Baton Rouge Parish 18-Wheeler Accident Attorney
An 18-wheeler accident involves many factors that call for an attorney with directly relevant experience. Injuries are often devastating and fatalities more likely than in crashes involving smaller vehicles. Proving liability and obtaining just compensation can be major challenges due to the rigorous defense mounted by a trucking company.
At the Law Offices of Ossie Brown, we have represented many Louisiana men, women and families victimized by accidents involving 18-wheelers, tractor trailers rigs, and other large trucks. We encourage you to contact us for caring counsel if you have been hurt — or tragically lost a family member — due to someone's negligence on the road.
Familiarity With Area Highways — Skilled Investigation — Proven Success
A serious car or truck accident can occur on any Louisiana highway or street, but the Interstate 10/I-12 corridor between Baton Rouge and Walker is notorious for 18-wheeler accidents. Many are rear-end collisions or other wrecks that involve a significant element of driver carelessness or other avoidable causes.
We are proven personal injury attorneys with insight gained from auto insurance defense work as well as decades of advocacy for victims. Our case results include six-figure recoveries in cases involving commercial trucks.
As in all other injury-causing accidents, we will conduct a thorough investigation and call in experts if necessary. We consider factors unique to 18-wheeler accident cases, such as driving logs that may indicate fatigue, the truck driver's record, and potential violations of special federal trucking regulations.
