Commercial Trucking Accidents New Orleans Louisiana
What is the difference between Workers' Compensation law and other types of law?
Commercial Trucking & Auto Accidents involve specialized legal frameworks that include federal and state transportation laws, insurance policies, and employer liability, making them distinct from general personal injury law or other Workers' Compensation cases.
This area of law is multi-faceted, involving a maze of regulations and entities like trucking companies, insurance providers, and federal and state agencies.
What are the different types of Commercial Trucking & Auto Accidents?
Commercial Trucking & Auto Accidents can manifest in various ways, including:
Rear-End Collisions: Often occur due to sudden braking or tailgating.
Head-On Collisions: Highly dangerous and often fatal, resulting from wrong-way driving or loss of control.
Side-Impact Collisions: Also known as "T-bone" accidents, usually happen at intersections.
Jackknife Accidents: Specific to trucks, occur when the trailer folds towards the cab.
Rollovers: Trucks or cars flipping over, often due to high speeds or sharp turns.
How often do Commercial Trucking & Auto Accidents happen each year?
The frequency of commercial trucking and auto accidents is alarmingly high. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), around 500,000 trucking accidents occur annually in the United States. While not all these accidents lead to Workers' Compensation claims, a significant number do, making it crucial for individuals to know their rights and for businesses to understand their liabilities.

A Proven Reputation
"Forrest Cressy James is an amazing law firm that provides tremendous attention and care to all their clients and their needs.
When I was injured in my accident, Nick was never more than a call away from answering my questions and counseling through the process of rehab, recovery, and gaining restitution. I never once felt as if I was just another customer and instead felt like I was a friend and family member who they were willing to fight for to the end.
FCJ will always be the most trusted firm in my book."
“After trying to handle my personal injury claim on my own, and becoming completely overwhelmed, I reached out to Byron for assistance.
My claim was resolved quickly for well over six figures and most importantly, I had peace-of-mind in knowing that I wasn’t taken advantage of by insurance companies.
If you want a law firm that is professional, efficient, and treats you like a person, not just a “file number,” Forrest Cressy James is your team."
"I have had at least two occasions with accidents where the other drivers were not honest with their insurance company. It’s a situation police don’t always have time for right away, and my city has tourists that will treat it as if it never happened.
I can honestly say I didn’t have any stress in the cases. Not from the insurance companies (mine and theirs) and most importantly no pressure from my attorneys.
There was never a moment I felt alone in this. A+ from start to end. I ended up recovering $150,000 thanks to Byron and Eliza."
