This week we heard about a jack-knifed semi-truck in Franklin, a southern suburb of Indianapolis, which wound up closing the northbound lane for three hours. Details are sparse, but initial reports suggest that at least one person was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries. We hope that this Indianapolis truck accident only resulted in a minor injury and the person’s recovery is swift.
Often times when the Interstate is shut down from a big truck accident there are significant injuries. Anyone of us who have spent time driving the highways (and back roads) of Indiana, knows all too well the anxiety of driving next to, or being passed by, a big tractor trailer. It can be quite humbling to see and feel the immense size difference between our passenger cars and a big rig. It is very easy to understand how much trouble we could be in if a truck lost control while we were within range.
When a truck (or any other vehicle for that matter) is involved in an accident the resulting chaos afterwards eventually settles down and the people involved are left to take stock of their new circumstances. Maybe there’s only vehicle damage, maybe there’s only minor injuries, but there are often times when the aftermath includes serious injuries and, unfortunately at times, loss of life.
These are the times when individuals and families need to focus on themselves and their loved ones. These are not the times to try and understand the insurance industry and the rules they play by. This is why if you are involved in a truck accident in Indianapolis or anywhere in the great state of Indiana, we urge you to consult with an experienced attorney who specializes in personal injury and property loss.
