Schererville Truck Accident Lawyer
Schererville is a town in Lake County, Indiana, that for hundreds of years has been at the intersection of foot and wagon trails. Now days it is a crossroads of several major US highways. Not surprisingly with major traffic interchanges comes car and truck accidents. In particular, collisions involving semi-tractor trailers and cars can be very serious and can result in catastrophic injuries, property damage, and even wrongful death. Unfortunately, truck accident claims can also be very involved and difficult to pursue, and it is critical to have an experienced trial lawyer at your side to help.
A truck accident can be much more serious than a regular traffic accident between two or more passenger cars. The increased danger is due primarily to the size of a commercial truck, which can weigh 70,000 pounds or more, while a passenger car weigh less than 3,000 pounds.
If you have been involved in a truck accident, it is important that you contact an experienced Schererville truck accident lawyer right away. While the consequences of a truck accident can be more severe, truck accidents can occur for many of the same reasons as passenger vehicle accidents, but typically, when trucks are involved the collision may be the result of an oversized load, an overloaded truck, improperly secured loads, excessive speed, aggressive driving, or fatigued drivers that have been driving beyond their maximum driving hours.
