An empty large commercial truck weighs about 10,000 pounds. When loaded with cargo, the full rig may legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds. It is not difficult to understand the adverse impact of a cargo shift that suddenly moves a majority of the truck’s weight.
If cargo isn’t properly loaded or becomes loose in a moving truck, it can suddenly shift the massive vehicle’s center of gravity and send it out of control, rolling over or into a jackknife accident. The destruction such an accident can cause other vehicles and drivers sharing the road with the out-of-control and crashing tractor-trailer is devastating.
Babcock Injury Lawyers works with individuals and families injured in truck accidents in Baton Rouge and surrounding Louisiana communities to help them obtain justice. When overweight containers cause a truck crash, the trucking company and any third-parties responsible for the cargo may be held accountable to those injured.
Our semi-truck accident attorneys seek full compensation for the injured to reimburse them for medical expenses and other losses, as well as for their pain and suffering.
We represent Louisiana truck accident victims with a guarantee of no financial risk to the already suffering accident victims. If we do not recover a monetary settlement or court award, there are no legal fees charged. In the meantime, our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee is that we’ll hand over the entire case file within 30 days of being hired to a client who tells us they are unhappy with our representation with no attorney’s fees or costs owed whatsoever.
Commercial truck accidents are often complex and difficult claims. Large trucking companies (motor carriers) have deep pockets for defending themselves. Our Baton Rouge personal injury attorneys have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to develop a successful truck accident claim for you.
However, the investigation necessary to collect evidence to support a claim requires prompt action. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident that may have been caused by improperly loaded and/or shifting cargo, we urge you to contact Babcock Injury Lawyers today.
