A Committed Team To Fight For Your Truck Injury Compensation
It is hardly a secret that truck accidents commonly result in the most devastating injuries. When these accidents take place, victims may find it difficult to obtain the resources they need to cover the costs of their injuries and other consequences from the accident.
Instead of navigating a truck accident claim alone, let Harper and Harper, LLC handle your legal needs while you focus on your health. Our lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience representing injured people throughout northwestern Indiana, and that experience can be your advantage in your truck accident claim.
Finding The Liable Party
One of the biggest challenges in a truck accident claim is determining who is ultimately responsible for your injuries. In most cases, the liable party is one of three different groups:
- The driver who hit you – If the truck driver who caused your accident was neglecting traffic laws, driving under the influence or distracting themselves while driving, they may be liable for your injuries.
- The driver’s employer – If the company that hired the driver failed to recognize or uncover a dangerous driving history, failed to adequately train the driver, or forced the driver to work hours beyond regulation, they could be at fault.
- A parts manufacturer – If the accident that caused your injuries was the result of a defective component of the truck, the manufacturer of the part or possibly the company that sold it might be responsible for allowing a defective part to make it into the vehicle.
Trucking companies usually have skilled legal and insurance teams to minimize their liability and the compensation they pay in these cases, and our job as your legal representation is to fight to maximize the outcome in your claim. We are prepared to use our fast negotiation and litigation skills to help you obtain the optimal outcome in your situation.
