Standing Our Ground To Protect Your Rights

Accidents that involve 18-wheelers or other commercial trucks include many factors that only an attorney with experience handling these serious cases can handle. Injuries are often devastating, and fatalities are more likely than in crashes involving smaller vehicles.

At The Law Offices of Ossie Brown, we have a track record of obtaining fair compensation for families in Baton Rouge and across Louisiana who have been affected by one of these serious accidents. We represent clients in trucking accidents cases on a contingency fee basis — you pay nothing unless we are successful and recover compensation on your behalf.

An initial case evaluation with one of our experienced attorneys is always free. At this meeting, we take the time to understand what happened and help you sort out your options.

Please review our case results, which include six-figure recoveries in truck accidents that have helped past clients put their lives back together.

Truck Accidents Can Happen Anywhere

A serious accident can occur on any 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 driver carelessness or other avoidable causes such as:

  • Fatigue when a driver stays behind the wheel longer than allowed by federal rules
  • Prescription medication, drug or alcohol use
  • Speed when trying to meet deadlines
  • Unsafe equipment or negligent maintenance

As in all other injury-causing accidents, we will conduct a thorough investigation and call in experts, if necessary. We consider factors unique to commercial truck accidents, such as driving logs that may indicate fatigue, the truck driver's record and potential violations of special federal trucking regulations.

Thorough And Caring Attention

Our compassionate lawyers and staff focus on minimizing your stress and disruption during recovery. We will:

  • Deal with the insurance issues
  • Ensure you receive quality treatment from top medical specialists
  • Answer all your questions honestly and completely

After one of these accidents, be skeptical if an insurance company representative rushes to settle your case or says you do not need to involve a lawyer. These are clear signs that you need skilled representation.

Fighting For You

Insurance companies have conflicting interests and must consider the bottom line when offering a settlement. This may not fully account for all the costs you have suffered.

We focus on what is best for you from a free initial consultation to completion of your case. Learn how we can help by calling 225-424-7388 or sending us a message to set up an appointment.
