DENHAM SPRINGS LA: TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
DENHAM SPRINGS LA TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
People who are hurt in a truck accident in Louisiana can and should demand accountability from the trucking company if the company and/or its driver is at fault for the collision. This is typically done by hiring an attorney who will build a case and file a lawsuit against the company. Many cases never go to court because a settlement is reached between your attorney and the trucking company. The Law Offices of L.Clayton Burgess will help you determine whether you have a valid claim and how your case will be presented. If our lawyers do not collect money damages for you, you don’t owe an attorney fee. We don’t get paid unless we successfully recover compensation for you and your family.
Truck drivers, through driving logs and other records, are held to a higher standard than drivers of passenger vehicles, and trucking companies are required to follow strict procedures involving hiring practices, truck maintenance, recording keeping, and time on the job. Our experienced trucking accident attorneys know how to find, collect, interpret, and present the evidence that you must have to prove your case and recover the monetary outcome you deserve.
