How an Experienced Big Truck Accident Attorney Can Help

When you choose Edward B. Jones & Associates, LLC, we have an experienced team of lawyers dedicated to completing thorough the investigation into the truck crash, as well as proving driver negligence, displaying their careless actions which led to the collision.

  • Review Reports of Police and Accident
  • Interview of all witnesses
  • Investigate Scene of the Accident
  • Check the driver’s credentials
  • Determine whether all local traffic laws have been obeyed

Having an attorney proving negligence on the part of truck drivers is very important when filing a lawsuit for personal injury in Louisiana. There are in-depth state and federal regulations regarding trucking that will be difficult to interpret without legal assistance. Our truck accident injury lawyers have extensive knowledge of these laws as well as litigation experience, and the resources to investigate the accident thoroughly. Big trucking companies are required to follow strict Driving Hours and Truck Maintenance procedures and drivers are held to a higher standard than a regular driver of vehicles.

Trucking companies often falsify their records to protect their business and their drivers. Our truck accident attorneys in Louisiana are trained in finding inconsistencies and falsifications in the trucking records that will prove the accident was the driver or company responsible. Proving responsibility in a big truck accident can be more difficult than in a normal accident involving a motor vehicle. There are sometimes several parties involved in a truck accident, such as:

  • The Trucking Company
  • The Truck Driver 
  • The Parts Manufacturer
  • A Third Party

Our attorney will be trained to identify the parties that may have contributed to the accident, and then they will build an aggressive case against the default party. You should not try to handle a lawsuit alone regarding a truck accident. You’ll be in great hands with the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, and can expect your lawyer to get the compensation you deserve.
