Semi Truck Accidents Whenever You Are Hurt By a Business, We Make It Our Business to Help.

Indiana Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer

Trucks are Everywhere in Indiana and Some are Dangerous

Indiana’s official state motto is the "Crossroads of America" for a reason.

More semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks travel across Indiana than any other state in the union. As a result, I-94 is one of the most dangerous roads and highways in the entire nation.

Trucking accidents, also known as commercial motor vehicle accidents, involve big rigs, 18-wheelers, delivery trucks/cars, trailers, buses, taxis, construction vehicles, and the like. There are currently more than five million commercial motor vehicles registered in the United States and approximately 500,000 trucking accidents annually.

The commercial trucking industry is an important and huge part of our nation's commercial enterprises. Trucks carry essential goods and supplies. Yet, these vehicles are dangerous in the hands of many.

Attorney Jeff "JJ" Shaw has represented numerous Hoosiers who have been seriously injured, or lost a loved one, as the result of a trucking accident.

For Shaw Law, Semi-Truck Accidents Are Personal

Semi-truck accidents can result in serious injuries, even death. Jeff “JJ” Shaw and the attorneys at Shaw Law know this better than anyone.

Attorney Shaw lost his mother as a teenager due to the carelessness of a semi-truck driver in Indiana. What Attorney Shaw and his family didn’t know back then, was that an experienced lawyer—one who knows a thing or two about semi-truck accidents—could have helped them recover something for their untimely loss.

Today, Attorney Shaw represents victims of semi-truck accidents and helps them, and their families, get what they deserve.

Trucking Accidents are Different Than Auto Accidents

Trucks are big and dangerous. They can—and do—kill people.

The number one goal of every trucking company and their truckers, should be: "Let’s Do Our Job Safely!" NOT: "Let's Go Faster, to Make More Money!" Unfortunately, both kinds of truckers and trucking companies are out there.

Most people do not have experience with the commercial trucking industry, except when sharing the roads with trucks, or upon hearing of truck-related accidents. In reality, commercial motor carriers must comply with strict regulations.

Special state and federal laws apply to commercial truck operators and owners, which do not apply to automobile owners. Many of these codes and regulations can be found in the federal registry. Others are unique to the state of Indiana.

When you, or a loved one, are injured in a truck accident, it is important that your lawyers are familiar with the trucking industry regulations and codes.

Jeff “JJ” Shaw and the Indiana truck accident lawyers at Shaw Law have firsthand knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Rules and Regulations. These federal regulations are required to be followed by everyone associated with the trucking outfit: the driver of the truck, the owner of the truck, and the owner of the trailer.

In most Indiana truck accident cases, the driver of the truck is not the owner of the truck, or the owner of the trailer being pulled. In commercial truck accident cases against FedEx, UPS, Walmart, Amazon, Coke, Pepsi, U-Haul, Budget, and other types of rental or commercial trucks, or any other corporation, it is usually not the driver that owns the truck.

Because a majority of truck accident cases in Indiana are against large corporations, it is crucial that you hire a law firm that has the experience, the knowledge, and the technological know-how, to battle these giant companies over long periods of litigation.

In order to prove these Indiana truck accident cases, Jeff “JJ” Shaw, and the Attorneys at Shaw Law, regularly work with accident reconstruction experts and other specialists to show fault on the part of the company and driver.
