Assisting Clients In Seeking Compensation For Serious Commercial Vehicle Accident Injuries
The major roadways of southwest Louisiana are clogged with traffic, including all types of work trucks. Those commercial drivers are not always considerate or careful drivers. They are not always alert after many hours on the job. Many have no business driving a large truck.
When trucks and commercial vehicles collide with passenger vehicles, there is the potential for serious or permanent injuries. The Townsley Law Firm is committed to holding truck drivers and owners accountable. Our Lake Charles personal injury attorneys handle truck accidents in Calcasieu Parish, Jefferson Davis Parish and the surrounding area.
Handling All Types Of Trucking Accidents In Louisiana
We have handled cases of severe injury and wrongful death in commercial vehicle accidents. Our attorneys personally visit the crash site themselves to gather evidence and understand what happened. We often use professional investigators and accident reconstruction specialists to determine the cause of the accident and to counter the truck driver’s version of events.
We have handled every kind of work truck accident, including:
- Oil refinery trucks
- Freight hauling trucks
- Package delivery trucks (FedEx, UPS)
- Courier service vans
- Construction vehicles
- Garbage trucks
- Utility company trucks
- Limos and corporate vehicles
What Causes Commercial Transport Accidents?
We explore contributing factors such as driver fatigue, driver error and traffic violations; maintenance issues (brakes, tires, etc.); improperly loaded or overweight freight; negligent hiring; and roadway defects. We obtain logbooks and dispatch records, repair and maintenance records, black box data from the truck, and the driver’s qualifications (CDL license) and driving history.
We regularly handle 18-wheeler accidents and other truck accidents on I-10, on I-210 and on Highway 90. We also handle truck wrecks on feeder highways and local roads as drivers are heading to work sites and making deliveries. When the injuries are severe, we work with many professionals to ensure clients are compensated fairly for medical bills, future medical care, lost earnings, permanent disability, and pain and suffering.
