Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.
If you spend time on the road, you know to watch out for commercial trucks. Most truck drivers are well trained and very responsible, but the fact remains that a truck accident is likely to wreck your car and cause serious injuries. This is why the truck drivers must follow many rules in order to avoid personal or truck company liability in the event of a truck accident.
A Louisiana truck accident can be one of the most devastating kinds of traffic accidents. Being in a truck accident means that you’ll likely have to pay steep fees for medical bills and other related expenses. There’s also a good chance that you’ll be dealing with lasting injuries, both physical and emotional.
This is why truck drivers have so many rules and regulations. If a truck driver hurt you while failing to observe protocol, you may have grounds for a Louisiana personal injury lawsuit.

It’s personally satisfying to use what I’ve learned as an insurance company insider, now for the good — helping families reverse unfair denials of insurance benefits they paid for, need and deserve.
Price McNamara began his law practice in 1990 representing insurance companies.
In 1995, Mr. McNamara founded McNamara Law Offices, where he represents people across the U.S. who are wrongfully denied long-term disability insurance, life insurance, and accidental death insurance benefits, with special focus on ERISA claims and lawsuits.
His is a member of the Louisiana and Texas Bars, with office locations by appointment only in Baton Rouge, Metairie, and Houston. He lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with his wife and their three children.
“Price showed no fear. The only thing I can use to actively describe what I saw that day in court was someone standing there protecting our family and fighting for them at the same time…he took control of the situation and was truthful.”
“It was a smooth process. I didn’t have to guess about what was going to happen next…I was reassured that he was going to do the right thing. I was reassured that he was looking out for me.”
“He was ready to fight for me…I felt like he had my best interest in mind. It wasn’t just for the paycheck at the end.”
“Price worked for an insurance company in the past and now he’s working against the insurance company so it was because of that we trusted that he knew how an insurance company worked and how to fight them.”
“I feel blessed that I can help turn things around for my clients who have been denied that piece of mind of financial stability and we make sure that the insurance company and the court realize that these are actual people, these are families that are suffering greatly.”

My client’s cause for an ERISA accidental death and dismemberment denial lawsuit began when both Esther and her husband were involved in a tragic head-on collision with an 18-wheeler. This tragic accident resulted in severe injuries to Esther, as well as David’s untimely death.
Our client, a young husband with two children, sustained closed-head brain injury as a result of an automobile accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially refused to pay, but shortly before trial, agreed to pay the entirety of its insurance policy limits of $2,000,000.
Our client was a floor hand and Jones Act seaman who suffered a shoulder injury while working for Blake Offshore, LLC. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans. Blake and its insurance company offered relatively little in settlement, so the case proceeded to trial.
Our client sustained a fractured hip and reduced ability to earn wages in the future as a result of an accident sustained on the offshore drilling rig to which he was assigned. Suit was filed in federal court in New Orleans.
Federal truck-driving laws state that the driver of a commercial truck cannot be in any way impaired while behind the wheel. If he or she drove while ill, fatigued or intoxicated at the time of the truck accident, the driver would have been breaking the law. If the driver’s employer forced him or her to work while ill, the company would also shoulder some of the liability for your truck accident.
Likewise, the vehicle itself must follow federal safety regulations. Lights and reflectors need to be visible, and the cargo must be properly secured. Additionally, the truck driver needs to take precautions to avoid igniting fuel. Truck drivers are also required to follow all local traffic laws in addition to the specific regulations governing large trucks. If they fail to do so, the results can be even more damaging.
Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

All these truck-driving rules are important because they can affect the outcome of your Louisiana personal injury lawsuit. These lawsuits are based on negligence laws, and if your lawyer can prove that the truck driver violated any of these rules, it would greatly strengthen your accident case.
In fact, the blame might not end with the truck driver. Sometimes, unscrupulous employers order their drivers to do unsafe things, like driving while ill or driving extra hours to make a timely shipment. This is an example of truck company liability, and can greatly expand the scope of your Louisiana personal injury lawsuit.
Remember that it is unfair for you to have to pay so much money for somebody else’s error. Filing a Louisiana personal injury lawsuit can remedy this, helping you get back on your feet, and showing that dangerous negligence will not be tolerated.
After a serious truck accident, while you are dealing with injuries, medical bills, car repairs and insurance companies, it’s important to have someone working on your side.
Speaking with an experienced Louisiana personal injury attorney after a truck accident can help you understand your legal rights and options, and if necessary, help you file a personal injury lawsuit to help you recover compensation for your losses.
