Truck Accident Injury Claims in Baton Rouge
Baton Rouge Truck Accident Attorney
Commercial vehicles such as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are powerful machines, and thus, the need for responsible driving by professionals is critical to maintaining the safety of Baton Rouge's busy roadways. Unfortunately, many commercial drivers fail to drive responsibly and do not consider other vehicles on the road. Commercial drivers, even by simple negligence, who are the cause of an accident, can be held responsible for damages to all vehicles involved as well as all costs associated with the recovery for any personal injury.
Legal Protection from a Baton Rouge Injury Lawyer
In many cases, commercial vehicles are insured by a business or organization, and are covered adequately for cases of driver error, which result in accident with injury. In some cases, however, insurance companies may attempt to limit the victim's rights by using scare tactics or applying pressure to coerce them into accepting a settlement quickly after the accident. The commercial insurance companies have their own accident investigators that are dispatched at once to the scene. As profit-driven corporations, they hope to reduce the cost of settlements. A Baton Rouge injury lawyer from The Layfield Law Firm, LLC knows how irresponsibly insurance companies can act when seeking to minimize their own financial loss, and is committed to protecting your right to fair compensation.
Truck accident injuries are often very severe due to the power and size of the vehicle, and collisions can result in broken bones, lost limbs, paralysis, long-term disability, head and brain injuries, and death. The costs associated with recovery, or long-term care in cases of permanent disability, can be significant and pose a real financial threat to truck accident victims. Drivers who cause truck accidents in commercial vehicles should be held responsible for the damages they cause. The Layfield Law Firm, LLC will aggressively pursue the compensation deserved after a truck accident.
