Bayou Blue is a small, safe town where residents look out for each other. Unfortunately, accidents on the road happen everywhere, and this friendly little place is no exception. If a commercial delivery truck, semi, or 18-wheeler is involved in the crash, the results can be devastating. To ensure that commercial trucks operate safely, Louisiana and the federal government have put in place strict safety rules that drivers and owners must follow.
If you’ve been hurt in an accident that was caused by a trucker or company that breaks those rules, you may be able to seek a generous compensation package. Bart Bernard and his team of Bayou Blue personal injury lawyers are standing by, 24 hours a day, to help your cause. You’re Smart. Get Bart.™
What should I do immediately after my accident?
This depends on the state of your injuries. If you need to go to the emergency room, that is your priority. Otherwise, it’s smart to take pictures of the scene and take down the contact info of any eyewitnesses. If you must make a statement to the police, keep it short and simple, and try not to admit liability. Your next step should be to contact a truck accident lawyer. If you are approached by an insurance company that isn’t your own, you should refuse to speak with them. Chances are, they’re trying to get you to admit guilt, or accept a small settlement in hopes you’ll waive your right to further legal action and compensation.
Consultations are always free and confidential
Meeting with the team of Bayou Blue personal injury lawyers doesn’t cost a thing. We offer no-fee consultations to anyone who has been hurt in a collision with a commercial truck. Even if you think the accident was partially your fault– poorly maintained brakes, an overworked or distracted driver, and even old tires– could have contributed to the crash. Your attorney will examine all the details of your accident and help you decide what your next course of action should be. In addition to being totally free, consultations are also 100% confidential, and you’re under no obligation to work with us, regardless of the outcome.
Win compensation and get your life back on track
If you have a strong case, we can help you seek the funds you need to cover medical care, make up for missed paychecks, repair or replace your car, and secure a bright financial future. We’re aware that it can be prohibitively expensive to hire a lawyer, so we work on a contingency basis. This means that we don’t see a dime unless we win damages from a jury or agree to a fair settlement. Choose a lawyer who will fight tirelessly to win you maximum compensation.
