Truck Accident Negligence
Trucking companies are heavily regulated by the federal government. We investigate whether the semi driver and the owners of the rig have complied with the law. Many truck crashes are caused by fatigued over-the-road haulers who have been driving without the required rest period. Other crashes are the result of poor training or negligent hiring of truckers with poor driving records or criminal histories. Still other crashes are caused by the condition of the truck itself – illegally overweight or improperly loaded, or operating with bad brakes or bald tires.
Early investigation is crucial. Trucks are repaired and put back into service. Driver logbooks are destroyed unless requested by a savvy attorney. The Law Office of Randolph C. Slone sends investigators and accident reconstructionists immediately to the scene to preserve evidence. We are familiar with the roads in Louisiana and Mississippi that are notorious for truck wrecks – I-12, I-10, I-59, I-55, and the Toll Causeway.
Truck accidents commonly maim victims in the other vehicle with catastrophic injuries or result in fatality. We pull together top experts to determine damages for ongoing medical care and lost earning potential, and we also pursue compensation for the lost quality of life or loss of companionship of a family member.
The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits in Louisiana is just one year, and there is much to be done. Contact a board-certified trial lawyer who can fight the insurance companies for your rightful compensation. Call us 24 hours a day at 985-643-0314 for a free case evaluation.
