Quality Semitruck Accident Representation From Experienced Counselors
Because of the dangers large trucks pose to other motorists, truck drivers must obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and abide by strict requirements at all times. Our experienced Lake Charles big-rig accident lawyers know how to investigate whether any rules were violated or if the driver was otherwise negligent while behind the wheel. Common causes of tractor-trailer accidents include:
- Drowsy driving or hours violations (truckers are only allowed to drive a certain number of consecutive hours without a break)
- Drunk driving
- Inattentive or distracted driving, including texting while driving
- Unsafe driving due to weather conditions
- Drug use
- Poorly maintained vehicles
Our attorneys also realize that trucking companies and their insurance carriers often approach injury victims with settlement offers quickly after an accident. These offers almost always undervalue the true amount of a victim’s claim and prevent any future litigation. Do not accept any offer without consulting with our office first. We know how to handle insurance companies, and we know how to get the maximum amount of compensation for our clients that they are entitled to under the law, especially if a wrongful death is involved.
