Indianapolis Truck Accident Attorneys
The lawyers at Hankey Law Office are committed to helping people who have been hurt in a truck accident, whether they were a driver, pedestrian, motorcyclist, or passenger. Big rig trucks can cause life-altering accidents that, due to their sheer size, often prove to be fatal. Our firm has a combined experience of almost eight decades fighting truck companies and their insurance companies who don’t want to accept responsibility or pay the victims that they hurt.

You cannot fight large trucking companies on your own.

You should not have to shoulder the burden of costly medical bills, therapy expenses, lost wages, and other costs that you have incurred through no fault of your own. You may be entitled to fair and just compensation that will help you recover, rebuild, and move on with your life.

Frequently Asked Questions
Following an accident, it’s important that you get answers to your questions as quickly as possible, so we’ve included a few common questions that we receive. Many of these questions must be answered broadly because every case is unique, so if you don’t see your question below, or it is insufficiently answered for your case, contact us at (317) 634-8565 to set up an appointment to discuss your circumstances.
How much money can I be awarded?
This is nearly impossible to answer without knowing all of the details of your case. When you seek money for your injuries, there are many damages you may seek compensation for. This includes your medical bills, both present, and future, determined by whether you need follow-ups, therapy, or even future complications that may lead to additional injury. One other damage we could seek is from time lost from work. This either includes the hours of work you missed from the accident and hospital time alone, adding time if you need to recover, and adding even more damages if you may never be able to return to your job. Pain and suffering are two non-material damages that you may be able to seek as well. It’d be best to discuss your specific situation with an attorney.
When should I contact your firm?
Immediately after you have received medical attention and are able to contact us. Call us and we will get to work on your behalf. Don’t sign anything or give any official statements to any insurance companies until you have spoken with us. You need both a consultant and a spokesperson when the time is right. Insurance companies are famous for using your words against you, and everything that you are talking about will be noted in their files. Call us now so that we can be by your side through the claims process and can handle the phone calls, paperwork, and other tasks while you focus on what is most important: your recovery.
How much does hiring your law firm cost?
There is no money down to hire us in personal injury cases. Unlike civil cases, such as divorces, where it is customary to pay an attorney before the work even gets started, in accident cases, we are paid at the end. Our fees are only collected if we secure compensation for you. If you don’t win, then neither do we.
The injury attorneys of Hankey Law Office are ready to put our resources and experience to work for you. When it comes to truck accident claims, we know what it takes to build a persuasive case on your behalf. We will work with experts to prove that you were not at fault. We will look at the trucking company’s records, hiring practices, and training documents. We will ask for every bit of information that will form the basis of your case. By handling as many cases as we have over the years, we know what to look for and understand the laws that help you. If you don’t call an attorney, then you might not secure the compensation that you are owed. Call us at (317) 634-8565 to get started on your case today.
