Bogalusa Truck Accident Lawyers

Whether in a parking lot, on the highway, or in a rural area, when a collision happens, it instantly changes the life of a Bogalusa family.  This is even more devastating when the collision involves a large commercial vehicle such as a semi-truck, 18-wheeler, or tractor-truck, and an automobile.

A narrow left turn, a sideswipe when changing lanes or a rear-end when someone brakes too soon– and the passenger vehicle could be damaged or totaled.

There are many types of injuries ranging from minor cuts or whiplash to brain damage, loss of limb or life, and paralysis. Beyond the physical recovery, it can be stressful for the individual and the family emotionally, mentally, and financially.

Medical expenses from initial visits to long-term hospitalization can build, while the loss of wages makes it increasingly difficult to stay afloat financially.

Though no amount of compensation will diminish your or your family’s suffering, the Bart Bernard team of Bogalusa truck accident lawyers can help recover financial losses associated with the accident.

Determining liability

While more severe injuries and increased medical costs are significant factors in terms of the amount of potential compensation, our seasoned legal experts are dedicated to helping families fight for justice.

Aggressive insurance companies will seek to protect their large policy amounts and look for evidence to determine that liability lies outside of the driver or trucking company.  

However, there are many potential causes and liable parties. From the route planner to the logistical company, the maintenance company, and even local municipalities or government agencies, all of the above could be responsible. Causes could include:

  • Improperly loaded materials
  • Driver fatigue, distraction or impairment
  • Road hazards or errors
  • Vehicle defects or improper maintenance
  • Speeding or aggressive driving

Let a Bogalusa truck accident lawyer investigate the possibilities, and work to build a strong case for you that holds the responsible party accountable.

In the state of Louisiana, a lawsuit must be filed within one year from the date of the collision, whether for personal injury or vehicular damages. For families who have lost a loved one, a lawsuit or claim can be filed against the driver or person responsible within one year.
