After A Truck Accident, You Will Face Serious Challenges. We Can Help.
In addition to the physical recovery and worries about paying medical bills and covering lost wages, you may be looking at bringing a lawsuit against a trucking company. Not only are trucking companies strongly incentivized to fight these cases aggressively, but they are also well-financed and usually employ a team of lawyers working to minimize the damage. No one wants to be in this situation, and it may seem like everyone is against you.
At Schad & Schad, P.C., we are on your side. Our experienced lawyers are not afraid to stand up to the trucking company, their insurance company and their lawyers, to get you the full compensation you deserve.
From our office in New Albany, we are a local firm serving clients throughout southern Indiana. We have more than 150 combined years of experience among our lawyers handling all types of 18-wheeler accident claims, including the most catastrophic and fatal accident claims. We can help you get the compensation you need.
The sad news is that most collisions involving big rigs are pretty bad. The size, weight and speed of trucks make it rare for anyone to come out of a truck accident without broken bones, paralysis or other major injuries, and many cases result in at least one death.
Frequent causes of truck accident include:
- Overweight trucks
- Drug and alcohol use behind the wheel
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Unsafe and poorly maintained equipment
- Unstable loads
Whatever the cause of your accident, our lawyers know how to do the research to establish that it was the fault of the driver or the trucking company. We know how to bring these claims successfully so you can obtain the maximum compensation award available.
We prepare every case for trial. When cases go to trial, we are ready to fight. In other cases, our preparation helps us negotiate with the other side to improve the payout for our clients.
There is a lot that goes into this type of litigation. Our attorneys know how to navigate this complicated landscape, so we can help you through your entire case.
We are available to take your call 24/7.
