Truck Accident Settlement

New Orleans Truck Accident Lawyer
What You Need To Know About Your Lawsuit

Because of the large nature of a truck and the potential of it carrying hazardous materials, the injuries suffered from such an accident can be catastrophic. The victim of such a collision can suffer financially, emotionally, and physically.  The Cardone Law Firm will fight for each client and get the necessary results. We can get compensation for: 

  • Medical/hospital bills
  • Short-term wage losses
  • Long-term economic hardship from continued loss of earnings
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Physical therapy
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Funeral Expense
  • Punitive Damages

Add to all of this the general stress of caring for your family in the aftermath of a truck accident and you may find yourself willing to accept the first settlement offer that comes your way just so that you can move on. In fact, you have probably already received an offer from at least one insurance company adjuster. Do not accept a quick settlement.  Even though these settlements may seem large, medical bills and expenses will add up and that check will no longer cover many of these bills.

Liability is complicated in trucking accidents because multiple parties could be held liable, including:

  • The truck owner
  • The freight owner
  • The driver 
  • The driver’s employer
  • The truck’s manufacturer
  • Other Third Parties

It is also possible that third parties are involved, such as maintenance companies, vehicle manufacturers and third party drivers. All of these parties' principal concern is not making sure you earn a top settlement in a Louisiana truck accident lawsuit, but protecting their own interests. 

You Need An Experienced New Orleans Truck Accident Lawyer

While a settlement offered by an insurance company may seem like a good offer at first, it is important to remember that the goal of any insurance company is to pay out as little as possible. Tens of thousands of dollars may seem like a lot, but it is not much for a major insurance company, and may not take into consideration all of your family’s future needs.

This is where you need the legal assistance of an experienced New Orleans truck accident attorney. The Cardone Law Firm has the necessary resources to sift through the countless regulations that come into play when there has been a truck accident. We will be able to hire the necessary experts to raise the value of your case and receive the top amount of compensation as possible.

The Cardone Law Firm has your interests at heart. Without help from experienced legal professionals, your truck accident settlement in Louisiana may fall well short of what is fair compensation.
