Tractor Trailer Accidents

Kentucky and Indiana Trucking Accidents Attorney

Trucks are dangerous, especially 18-wheelers. A crash involving a tractor-trailer is often fatal or involves very serious injuries. Because of the complexity of trucking accidents and the serious injuries involved, you should retain an experienced attorney who understands trucking regulations and trucking accidents.

At Bach Hamilton LLP in Henderson, Kentucky, we have experience representing trucking accident victims and their families in Indiana, Kentucky and throughout the Midwest. We put over 50 years of combined experience and our network of experts and professionals to work for you. For additional information about us, please visit our Firm Overview page.

We understand the complexity of trucking laws and the difficulty of investigating the various parties who may be liable for a trucking accident, such as trucking companies, the truck driver, the truck loaders, the owner of the truck, the owner of the trailer, and vehicle manufacturers.

In addition, we understand how to properly investigate the many causes of a trucking accident, including driver fatigue, drug or alcohol use, whether the driver was properly trained and licensed, whether the truck was properly inspected and in safe working condition, as well as the large blind spots trucks have, the inability to stop quickly, taking wide turns, inappropriate lane changes, load balancing, and many other causes of trucking accidents.

Contact us ASAP if you or a family member was involved in a trucking accident. Do not speak to anyone about your accident until you have secured legal counsel. Even seemingly innocent answers to basic questions can affect your ability to recover fair compensation. Also, the sooner we can begin our investigation, the stronger the case we can build. We need to see the accident scene (preferably while it is still fresh), interview witnesses, gather evidence and take pictures. We want to aggressively pursue your claim and work to maximize your recovery. You deserve compensation, and we are prepared to fight for you to get it.
