Commercial truckers are some of the most experienced drivers on the road, but they are certainly not immune to collisions. There are countless factors that contribute to 18-wheeler wrecks, but the vast majority stem from driver errors.
Truck accident claims can be incredibly complex for a variety of reasons. After most collisions involving regular vehicles, a negligent driver is usually liable for the damages. But in truck accident claims, it is often the case that a party other than the truck driver can be held liable.
To give your claim the best chance of success, Attorney Mike will perform a thorough investigation into your collision to identify all potentially liable parties.
Expert witness testimony often plays a critical role in truck accident cases. We can arrange testimony from accident reconstruction experts, engineers, medical experts, and financial experts.
Insurance companies throughout Louisiana know that our attorneys provide comprehensive and aggressive legal representation. We are not afraid to take your case to trial and are willing to go the extra mile for each of our clients.
If you intend to bring a claim against the truck driver or another party that contributed to your accident, you will need evidence to prove that the defendant breached a duty of care owed to you, and this breach of duty resulted in your injury or loss. Breaching a duty of care is also called “negligence.”
There are several types of negligence that contribute to truck accidents. For example, truck drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely. They breach this duty when they speed, violate Hours of Service Regulations, make illegal turns, and engage in other reckless behaviors. Trucking companies have a duty to provide adequate training to their drivers and to supervise them. They breach this duty when they fail to do so.
If a breach of duty contributed to your accident and you suffered an injury or loss as a result, you have the right to bring a claim against the liable party or parties. We are passionate about helping victims of personal injury and wrongful death pursue justice and compensation from those who have harmed them.
