Louisiana firm fighting to impose liability on negligent truckers

On Behalf of | Dec 28, 2016 | Firm News, Truck Accidents |

Last week on the blog we discussed how trucks should operate in hazardous conditions. When truckers in Louisiana fail to drive safely in wet, icy or foggy conditions, they can lose control of their vehicle and cause a devastating truck accident. Victims of these tragic wrecks can be subjected to extensive losses that can leave them physically, emotionally and financially damaged.

Fortunately, these individuals may be able to recover their losses if they succeed in imposing liability on a trucker and the truck company for which he or she works. In order to win on such a claim, though, a victim must be able to show that the trucker or his employer acted negligently and that negligence caused the accident and the victim’s injuries. This can be a difficult task, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the wreck.

At Tauzin & Lorio Attorneys at Law, we know the issues that can arise in these cases. We also know common tactics taken by defense attorneys. This, together with our extensive knowledge of the law and our experience, allow us to craft persuasive legal arguments that support our clients’ claims. Our legal team gathers crucial evidence and works to undermine the other side’s arguments, which may include objecting to the evidence they present at trial. That is not to say that all cases go to trial. In fact, many resolve through settlement negotiations. But we only advise our clients to take a settlement when it is fair and in their best interests.

At our firm, our focus is to recoup compensation for those who have been unfairly harmed. It is our hope that our clients will walk away with the money they need to cover their medical expenses and lost wages, giving them the financial stability they need to allow them to focus on their recovery. The choice of an attorney is one that should not be taken lightly, so we encourage those considering legal representation to do carefully consider all their options.
