Indianapolis Truck Accident Attorneys
The lawyers at Hankey Law Office have been helping Indianapolis victims of tragic truck accidents, whether they have been hurt as a driver, pedestrian, motorcyclist, or passenger, for years. Big rig trucks can cause life-altering accidents and deaths. 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. We bring a big fight against big trucking companies that seek to use their huge resources to keep money out of the pockets of people who need it.
Our team of experienced lawyers understands that these kinds of accidents are usually more complicated than automobile accidents. Truck drivers can only operate so many hours a day and may fall asleep at the wheel, for example. They have toxic and explosive loads that can trigger horrible accidents. If one of their 18 tires explodes, it can cause a change reaction that tangles you and your car into a messy, deadly crash. We are ready to help. We want to help. We know our state’s laws, work with investigators, and cooperate with the police, so that your case is strong and winnable.
You cannot fight trucking companies on your own. We have seen tragic accidents where insurance companies barely have to cover the medical costs because lawyers for the trucking companies made sure that they did not pay what was fair. We don’t want to see this happen to you. You need to call us so we can talk you through your rights and your case, as soon as possible. If you are in the hospital right now, one of our team’s legal advisors will come to you. If you are at home, just call us directly so we can start fighting for your rights, today. We want to hear about what happened and get your help. You are not alone as we are here to get you back on your feet. Just call us at (317) 634-8565 for a free consultation about your case.
Do I need an attorney?
The short answer to this question is a simple yes. If you or a family member was hit by an 18-wheeler or even a smaller truck, you have every right to get legal counsel to help you and you absolutely should. In today’s complicated legal system, if you don’t have an attorney then you will not win. Insurance companies don’t play fair. They have large teams of their own attorneys who do nothing but figure out ways to pay as little as possible. You will not get a fair settlement so do not talk to or sign anything until you have hired us. Your livelihood could be at stake if you can’t work while you recover. They need to pay for your lost work for now and any in the future. You need us to fight for every penny that you deserve.
When you call us, we will listen to you and talk about your case. Everything that you tell us will be confidential. Even if you don’t hire us, we still will ensure the lawyer-client privilege.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 followups, therapy, or even future complications that may lead to 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 cleared the accident scene and it is safe to call. Please, just don’t talk to anyone. Call us right away, and we will talk to you. Don’t sign anything or say anything to insurance companies either. The trucking companies will try to get you to say what they want you to say. Your words could get twisted, and you don’t want that. You need both a consultant and a spokesperson when the time is right. Insurance companies are famous for using your words against you. Everything that you are talking about will be noted in their files. So call us now. We will be by your side the entire time. Call us (317) 634-8565.
