Accidents involving large trucks and semis are often far more severe than ordinary collisions due to the disparity in size between a large semi and a car. Speaking with an experienced attorney about your truck-related accident is vitally important to ensure you receive sufficient compensation for your serious injuries.
Any truck that you or any other person owns in a personal capacity will follow the normal rules and procedures of car accidents. However, in the event that the truck is acting in the course and scope of a business activity, then liability may attach to the business as well as the driver. Regardless of whether the truck is for personal or business usage, it is important to document the damages to yourself and your vehicle in the event that insurance is unable to appropriately compensate you.
Indiana follows comparative fault liability, where a plaintiff can still recover even if they are partly at fault in an accident. Only if the plaintiff is at greater than 50% fault will he or she be barred from recovery. Otherwise, the amount recovered will be reduced proportionately to the plaintiff's fault.
