New Orleans Truck Accident Attorney
Awarding Damages in a Truck Accident Case
Louisiana law can make it tough to get the compensation you deserve in
a truck accident. The Tonry Law Firm is dedicated to being proactive in
personal injury cases and taking the fight, to the insurance company or to court. When
you retain a committed
New Orleans personal injury lawyer from the firm, you will be represented by the attorney you hired, not
an associate or a person you have never talked with. Your attorney will
also be someone who has been chosen as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer for 3 years
running and is AAVO rated for excellent legal service.
The laws in our state make it so that the damages you can recover, along
with the medical expenses that are paid, will be determined by how much
fault each person had in the accident. Despite your certain knowledge
that you were not to blame for the incident, a lawyer for the insurance
company or a third party may attempt to show that you were, at least,
partially responsible. This can result in your medical expenses not being
100% paid for and the amount of any damages being reduced. This is where
the firm's aggressive stance and experience can pay off.
How Compensation is Determined
When our Chalmette injury firm is able to demonstrate that you had no fault
in the accident, it greatly increases your opportunity to receive full
compensation for any loss of income, damage to your property and medical
expenses. For some, the firm's attorneys can seek damages for your
mental pain and suffering as well. How these monies will be paid and who
must pay them can frequently become complex. There are, however, many
options that can be pursued so that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
In trucking, there are multiple factors that can lead to an accident, and
the majority of these dangerous and deadly accidents are related to some
form of negligence. Incorrect loading, logging too many miles without
rest, a failure to maintain the vehicle, negligent safety inspections,
DWI violations and other forms of negligence are all too common in the
trucking industry. The size and weight of a truck that is operated by
a negligent or intoxicated driver can change an innocent person's
life in a second. The firm will manage your case with a great deal of
professional skill. You can be confident that you are represented by a
highly qualified trial attorney that has the experience and skills to
aggressively fight for justice and compensation.
