Shreveport Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer: Get Help Now

Expert Legal Help for Semi-Truck Accidents in Shreveport, LA

Trucking companies are well aware of the dangers associated with trucking and the potential for catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. This is why they design their trucks and train their drivers to be as safe as possible, but they also know that accidents are inevitable. 

Trucking companies have a financial incentive to keep their truckers on the road and to minimize their costs, so it is no surprise that their insurance companies will fight to minimize their payout to you. This is why you need a personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling truck accident claims.

At the Law Offices of Damon D. Kervin, we have helped countless truck accident victims throughout Caddo Parish, as well as the families of those wrongfully killed in devastating collisions with semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, and big rigs. Our Shreveport truck accident attorney can explain your legal rights and devise an innovative strategy aimed at maximizing your recovery.

What Are the Common Causes of Truck Crashes?

There are many ways that truck accidents can occur, most of which can be attributed to negligence. 

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver inexperience
  • Speeding
  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Poor road conditions
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Poor truck design
  • Poor cargo design
  • Improper loading of cargo
  • Overloaded trucks 
  • Hours-of-service violations 

All these factors—and others—can cause a truck accident. Even if the truck driver is not at fault, the trucking company's insurance company may still be liable. Unfortunately, these insurance companies are in the business of minimizing their payouts, so they will often try to blame the victim for their injuries.

Truck accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. You may be permanently disabled and unable to return to your job. You may have to undergo extensive and costly medical treatments. You may have to miss work for months or years. You may have to live with the pain of your injuries for the rest of your life. You may have to deal with the emotional trauma of being permanently disabled. You may have to deal with the loss of companionship from a spouse or child who dies as a result of a truck accident.
