Louisiana Truck Accident Lawyer

Shreveport, Louisiana, is the meeting point of many state, regional and national trucking routes. With semitrucks sharing the roadways with thousands of other motor vehicles such as cars and motorcycles, accidents involving 18-wheelers are a common occurrence resulting in severe injuries and even death. If you suffered an injury, or lost a loved one in a wreck with a semitruck, you have rights and may be entitled to personal injury or wrongful death compensation.

Accidents Happen, But Negligence Is No Excuse

Truck drivers and the companies they work for are usually protected by large insurance companies. If you were injured in an accident involving a semitruck, it may be intimidating to take on the insurance company on your own. At our firm, we have years of experience taking on insurers, investigating accidents, gathering evidence and building a strong claim for just compensation.

A few common causes of semitruck and commercial vehicle accidents include:

  • Impaired or intoxicated driver (DUI/DWI, drugs)
  • Fatigue from driving beyond the allotted amount of time or miles
  • Unsecured, unbalanced or overburdened load
  • Faulty parts and maintenance
  • Reckless driving
  • Negligence or distracted driving (texting on a cellular phone or other mobile device)
