The short answer is yes. If you have been involved or injured in a commercial truck accident you should certainly hire a Louisiana personal injury attorney as soon as possible, even if you feel certain the insurance companies will handle the case for you.
Because you or your loved ones are much more likely to suffer more severe, catastrophic, or even fatal injuries in a commercial truck accident, your Louisiana truck accident claim must incorporate these factors. Additionally, it is also likely more than just a truck driver may be liable for your injuries and medical bills. A lawyer can help you determine who is liable, gather the necessary evidence, and build a solid case around your claim.
Commercial trucks are required to maintain insurance at specific amounts given the catastrophic injuries and damage a truck accident can easily cause. These laws ensure motorist victims of commercial truck accidents will have the legal recourse to recover adequate compensation for their injuries. If you are not intimately familiar with these laws, you should hire a Louisiana personal injury attorney who will understand how they apply to your case.
If you are injured in a Louisiana truck accident, you must establish particular elements of your truck accident claim in order to recover compensation for the damages you have suffered. If your injuries are serious or permanent, your claims will likely seek damages for medical bills, lost wages from work, long-term medical treatment, and pain and suffering.
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.
