New Orleans Lawyer For Truck Accident Victims

Truck drivers and trucking companies are held to a high standard of safety for good reason. A collision with an 18-wheeler or other large commercial vehicle can have devastating consequences — often far more devastating than crashes that involve only passenger vehicles.

At The Law Office of John J. Finckbeiner, we help truck accident victims obtain full and fair compensation for injuries and other costs. If you or a loved one was injured in a truck accident on Interstate 10 or another highway in the New Orleans area, contact our personal injury law office for a free initial consultation. We can help.

Truck Accident Investigations

From a legal standpoint, tractor-trailer accidents are particularly complex because the trucking industry is subject to a multitude of federal regulations — and because multiple parties may be liable for a single truck accident.

Potentially liable parties in a truck accident include the truck driver, the trucking company, the individual or company that loaded the truck, the party responsible for maintaining the truck, the truck or truck part manufacturer and any insurance companies for these parties.

All potentially liable parties should be promptly notified after an 18-wheeler accident, but often truck accident victims are rightly more concerned about their injuries than about the legal steps required to obtain the maximum in compensation.

Our law firm handles every aspect of the legal process and the truck accident investigation, which may involve accident reconstruction, photography experts, truck and truck part experts, gathering of witness statements and investigation of the truck driver's hours of service.

We do this work while you focus on healing.

To prevent truck driver fatigue, the amount of time a truck driver can be behind the wheel is limited. Our Chalmette trucking accident attorney can determine whether a truck driver committed an hours-of-service violation that led to an accident.

Helping You Get The Compensation You Deserve

If you were seriously injured because of trucking negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for a variety of costs, including medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, emotional distress, rehabilitation and pain and suffering.
