Bogalusa Trucking Accidents

A truck accident can ruin lives in mere moments. 18-wheelers and semi-trucks can inflict massive damage to vehicles around them. While the driver of the truck is often protected from the worst of a crash, smaller vehicles are not. All too often, the occupants of the other car have very serious injuries.

Like most business, trucking companies are concerned about profits. Lawsuits and insurance payouts eat into those profits. They use their resources to downplay their liability or poor safety records. An experienced truck accident attorney can help you deal with their shady tactics.

Bogalusa has a great deal of truck traffic from the logging and extraction industries. This means more hours on the road with 18-wheelers and large trucks. And more risk of trucking accidents

Even with a “slam dunk” case, you have no guarantee insurance companies will offer fair compensation. Or sometimes, if the the initial offer they have made is even fair to begin with. They might fight or try to deny your claims.
