Our law firm extends our hearts and prayers to the victims and their families in this tragic accident. Normally, accidents of this nature are caused by negligence or intoxication.

Potential Benefits to Hiring a Shreveport Truck Accident Injury Lawyer 

There are lots of reasons (and benefits) to working with an attorney when it comes to your injury claim. Some have to do with money and financial compensation, others have to do with having peace of mind and the ability to focus on your recovery. In our opinion, insurance companies have their own lawyers representing them. Those attorneys are personal injury lawyers, just like us. However, unlike us, they do NOT have YOUR best interests in mind. That’s because they are paid to protect the insurance company.

Understanding the Complexities that Commercial Truck Accident Injury Claims Can Present 

When you’re sick, you go to the doctor. If your tooth hurts, you contact your dentist. Clogged drain or a busted sink? No problem, you know a local trusted plumber. So, if you or a loved one are injured in an accident, doesn’t it make sense to let an injury attorney manage your claim? Normal accident injury claims cause problems sometimes. Just imagine the drama and headaches that a commercial truck accident injury claim can present.

Due you so the truck driver, the trucking company, or the insurance company? Can  you sue all of them? Sometimes truck drivers are employees of a trucking company, other times they are 1099 private contractors. The point is that these types of accident injury claims are complicated.

Our Shreveport big rig injury lawyers know how to handle these types of claims.
