Do You Have a Truck Accident Case?

Truck accidents are seldom classified as minor fender benders. If you were hit by a big truck, you likely have grounds to file a truck accident lawsuit. However, if you are still wondering if your situation calls for an experienced truck accident attorney to step in, here are some of the circumstances we will review in order to determine if your case is worth pursuing.

You may have a case if:

  • Another party, including the truck driver, caused your accident and your injuries.
  • You suffered serious injuries in the truck accident, such as broken bones, traumatic brain injury/concussion, or back and neck injuries.
  • You are within the statute of limitations. This is the time limit the state puts on an injured person’s legal ability to file a truck accident lawsuit.

We can help you determine if you have a case, if you are within the statute of limitations, and how much you might be able to receive in compensation in a free case review. Let us go to bat for you. Contact us today to get started.

How Can a Truck Accident Lawyer Help?

At this point, you may be wondering if you can handle your truck accident case on your own, or if it’s worth it to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer like the ones at Gauthier Amedee. Having one of our lawyers on your side can offer several advantages to your situation. We can:

  • Investigate the truck accident and determine who was at fault for your accident. With truck accidents, the truck driver is not always the guilty party. There can be a number of parties responsible for your injuries and consequent compensation. Having one of our lawyers help you determine who was at fault for your accident can ensure you are able to seek the maximum settlement amount possible.
  • Seek compensation you may not even have known you deserved. Insurance companies will do anything they can to keep from paying for your losses. If you try to seek what you’re owed on your own, you will likely miss out on crucial funds the insurance company hides from you or denies you.
  • Compile evidence and documents relating to your claim to put together a strong case on your behalf so you can focus on recovering.
  • Handle any calls and negotiations with the insurance company. Insurance adjusters can sometimes revert to bullying to get claimholders to back down from the compensation they deserve. We won’t let them take advantage of you. We’ll go to bat for your rights and the settlement you’re entitled to.

What Comes Next?

Ready to let us go to bat for you? Here’s what you can expect to happen after you call us.

You can either come to our office or stay in the comfort of your own home for your free case review. We’ll go over the details of your case in an online video call or in person. The choice is yours.

Your attorney will go through the evidence and witness statements related to your claim and put together the strongest case possible for maximum compensation.

Your attorney will handle negotiations with the insurance company on your behalf, fighting for every penny you deserve.

In some situations, a case needs to go to court, especially if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement amount. This rarely happens, but if your case needs to be heard in court, our team will go to bat for your rights and the full compensation amount you deserve.

Once the insurance company offers a fair settlement you can accept, we will reach out to you with your settlement check as soon as it reaches our office.

Baton Rouge Truck Accident Frequently Asked Questions

There are many factors that can result in semi-trucks causing serious traffic accidents. Here are some of the most common:

  • Truck Driver Error. Driver error can include serious offenses such as distracted driving, or driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, many truck drivers are also faced with extreme and unrealistic deadlines for their shipments, which can cause drivers to stay up for hours and even days on end to make up time. As a result, driver fatigue or falling asleep at the wheel is another major factor that results in tractor-trailer accidents.
  • Improper Loading. Semi-trucks regularly carry as much as 80,000 lbs of weight when out on the road. If the cargo is not properly secured, or if the weight is not evenly distributed, the results can be devastating. It is the responsibility of a truck driver and their company to ensure that all trucks are safe to drive.
  • Equipment Failure. If a driver or trucking company fails to perform regularly scheduled maintenance and safety checks on all of their equipment, it puts other drivers at serious risk.

At Gauthier Amedee, you never have to pay any attorney’s fee upfront. In fact, we only get paid after you do. If there is no recovery, there is no attorney’s fee. It’s that simple. We’re here to go to bat for you and to make sure that your rights are fully protected.

In Louisiana, you have one year from the date of your accident to file a truck accident lawsuit.

Your case and your injuries are serious. At Gauthier Amedee, we will aggressively pursue your case to ensure you seek the maximum compensation amount possible for your truck accident injury. We’ll take care of everything while you focus on recovering.

If someone else caused your semi-truck accident and you suffered serious injuries, you likely have a truck accident case. Contact our experienced Baton Rouge truck accident lawyers to learn about your right to compensation and how we can go to bat for what you deserve.
