New Orleans Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck accidents are different from car accidents for two reasons: the injuries tend to be more severe and trucks are covered by commercial insurance policies. Recovering compensation from these insurance companies is difficult. Trucking companies and their insurance carriers send an accident response team of adjusters, investigators and lawyers to the scene within hours of the accident.

The lawyers at Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, will fight the trucking company’s insurance carrier for the compensation you need after an accident. We have the experience to negotiate a settlement or take the insurance company to court when that is in your best interests. You can rely on us to stand up for your rights.

The Dangers Of Large Trucks

Many types of commercial vehicles can cause serious accidents, including semis, cargo trucks or trailers on flat cars, tankers, garbage trucks, construction vehicles and delivery trucks. We also take cases involving trucks or other vehicles towing boats.

Truck accidents are often caused by issues such as:

  • Driver fatigue and/or hours violations
  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe vehicles
  • Defective brakes, tires or other parts of the vehicle

Accidents like these are typically caused by the negligence of the driver and/or the trucking company. Manufacturers of defective truck parts may also be liable. We will work hard to hold all liable parties accountable for their role in your accident.

In addition to brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns and amputations, trucking accidents often result in wrongful death. We seek compensation for all of your losses, including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and funeral costs, when applicable.
