JENNINGS LA TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Cars aren’t the only vehicles using America’s roadways; today, there are over 15 million trucks on the roads, two million of which are tractor trailers. Hiring a truck accident lawyer or personal injury attorney will ensure your case is handled quickly and to your satisfaction. Our Louisiana trucking accident lawyers at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court. You will work with an accident attorney who has extensive experience handling car and truck accident settlements.

If you are out of work due to your injuries, disability or illness you may be anxious about how you will pay your bills. On your own, you face difficulty getting compensated for your losses from powerful insurance companies whose policy is to delay and deny your claim. A consultation with an experienced trucking accident attorney at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can help you recover property damages, medical expenses, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering.

The question of who is responsible and what actually caused the accident are often much more complicated than in a simple traffic accident. There are many players involved, from the driver to the owner of the truck, and getting information about what went wrong often requires some industry know-how.

Complex truck accident litigation requires thorough investigation, the opinions of expert witnesses, and the creative use of discovery procedures after the suit is filed. Prompt investigation of the accident scene is crucial; swift action is what law firms provide. The trucking company will have its own team of investigators dispatched immediately. We fight for justice against insurance companies, corporations, and government agencies that elevate their bottom-line over the needs of hard-working citizens.

Truck drivers, through driving logs and other records, are held to a higher standard than drivers of passenger vehicles, and trucking companies are required to follow strict procedures involving hiring practices, truck maintenance, recording keeping, and time on the job.

Because the web of players in the trucking industry can be complicated and getting information from the right sources may require some industry know-how, it is very important to get advice or representation from a personal injury lawyer. Please contact the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess. If our lawyers do not collect money damages for you, you don’t owe an attorney fee. We don’t get paid unless we successfully recover compensation for you and your family.

In 2014, 67 people were injured as a direct result of 46 trucking accidents in Jefferson Davis Parish.
