Morgan City La Trucking Accident Attorney
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, there are a number of parties, including the truck driver and their employer, who may be liable for your losses; however, it is not uncommon for these parties to deny fault or liability for a crash. The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess will help you determine whether you have a valid claim and how your case will be presented. Our experienced trucking attorneys can help establish liability for your crash, collect evidence to strengthen your claim and help ensure compensation is sought from the appropriate parties.
Following a crash, the trucking company and their insurance company will start an immediate investigation of the scene. These companies have specific and detailed procedures on handling truck accident claims designed to limit the recovery of those injured in the crash. They may record statements from witnesses, take photos of the accident scene, and examine the vehicles to determine the extent of damage caused by the crash.

Clayton Burgess respond by aggressively seeking restitution for victims who have been seriously damaged by the company’s’ negligence and disregard for safety.
