. If you have suffered serious or catastrophic injury, such as spinal trauma, severe bone fracture, traumatic brain injury or loss of limb, you need an experienced legal team that is prepared to prove the extent of your injuries to help ensure a full recovery.
Our Indiana trucking accident attorneys are determined to prove that justice prevails even against powerful defendants.
