Helping Accident Victims Pursue Fair Compensation for Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Drivers of delivery vans and other commercial vehicles are often overworked, fatigued and concerned about getting to their destinations on time. All of these things are understandable, but none of them are any excuse for causing serious accidents through negligent driving.
At the law firm of Domengeaux Wright Roy & Edwards, L.L.C., our Louisiana commercial vehicle accident attorneys help accident victims and their families pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims against companies that employ negligent commercial drivers.
Pursuing Claims Against Negligent Drivers and Their Employers
When commercial drivers are overworked and rushed to make their rounds, dangerous behaviors like speeding, filling out forms, talking on the cell phone and texting while driving are very common. Often, their employers either encourage this behavior or look the other way.
Under Louisiana law, businesses that employ commercial drivers can often be held accountable for the consequences of their negligent and reckless driving.
If you have been seriously injured or have lost a loved one in a commercial vehicle accident, our attorneys have the experience and resources to fully investigate your claim, effectively negotiate with the insurance company, and take your case to trial before a jury if necessary.
In addition to handling claims involving smaller commercial vehicles such as delivery vans, our firm also frequently pursues 18-wheeler accident claims against trucking companies.
