Pursuing Justice For Accident Victims In Indiana

What does it mean when a semitruck has a jackknife crash?

Imagine you're driving a semitruck in the dead of Indiana winter. Unbeknownst to you, there's a patch of ice along the highway, situated at exactly the area where you need to suddenly stop to avoid a collision. You slam on the breaks, but the truck begins to slide. The next thing you know, the wheels of your trailer are sliding faster than the wheels of your cabin, and they're causing your semitruck to slowly spin toward a sideways direction.

Thousands of commercial trucks make the roads risky

In 2016, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported that there were 524,058 interstate and intrastate motor carriers in the United States. These include government carriers, for-hire carriers, private carriers and dual-purpose carriers (hire and not-for-hire). The FMCSA regulates the drivers who are working in the United States along with those who require commercial drivers' licenses (CDLs). The agency believes approximately 5.9 million commercial motor vehicles are in operation within the United States presently. The total number is increasing as well.

What are the regulations that apply to motorcoach drivers?

Upon entering a bus, one of the first things on your mind may be whether or not the driver is any good. You hope that he or she has had enough sleep and that the driver is well-educated in driving the vehicle you're in. The last thing you want is to be involved in a crash because of a poorly trained or distracted driver.

Make a claim quickly after a truck crash for compensation

After an accident you must make an insurance claim in the right manner. It's one of the first things you need to do after you're in a crash. The only thing that should really precede initiating this claim is seeking the medical care you may need following the collision.

This is what to expect if you're in a serious truck crash

If you're in a truck accident and expect a settlement, there are things you should know. For instance, did you know that your claim for compensation goes through the civil court, not the criminal court? It's completely possible for the person who struck you to face criminal charges separate from your civil lawsuit.
