New Orleans Truck Accident Attorney

Our New Orleans Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help

18-wheelers are huge, heavy, and hard-to-control vehicles whether the driver is maneuvering the truck within a lane, making a turn, or trying to stop. Commercial truck drivers are often paid by the mile or by the stop, which means that they have a greater incentive to drive as quickly as they can and for more hours than are legally permitted by law. When a truck driver hits another car or pedestrian, it often leads to catastrophic injuries, property damage, or even death.

If you are in an accident with an 18-wheeler, make sure to do the following:

  • Call the police right away and get a police report. The police officer will do an independent investigation and provide a record of what happened before stories change.
  • Take pictures of any broken glass or damage to your vehicle before the vehicles involved are moved from the roadway.
  • Get the other driver’s information including a picture of his or her license, insurance card and employer’s information.
  • Gather any information from witnesses. A witness’s statement can be the difference between winning and losing your case.
  • Call the Cossé Law Firm to get the help of our truck accident lawyer.

Trucking companies and the insurance adjusters that work for them often get to the scene right away to take pictures and try to put the blame on you. If you or someone you know has been hit by an 18-wheeler on one of New Orleans' busy roads, it is important that you have competent legal representation as soon as possible.
