Accident and Injury

Truck Accidents

The litigation of truck accident claims differs considerably from the recovery of damages in car accident cases. For the counsel you need for making the most of your truck accident damages claim,contact one of our New Orleans truck accident attorneys at the Charbonnet Law Firm.

Our lawyers represent local and out-of-state truck accident victims injured through the negligent operation or maintenance of semi tractor trailer rigs, construction equipment haulers, logging trucks, farm trucks, tankers, flatbeds, and other trucks anywhere in Louisiana. We also represent wrongful death clients in fatal truck accident cases. Our experience with the special demands of heavy vehicle accidents can help make sure that the evidence necessary to prove your claim is there when you need it, and not concealed by the defendant.

Truck Accidents Present Complex Legal Issues

There are many reasons why truck accidents are more challenging than private passenger vehicle collisions both for settlement and at trial:

  • The prospect of suing more than one defendant
  • The possibility of federal jurisdiction over cases involving out-of-state drivers or corporate owners
  • The detailed federal regulations relating to maintenance records and the safe operation and inspection of trucks in interstate commerce
  • The availability of commercial liability insurance to cover damages demands in the millions

A significant difference all by itself is the fact that our opponent is likely to be an enormous insurance conglomerate represented by a major law firm. When real money is on the table, the insurer exposed to the risk of liability in a truck accident case tries to leave nothing to chance.

Trucks Can Cause Significant Injury

One especially important distinction from the victim’s perspective is the greater likelihood of permanent injury to the brain, internal organs, spinal cord, or other vital systems. Just as we work hard to develop your case and the facts that will establish liability against one or more defendants, we also work closely with truck accident victims and their families to make sure that you’re receiving the medical treatment you need, including the proper diagnostics and rehabilitative services.
