Experienced Louisiana Truck Accident Injury Attorney
It almost goes without saying that investigating the cause of a severe 18-wheeler accident can become quite complex. Therefore, it is important to contact an experienced truck accident attorney as soon as possible following such a tragic event.
At the law office of Chris Villemarette, Trial Lawyer, our Lafayette truck accident investigation attorney personally handles every aspect of truck accident investigation. From our office in Lafayette, we represent 18-wheeler accident victims and their families throughout the state.
Thorough Truck Accident Investigation
Every truck driver and his or her employer have the responsibility to abide by both state and federal interstate trucking safety regulations. We will investigate all forms of evidence to determine whether these regulations were followed, including:
- Interviewing witnesses
- Reviewing trucking logbooks, weigh station receipts, fuel receipts and other hard evidence
- Analyzing the police’s accident report
- Inspecting the truck itself, whether on scene or off, to ensure physical damage that may be used as evidence is not tampered with
- Obtaining access to the truck’s “black box,” which records information such as how fast the truck was going, when the brakes were engaged, how much force was applied to them and other factors which may have contributed to the accident
- Investigating the driver’s traffic history for any past incidents of truck driver negligence
Since we handle each personal injury case on a contingency fee basis, we only get paid when you do. Therefore, you can trust that we are doing our utmost to recover the compensation you deserve.
Aggressive Protection Of Your Right To Maximum Compensation
Many trucking companies send their own investigators or insurance adjusters directly to the scene of an accident. Sometimes, unfortunately, these individuals take steps to minimize their client’s liability. Witnesses may be asked leading questions. Physical evidence may “disappear,” faulty lights or brake systems repaired or replaced, or black box information recorded over. Perhaps the driver will be sent on another assignment across country while investigations are pending, so he or she is unavailable for comment.
We expect these kinds of challenges and fight against them by doing our due diligence. Unlike some firms who rely on private investigators, our own attorney will be on the scene to ask questions and investigate the evidence. By doing his own homework, he will aggressively pursue maximum compensation to which you are entitled for your injuries and losses.
