Baton Rouge Truck Accident Attorneys
Louisiana Truck Accident Lawyers
If you have been injured in a commercial truck accident, you should know that semi-truck accident cases are different from and far more complicated than car accident cases. Our Baton Rouge truck accident attorneys will protect your rights and fight for you, no matter where you live in the United States.
At Bohrer Brady, we understand that your primary concern is securing compensation for your injuries, lost wages and other losses. You should know that there are often multiple possible sources of compensation in a truck accident case, since more than one party may ultimately be responsible.
Commercial Truck Accidents
The trucking industry is governed by a complex set of rules and regulations. When a driver or trucking company fails to abide by these rules and regulations, you have a strong case for proving negligence on the part of the trucking company and their duty to compensate you.
Although trucks are a necessary part of delivering goods, they can cause horrific damage in an accident. Multiple cars and other property may be damaged.
If a loved one was killed, you can file a wrongful death action to ensure you are compensated for all aspects of your loss. Contact Bohrer Brady’s experienced truck accident attorneys. We are familiar with the causes, complications and possibilities of truck accidents, and we will fight for justice.
Overloaded Commercial Truck Accidents
When you pass a heavily loaded truck, do you feel nervous? When it goes around a corner, are you under tons of shifting cargo?
Shockingly, people are seriously injured every day by trucks losing control or rolling over due to improperly loaded cargo or oversized loads.
Many tons of cargo are behind the braking and steering systems of an 18-wheeler. An overloaded or improperly loaded truck places extra burden on these systems and on tires, which can blow out and cause a severe truck crash.
It is not unusual for shifting loads to affect the driver’s ability to steer or control his or her truck, and crashes can result. Loads can also cause accidents when they fall onto roadways. Often, the company that loaded the truck may be at fault, in addition to the trucking company and/or the driver.
The attorneys at Bohrer Brady LLC represent people who have been seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents, including commercial truck accidents.
We offer a no-cost, no-obligation consultation in which you can ask questions about the law, our firm and your options.
If we take your case, you can be assured of prompt responses, personal service and dedicated advocacy. Our firm has been representing victims for nearly 60 years, and our truck accident attorneys pursue any and all sources of compensation. Our goal is to maximize your financial recovery.
