Let a New Orleans Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer Pursue Your Compensation
Delivery companies with large fleets of trucks and vans make billions of dollars in revenue every year. However, when one of their drivers, or a defective truck, causes an accident they might try to cover up the evidence of their negligence, push the blame onto the injured party, or pressure them into setting out-of-court. That is why if you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a delivery vehicle you need to call a New Orleans delivery truck accident attorney right away.
Why Delivery Trucks are Dangerous to Other Drivers and Pedestrians
Delivery trucks are a huge safety concern for many drivers on the road. Since box trucks and delivery vans are larger than most passenger vehicles, they pose a higher risk for smaller cars when they collide. Since many companies demand drivers make their deliveries within a certain amount of time, some drivers are pressured into cutting corners with safety regulations, such as not getting the legally required amount of rest. A fatigued delivery driver behind the wheel of a truck can lead to fatal accidents on the road.
Those fortunate enough to survive a delivery truck accident may sustain severe injuries. From multiple broken bones, to third degree burns, or head trauma, and even internal bleeding, there are many serious injuries that can occur. Such horrible injuries can take many months, even years to recover from, if the victim ever does fully recover.
The trucking company’s insurer may try to make you settle for less than you deserve, so taking them to court is the best way to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries or the wrongful death of your loved one. Our New Orleans delivery truck accident lawyers here at Bloom Legal want you and your family to get a fair settlement and will fight for you until you do.
Why You Need a New Orleans Delivery Truck Accident Attorney
Delivery truck accidents can be quite complex for a number of reasons. For one, there can be multiple liable parties in such a crash. The truck driver, the delivery company itself, and even the manufacturer of the truck could be responsible for the collision. Multiple liable parties means different lines of insurance coverage. To determine how many different liable parties and lines of insurance coverage there are requires a professional legal team.
A personal injury firm like Bloom Legal can help you with each step of the process. From investigating the facts and evidence, to filing insurance and mediating settlements, a delivery truck accident lawyer will see it through.
