In an accident between an 80,000-pound tractor-trailer and a passenger vehicle, the potential for serious injury is extremely high. Truck drivers have a responsibility to handle their vehicles in a manner that ensures the safety of every other motorist on the road. When they fail in that responsibility and accidents happen, the drivers, their employers and others can be held accountable for any injuries that occur as a result.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an 18-wheeler accident, a Houma lawyer can help you understand your rights and legal options. At the Law Offices of Brent J. Rhodes LLC, I represent Louisiana clients who have been injured in any kind of accident involving truck driver negligence or trucking equipment failure.
Helping You Through A Complex Process
Truck accident claims can be extremely difficult to resolve because of the multiple parties that can potentially share in the liability for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the driver, the driver's employer, the owner of the truck, the company responsible for loading the truck and others can all be held at least partially responsible for causing the accident.
When you hire me as your attorney, I will conduct a complete investigation into your accident. I will identify the negligent parties and consider the viability of pursuing claims against each of them. My only concern is to see that you receive the maximum compensation available in your case.
I represent victims in truck accident claims arising from any cause, including:
- Truck driver negligence, including impaired and reckless driving
- Truck driver fatigue
- Regulatory violations
- Negligent truck maintenance
- Overweight or improperly loaded trucks
- Truck equipment failure, including decoupling, brake failure and tire blowouts
