Louisiana 18 Wheeler Truck Accident Attorney

Get the Results you Deserve!

Experienced Louisiana 18 Wheeler Truck Accident Injury Attorneys you can Trust!

Handling accidents that involve 18-wheeler trucks can be a complicated process, riddled with conflicting laws at the state and federal level that regulate the trucking industry. But with GCJ Law Firm in your corner, you can rest easy knowing you’ll get quality representation and the support you need.

Regulations and Compliance

Regulations and compliance adherence is often a major issue when dealing with 18-wheeler accident cases. Employers and drivers need to comply with regulations that (among other things) limit the amount of time that they can drive until they need to take a break — and how long that break needs to be.

There are also laws that cover specific details regarding the type of cargo they’re carrying, as well as how it’s loaded onto the truck in the first place.

Insurance Companies

There are generally two insurance companies that you’ll have to deal with. The first one insures the cab portion of the truck, whereas the second insurance company insures the trailer. If you’re in search of an attorney to represent you in a truck accident insurance claim in the great state of Louisiana, don’t hesitate to call the GCJ law firm.

When it comes to these types of cases, you need a team of experienced lawyers who are skilled in this area of law and familiar with local jurisdiction and process. Our team at GCJ law firm has the know-how and persistence that it takes to settle your claims quickly and help you get the compensation you deserve.

Louisiana 18 Wheeler Truck Injury

Accidents that involve an 18-wheeler truck can cause terrifying damage due to the sheer size and weight of each rig and load. The individuals who drive these behemoth trucks are required to carry a commercial driver’s license, and fall under the regulation of both federal and state mandated laws and regulations around the operation of such vehicles.

Because of their tremendous weight and size, the operation of 18-wheeler trucks is generally held to higher standards than that of smaller automobiles.

The skills of the driver and maintenance of the trucks, including the procedures for loading the trailers, are tightly managed. Each year the number of 18-wheeler trucks on the road rises, and with it, the number of fatalities.
