Muncie Truck Accident Attorneys Who Fight to Win
We can stand up to the trucking company on your behalf
Semi-trucks are a common sight on highways in and around Muncie, including US-35 and I-69. For the most part, we share the road with them every day without paying them much mind – but that changes in a hurry when they’re involved in accidents. Heavy trucks can cause massive damage and devastating injuries to people in smaller cars, and the trouble doesn’t end there.

That’s why you need Glaser & Ebbs on your side. We have over 100 years of combined legal experience, meaning we can even the odds when going up against the trucking company’s lawyers. We have the resources to move your case forward, and we will not back down. If you’ve been hurt in a truck accident in Muncie or anywhere in Delaware County, schedule your free consultation today.
The experience to take on all types of truck accident cases in Muncie
Tractor-trailers are harder to maneuver than smaller vehicles. They weigh many times more, have a higher center of gravity, and need to contend with huge blind spots. This can lead to serious accidents, including:
- Jackknife accidents, so called because of the distinctive angled shape formed when the cab folds against the trailer, can cause serious damage to smaller vehicles that hit the trailer or get caught between the cab and the trailer.
- Truck rollover accidents, which are unfortunately common because of the high center of gravity, can create a massive hazard for other vehicles and cause multi-vehicle pileups.
- Underride accidents, which involve a smaller vehicle sliding under the trailer of a semi-truck, often causing brain injuries, loss of limbs, and fatal injuries.
- Rear-end crashes, which can happen at any time because of a truck’s much longer braking distance, especially when approaching a slowdown or a work zone.
The trucking companies see this happen every day, and a bad accident is just another day at the office for them. They have rapid response teams on the scene of an accident within hours to gather evidence and start building their case. We know how to match them shot for shot and fight for your legal rights.
Getting to the bottom of truck accidents in Muncie
Part of the challenge in a truck accident case is securing evidence, which in many cases starts off as the trucking company’s property. We will take immediate legal action to preserve important evidence, such as the “black box” GPS data and the hours of service log, before it can be destroyed or hidden. Our goal is to prove negligence on the part of the trucker or the trucking company. If the driver was distracted, speeding, asleep at the wheel, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, we know how to hold them accountable.
Just as importantly, we will build the case for the full amount of compensation you deserve. Because of the sheer size of heavy trucks, truck accidents often cause severe, life-altering injuries. We will review your records and if necessary, hire expert witnesses to help us calculate just how much you’ve lost. You deserve full compensation under Indiana law. We will make a plan to get you there.
This is the only approach that works in trucking cases because the stakes are incredibly high. The trucking companies carry insurance policies with high limits to protect their assets. The insurance companies put their best attorneys and most experienced adjusters on these cases. We have the experience, resources, and motivation needed to hold the trucking industry accountable and get real results for injured Hoosiers.
