Big Truck Accident Attorney in Baton Rouge, Livingston, and Ascension



Being involved in an accident with a big truck can be devastating. The sheer size and weight of some of these big trucks is overwhelming. Big trucks, 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, flatbeds, tank trucks, delivery trucks, box trucks and dump truck accidents are usually very serious in nature, often times even deadly. Trucking companies have unlimited legal resources at their disposal and will use almost any means necessary in defense of their driver. The first thing they do is to immediately dispatch their “accident investigation team” to the scene of the accident to eradicate or diminish their liability. This is just the beginning.

A trucking company will do everything in its power to strengthen its case and weaken a victim’s chance of recovery. This is why it’s important for injured victims to immediately contact an experienced big truck accident lawyer with the resources, knowledge, and experience to successfully recover the compensation they deserve. Contact Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys at 225.888.8888 today! Our expert attorneys have helped clients in cities like Baton Rouge, Gonzales, and Denham Springs obtain due justice.
