After A Truck Accident, We Will Advocate For You

Last updated on June 2, 2020

Shreveport, Louisiana, is the meeting point of many state, regional and national trucking routes. With semi trucks 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 semi truck, you have rights and may be entitled to personal injury or wrongful death compensation. Carl Henry Franklin, Attorney at Law, understands that compensation can help you recover as much as possible after a serious accident. We can help you build your claim for justice.

Accidents Happen, But Negligence Is No Excuse

A few common causes of semi truck 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 another mobile device)

The companies that truck drivers work for are usually protected by large insurance companies. If you were injured in an accident involving a semi truck, it may be intimidating to take on the insurance company on your own.

At our firm, we know how to create a strategy to counter the advantages that large companies may have due to their financial resources. We have years of experience taking on insurers, investigating accidents, gathering evidence and building a strong claim for just compensation.

At the law office of Carl Henry Franklin, Attorney at Law, we help victims hold these companies responsible after an accident. Whether you were run off the road, sideswiped or involved in a head-on collision, we can help you pursue a claim to ease your recovery.
