Involved in an Truck Accident?

New Orleans Truck Accident Attorneys

EXPERIENCED 18-WHEELER ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS IN NEW ORLEANS

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident involving an 18-wheeler or commercial truck, The Burrell Firm, LLC can help. Large commercial trucks are incredibly dangerous, so it may come as no surprise that a large percentage of traffic injuries and deaths involve 18-wheelers and other large trucks. Because of their immense size and weight, accidents involving semi-trucks are more likely to result in serious injury and death than car crashes.

Our New Orleans 18-wheeler accident attorneys are experienced legal advocates with the know-how and tenacity to get you the compensation you need to cover your medical and other accident-related expenses.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,761 people were killed in crashes involving large trucks in 2017.

COMMON CAUSES OF TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Though there are state and federal regulations that govern trucking to maximize safety, the reality is less than ideal. Complex trucking machinery and equipment may malfunction, or drivers may push the limits of their hours of operation to make deliveries on time.

Therefore, accidents continue to happen, and they are oftentimes the result of a trucking company and/or a truck driver not following the law.

Many 18-wheeler accidents are caused by one or more of the following:

If you are involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, the trucking company that owns the vehicle and employed the driver can also be held liable. Therefore, the company’s insurance claims adjuster will immediately start building a case that will protect the interests of the trucking company. In doing so they will try to discredit your claim.
