Lafayette Truck Accident Lawyers
Louisiana 18-Wheeler Injury Attorneys
Because of the I-10 corridor, the oil fields and other industries, there is a lot of 18-wheeler traffic in southern Louisiana — and, unfortunately, a lot of trucking accidents. At the Joseph Joy & Associates law firm, in Lafayette, Louisiana, our personal injury lawyers have the experience it takes to help those injured in truck accidents recover compensation for their injuries or the wrongful death of their loved one.
Louisiana semi-truck accident injuries are nearly always serious — and many are fatal. To ensure that you receive the compensation you need and are entitled to, talk to a lawyer who has made a career of protecting the rights of personal injury victims and the families of wrongful death victims.
Our Truck Accident Investigation Will Be Thorough
Our Louisiana truck accident lawyers will work quickly to determine the cause of your truck crash and build your case. Our investigations are thorough:
- A truck accident investigation requires an expert who specializes in 18-wheeler and other heavy vehicle accidents — we know who to call.
- We will examine maintenance logbooks and assess whether all federal highway regulations were followed.
- There may also be more than one potentially liable party. Were the tractor and trailer owned separately? Were they leased?
Did Truck Driver Error or Negligence Cause Your Truck Accident?
Because of the pressures of meeting deadlines, poor training or poor hiring practices, the cause of many 18-wheeler accidents can be traced to driver error. Was the driver speeding, tailgating or passing improperly? Did lack of sleep, drug use or alcohol cause the driver to be reckless? Did the driver have a CDL (commercial driver’s license)? We will find answers to these questions.
Appropriate Medical Care Is Essential to Your Recovery After a Truck Accident
Truck accidents often cause serious, life-changing injuries, including burns, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. You need to seek immediate medical treatment. If you do not have medical insurance or are otherwise unable to afford proper care, talk to our law firm. We may be able to help you get the immediate medical attention you need. Do not be talked into signing a settlement until you know how bad your truck accident injuries are and what you will need for recovery.
