WINN PARISH TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Most people are aware that many truck accidents take place every year in the United States, which causes injury to thousands of people, in addition to causing many deaths. A trucking accident occurs when large trailers (10,000+ lbs.) collide with other vehicles or pedestrians. Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision.
If you are the victim of a trucking accident, the questions 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.
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. We can provide a FREE initial consultation and work with you on whether to pursue an action in court. You will work with an accident attorney who has extensive experience handling car and truck accidents.
The most common causes of truck accidents are driver error prior to and during the trip, mechanical failures, weather conditions, road design, and traffic signal failures. 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.
