We have all been on the highway and seen a flat bed truck carrying a mobile home or another wide load. There are usually two accompanying vehicles with blinking lights, one leading the truck and one following. Inevitably, we find ourselves nervous, wondering if we should attempt to pass, and if it is safe to do so. As drivers in this situation, anxieties are understandable. Wide and oversized truck loads are by nature unstable. Truck drivers and supporting vehicles must exercise extreme caution, monitoring their speed and surrounding vehicles. One mistake and the potential for a serious accident becomes a horrible reality.
When an oversized or tandem truck has caused your accident, the New Orleans oversized truck accident attorneys at the Charbonnet Law Firm, LLC, is here to help. Backed by a combined 100 years of experience, our attorneys have a special focus on truck crash injuries. There are many unique aspects to truck accident cases that you do not see in other personal injury claims, and we know them all. Through use of industry experts and accident scene reconstructionists, our firm is skilled in securing the crucial evidence needed to prove truck driver negligence.
Our dedicated legal team of tandem truck accident lawyers will always focus on obtaining the best possible results for your unique circumstances. Many times, this can be accomplished through a negotiated settlement agreement with an insurance company. However, we will never allow insurers to bully or intimidate you into accepting a low-ball offer. We know a reasonable offer when we see one. If we feel you are not being offered fair compensation, we are always prepared to fight for your rights during a trial. Having previously defended trucking companies, our truck accident lawyers understand how they build their cases, and use this to our current clients’ advantage both in and outside of court.
