St. Martinville Truck Accident Lawyers

Since 1997, attorney Bart Bernard has been a vigorous advocate for truck accident victims in St. Martinville. While large commercial vehicles are a necessary fixture on our roadways, they also represent a serious safety hazard for other motorists. These trucks outweigh passenger vehicles by a factor of 20 in some cases. With a weight disparity that large, the injuries to the occupants of a passenger vehicle can be catastrophic.

To protect the legal rights of truck accident victims, the Bart Bernard team of St. Martinville personal injury lawyers would work tirelessly to pursue justice and compensation on their behalf. If you are ready to pursue the compensation you deserve, contact our truck accident lawyers today.

Common defendants in truck accident lawsuits

Following a commercial truck crash, it is easy to cast blame on the truck operator. While most truck crashes are a result of negligence on behalf of the driver, several parties could potentially face liability for a crash. Every collision is different, but the most common defendants include:

  • Truck Operators. There are countless ways a truck driver’s negligence could cause a crash, including speed, failing to yield, or driving while intoxicated.
  • Truck Owners. If a negligent truck driver was on the clock at the time of a crash, the truck owner could also be on the hook for any damages.
  • Municipal Government. When the condition of a roadway causes a truck crash, you could seek compensation for the city, state, or county government responsible for that stretch of road.
  • Truck Manufacturers. In some cases, a defective truck or one of its parts will lead to a crash. When that occurs, you have the right to seek compensation from the manufacturer.
