Mandeville Truck Accident Lawyer
The impact a tractor-trailer collision can have on your life is undeniable. When you’ve suffered a serious injury, consult with an experienced Mandeville truck accident attorney who can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
Those who survive accidents with a big rig are known to endure catastrophic injuries. The massive size of the truck is no match for nearly every type of motor vehicle there is out there. When you’ve been harmed in a wreck with a semi-truck, you can hold whoever is responsible for causing the accident accountable for their negligent actions when you file a trucking accident claim against them in Louisiana courts.
Filing a civil lawsuit can be daunting, especially when you are still in the throes of your recovery. When you work with a Mandeville truck accident lawyer at the Law Office of Braud & Gallagher, our team of highly trained professionals will work diligently to build a powerful case in your favor so that you can begin to rebuild your life after your trucking wreck.
Who’s to Blame for Your Injuries?
The majority of big rig collisions are caused by irresponsible truck drivers. Perhaps they were distracted by their cell phone, too tired to be on the road, driving aggressively, or operating the tractor-trailer while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In any case, the trucker may not have been the only party that contributed to the cause of your accident.
Nearly anyone involved in the operation, manufacturing, and safety of the 18-wheeler could have played a part in the cause of your injuries. This might include the truck owner, the company that employs the truck driver, the safety inspector, cargo loaders, and vehicle parts manufacturers, to name a few.
In fact, one of these parties may have been solely responsible for your wreck involving a semi-truck, and the trucker may be completely blameless. There are many variables at play. Whatever the case, though, you can be sure that your attorney’s investigation will identify any and all parties that are even remotely liable for your damages.
Damages That Should Be Considered in Your Claim
It’s important that we include every single loss when we are calculating the value of your Mandeville personal injury claim so that you can maximize the amount of your final award.
The most commonly sought damages in a trucking wreck claim include lost wages, property damages, medical expenses, damage to your earning potential, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship and love, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and the effects of scarring or disfigurement.
There is also a chance that the judge will impose an award of punitive damages, which are meant to punish the wrongdoer for abhorrent or willfully harmful actions.
Though it’s difficult to say just how much your claim is worth without going into further detail about the circumstances of your case, it stands to reason that the more influential the damages you’ve endured are on your life, the greater you can expect your final award to be.
