Why Choose An Experienced Truck Accident Lawyer?
You may be asking yourself: why does it matter to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer? Think about it: a huge percentage of traffic in Indiana is made up of big rigs, semi trucks and large commercial trucks. These vehicles are traveling the major highways and interstates such as I-70, I-65, I-465, I-74, and I-69 all day, every day, especially because Indianapolis is a major hub for several large trucking companies. With that many trucks on the road, it’s no surprise to hear of yet another truck accident. But accidents with these vehicles are different from car accidents because of the size, weight, and potentially hazardous cargo being hauled by these large-scale commercial trucks. The injuries can be much worse and fatalities are much more likely.
When the stakes are so high, you need someone who can take what they’ve learned from previous trucking accidents and use it to represent you and your needs. Team Green is ready and waiting to hear your side of the story and use our experience as truck accident lawyers to help you navigate the legal process and get what you deserve.
How Our Truck Attorneys Can Help
Semi truck accidents in Indiana are unlike any other accident or personal injury case. The insurance policies for big rigs and trucking companies can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and that’s money no one wants to lose. That’s why trucking companies and their insurance carriers will aggressively defend themselves and work hard to minimize their liability. It’s very likely they will send a team to the scene of the accident right away to start building a case that may well be against you. Team Green is ready and waiting to hear your side of the story and use our experience as truck accident lawyers to help you navigate the legal process and get what you deserve.
If that happens and you do not know the laws that govern these types of accidents or insurance policies, you may make mistakes or trust the wrong people. If the police report says the truck driver is at fault, you may make assumptions about which of your bills will be covered by the trucking company that end up being incorrect. That’s why it’s so important to call experienced truck accident lawyers right away.
Here are a few steps our big rig attorneys will take when you contact us about your trucking accident:
- In a free case review, our compassionate team will listen to the story from your point of view and give you an honest review of what we think we can help with.
- Once we agree to work together, we will conduct a review of the truck accident scene and obtain holds on the vehicles to make sure they don’t get destroyed or lost.
- Work with a person called a reconstruction specialist to recreate the collision for a thorough understanding of exactly what happened.
- Research whether the proper licenses were obtained and current when the semi truck was being operated, whether the driver was eligible to be behind the wheel, obtaining records the driver kept during travel, verifying the vehicle’s weight and weight restrictions at the time of the accident, and more.
This is where our expertise comes into play. We know what questions to ask and where to go to get the information and answers you need for your case. Team Green will be your partner as you navigate the legal process, and we will do our part to help your case in every way we can.

Team Green is a different kind of law firm. We’re not going to make you promises we can’t deliver on. This is our promise to you: we will guide you through the legal process, working with you through straight talk and personal attention, and we’ll work for you with smart, aggressive representation to get the settlement or judgment you deserve. Other lawyers show their case results on their websites, but not only does that imply results they can’t guarantee — it’s against the Indiana Rules of Professional Conduct (Rule 7.1  (2)). But you should know that the results of one successful case does not tell us what will happen with you. We will work with you to set realistic expectations of the timeline and money that could be recovered for your unique case.
Frequently Asked Questions About Truck Accidents
It may surprise you to learn that most fatal accidents involving big rigs or commercial trucks happen on major roads rather than interstate highways. A fair number of trucking accidents in Indiana also happen on high-capacity city roads, country roads and state routes.
When it comes to insurance settlements, police reports do not always have the final say. Your best chance is to speak with a big rig accident attorney about your trucking accident to find out whether you might have a claim.
If you were partially at fault according to the report — 50% at fault or less — it’s possible that you could still be eligible for a settlement because of Indiana’s comparative negligence rules. We recommend contacting a lawyer right away.
Before you sign anything regarding your trucking or big rig accident claim, you should have it reviewed by a personal injury lawyer to help you decide whether it will be in the best interest of your case to sign. Trucking companies will often offer an initial settlement that only reflects a small portion of the claim’s fair value. If you put your signature on it, you may be giving away your rights to a larger or different claim.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulates the trucking industry at the national level, while the state of Indiana regulates it at the state level. If federal or state regulations are violated during the incident, that could increase the amount an accident victim or his/her family is eligible to receive. It can also help paint a picture of exactly who is liable. No matter what, it’s in your best interest to talk with an experienced commercial truck or big rig accident attorney about your specific case.
