BEAUREGARD PARISH TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Have you been injured in a truck accident in Beauregard Parish, La?

If you are the victim of a trucking accident the question of who is responsible and what actually caused the accident are often much more complicated than in a simple traffic accident.

Accidents which involve commercial trucks are some of the most dangerous, because of the size and weight of the vehicles. They can weigh up to 80,000 pounds if they are full of cargo and are more difficult to stop and maneuver in the case of dangers on the roadway. As such, it is not uncommon to hear about trucks getting in accidents with other cars. However, if you believe that a negligent driver was at fault for the accidents which caused your injuries, it is in your best interest to hire a Louisiana truck accident attorney to represent you.  

The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess will help you determine whether you have a valid claim and how your case will be presented. An experienced Beauregard Parish trucking accident attorney can provide you with an initial consultation FREE of charge to you regardless of whether you retain our services.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

There are a number of different causes of serious trucking accidents which lead to serious or fatal injuries than can physically and financially hurt you. This includes the following:

  • Unmaintained vehicles
  • Defective auto parts
  • Aggressive driving
  • Speeding
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Distracted driver
  • Drugged or drunk driver

Even though large trucks are only responsible for 3% of injury-causing motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents typically cause much greater harm than ordinary traffic accidents due to the large size and heavy weight of most trucks.

When trucking companies fail to meet their responsibilities, the trucking accident lawyers at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess respond by aggressively seeking restitution for victims who have been seriously damaged by the company’s negligence and disregard for safety. We have successfully represented numerous individuals in obtaining compensation after accidents involving commercial trucks. Victims may recover damages suffered as a result of the accident, such as lost work wages, hospital bills, and physical/emotional trauma, but often times it takes an experienced accident lawyer to fight for the compensation you deserve.
