Truck Accidents

Big Truck Accident Attorney in Hammond

The Lawyer on the Truck™. You need an attorney who isn’t afraid to fight the big truck companies. Big truck accidents are often severe due to the momentous size and weight of their vehicles, including 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, flat beds, tank trucks, delivery trucks, box trucks, and dump trucks. A wreck involving a big truck can often be fatal. Trucking companies have nearly unlimited legal resources to expend and will go to whatever extent necessary to defend their drivers. They immediately dispatch an “accident investigation team” to the scene of the accident and attempt to minimize or completely extinguish their liability. This is only the beginning. Trucking companies are aggressive in their attempts to strengthen the case for truck drivers and weaken the victim’s chance of recovery. For this reason, it is essential that injured victims contact an experienced big truck accident lawyer as quickly as possible so they can use the resources, knowledge, and experience necessary to recover the compensation that you deserve. The expert attorneys at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys have helped clients across Louisiana obtain due justice. Contact our team today at 985.888.8888.
