On the busy streets and highways of New Orleans, it doesn't take much for a motor vehicle accident to occur. When this accident includes a truck, the effects can be devastating. Even larger passenger vehicles have nothing on the size of large trucks and commercial vehicles. Semi-trucks often outweigh cars by thousands of pounds and may be carrying hazardous material which increase risks.
After an 18-wheeler accident, people can find themselves struggling to recover. They may have suffered the loss of a loved one or serious physical damage. The financial costs of the accident can add up quickly, especially if someone is unable to work as the person recovers.
This is where our law firm can help. We can help people recover the costs of the accident from a negligent party. If a truck driver's negligence caused the accident, then that person is responsible for paying medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering and other costs caused by the truck accident. A truck company may also be held liable in some situations.
Our firm has years of experience handling these types of cases. We can negotiate with truck companies and insurance companies to ensure that you are treated fairly. We can also file a court case, in situations where a settlement is not possible.
In our pursuit for justice, we can conduct an investigation of the accident to make sure all the facts are known. This can help to show the full extent of the driver's negligence. Using these facts, we can advocate for your financial needs as you focus on your recovery.
