What to do after an accident
Because of the large size and enormous weight of semis, 4-wheelers, 18-wheelers, and other trucks, trucking accidents typically cause terrible damage to the people involved. A serious trucking accident in Indiana can drastically affect a person's life, requiring hospitalization, surgery, expensive medical bills, lost wages, pain and emotional trauma, and sometimes even the wrongful death of loves ones.
Some of the most common causes of these accidents include:
- Truck driver negligence
- Truck driver fatigue
- Blind spots
- Use of drugs or alcohol
- Poor road or weather conditions
- Defective trucks
- Improper truck maintenance
- Improperly loaded trucks
- Spilled loads
You and your family can help avoid serious trucking accidents by giving trucks ample room to turn or change lanes, staying out of blind spots, and generally staying clear of trucks on the road.What to do if you have been in a trucking accident in Lake County or Porter County
