18-Wheelers accidents are not just big car wrecks, it’s different. Get an experienced attorney – (504) 533-0006
A high percentage of traffic crashes and deaths involve large trucks. A large truck is any truck whose vehicle weight is over 10,000 pounds. Because of their size, accidents involving semi-trucks are more likely to result in serious injury and death than car crashes. In fact, approximately 10% of all those injured in a semi-truck accident will die. There are state and federal regulations that govern trucking and cover areas such as safety of equipment and hours of operation. However, even though these truck regulations are put in place, accidents do happen and often times it is the result of a truck company and/or driver not following the law.
If you or someone you love has suffered injuries or has been killed as result of the negligence of a truck driver, The Burrell Firm LLC can help. We represent our clients under a contingency fee basis, also known as a no-win, no-fee promise, which means there are no fees or costs whatsoever until we win or settle your case. If you do not obtain a recovery or settlement, you do not owe us anything.
