CATAHOULA PARISH TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, there are a number of parties, including the truck driver and their employer, who may be liable for your losses; however, it is not uncommon for these parties to deny fault or liability for a crash. An attorney can help establish liability for your crash, collect evidence to strengthen your claim and help ensure compensation is sought from the appropriate parties.

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, Catahoula Parish trucking accident attorney can provide you with an initial consultation FREE of charge to you regardless of whether you retain our services.

Our trucking accident attorneys can work with you to understand the common reasons for trucking accidents, and the relationships among the persons and entities connected to the truck, the trailer, and the load.

Following a crash, the trucking company and their insurance company will start an immediate investigation of the scene. These companies have specific and detailed procedures on handling truck accident claims designed to limit the recovery of those injured in the crash. They may record statements from witnesses, take photos of the accident scene, and examine the vehicles to determine the extent of damage caused by the crash. Our attorneys can:

 

  • Review camera footage, if available
  • Interview witnesses
  • Review mandatory police and accident reports
  • Analyze and review medical records
  • Interview medical staff
  • Consult experts to reconstruct the accident scene and recreate the accident

 

Federal laws and regulations govern the trucking industry. These laws establish certain standards that trucking companies, owners, and drivers must meet, and often determine who is responsible for a trucking accident.

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.

Those injured in trucking accidents may be entitled to recover compensation for damages suffered as a result of the accident, including, but not limited to, 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.
