Custy Law Firm

Indiana and Illinois Transportation Lawyer

Indiana and Illinois Transportation

When we travel by car, bus, train, motorcycle or air, we count on other drivers to follow the laws and be safe. Unfortunately, people don’t always do so which causes wrecks and injuries. 

Because of the speeds and sizes of vehicles, the injuries of those involved in collisions are often severe and long-term. The injuries are only made worse when one is unable to return to work, pay for medical expenses or understand the information different insurance representatives are telling them. We can help.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a wreck and another is at fault, we are available to talk and begin the process of holding those responsible accountable for the harm caused.

Trucking Wrecks

Trucking is big business in the United States. Unfortunately, when a semi-tractor and trailer or commercial motor vehicle is involved in a wreck, the consequences are typically catastrophic or deadly. For example, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reports that there were 411,000 police-reported crashes involving large trucks in 2014 and over 3,400 of them resulted in one or more deaths. 

Truck wreck cases are more complex than a typical passenger vehicle wreck. Trucking companies in the United States are held to a myriad of rules and regulations at the state and federal levels to protect the people of our communities.  Moreover, the sheer size and force of the commercial motor vehicles oftentimes requires expert analysis to pinpoint the reasons and the way that the wreck occurred. Extra effort is involved in these types of wrecks to ensure that vital evidence is preserved for trial.
