Helping Vehicle Accident Victims Recoup Their Losses

George R TuckerDrivers here in the Tangipahoa Parish and elsewhere in southeastern Louisiana know that the roads are more dangerous than ever. Negligent drivers may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while distracted driving is also a major concern. Regardless of the cause, the results can be devastating. At George R. Tucker, Attorney at Law, we have extensive experience with motor vehicle accidents involving cars, semi trucks and motorcycles.

Accident victims' lives can change in a second by mistakes of another driver. Injuries usually mean time away from work and lost wages for the victims. Another major challenge can be a long-term recovery in the hospital and ongoing therapy once they are discharged as well as general pain and suffering. Sometimes medical advances are not enough, leaving you permanently affected with a head trauma or back injury or even the wrongful death of a loved one.

Protection Also Comes After The Crash

  • Negotiating with the negligent party's representatives for a settlement, or preparing for court to get the compensation that you rightfully deserve
  • Finding you the proper medical attention if you are unable to do so on your own

Trucks Accidents Are Rarely Minor For Victims

Carrying loads exceeding 80,000 pounds, vehicular accidents with 18-wheeler trucks can be catastrophic –— causing the most devastating vehicular accidents. There is a reason the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the U.S. Department of Transportation's regulations placed strict safety standards on the trucking industry.

A trucking accident represents a financial liability for the commercial vehicle owner and its insurer, so the commercial truck's lawyers immediately begin to develop their defense to minimize their financial responsibility.
