Legal protections for truck accident victims in Indiana

Truck accidents can result in catastrophic injuries to victims, which is why victims of truck accidents in Indiana should be familiar with legal protections available to them. Personal injury legal protections can help truck accident victims with the injuries they have suffered.

Truck accidents can result in serious and debilitating injuries for which truck accident victims will likely need medical care and treatment and time away from work while they recover from their injuries. A personal claim for damages can help victims of truck accidents recover compensation for their physical, financial and emotional damages. They may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages.

Based on the circumstances, and the relationship between a truck driver and trucking company, a negligent truck driver or trucking company may be liable to compensate victims for the harm they have caused in a truck accident. Truck drivers and trucking companies are required to follow regulations for the safety of the public and if they fail to do so, they may be held responsible to compensate victims for the harms they suffered. Trucking regulations include limits on the number of hours truck drivers can drive in a single driving period; limits on the amount of weight that can be transported in a single trip; requirements on how to properly secure cargo; special licensing requirements; the requirement not to drive under the influence; and the requirement to submit to necessary drug and alcohol screenings.

There are important legal protections to help keep the public and truck accident victims safe. To ensure they are as protected as possible truck accident victims must be familiar with the legal protections available to them when harmed in a truck accident.
