Your legal rights as a truck accident victim
Opelousas residents have a legal right to pursue compensation for injuries sustained in a truck accident through little or no fault of their own. Seeking fair compensation and justice doesn’t make you greedy or vengeful– it just means that you’re taking care of yourself.
If you’re not sure you have a potential case, you need to meet with a lawyer. Our Opelousas personal injury lawyers offer free initial consultations, so you have nothing to lose by meeting with us.
When is the best time to call a lawyer?
Every moment you wait to call a lawyer after getting in a truck accident is a moment lost. Truck accident cases can be quite complex and therefore need thorough investigation. The longer you wait to call a lawyer the tougher it will be.
It’s also important to call as soon as possible because of evidence spoliation– evidence can be lost, altered, or otherwise destroyed and effectively removed from the case. Spoliation is common in truck accident cases, which is another reason to call immediately.
You should also contact a lawyer as soon as possible because Louisiana state law requires that victims must file a claim in one year.
