After a collision, victims often suffer for months or years after the accident. Recovering costs money, not to mention that you may be dealing with trauma and anxiety. If you were recently injured in a collision, you may be owed compensation that could cover the cost of any expenses you’ve incurred since the accident. Our Fort Polk 18-wheeler accident lawyer could help you recover these expenses and other losses.
The distress you may be feeling because of medical bills or car repairs can be alleviated by taking legal action against those who’ve caused the damage. When you’re ready to fight for the compensation that you’re owed, Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers can help. We’re a Louisiana firm with multiple locations and over 100 combined years of experience in personal injury law.
Recoverable Damages for 18-Wheeler Accidents
Any damage the 18-wheeler accident has caused you is something we may try to recover. This could include anything from bills with a clear financial cost to any negative effect that the accident has had on your quality of life.
Some examples of things you could be compensated for include:
- Doctors appointments
- Emergency room visit
- Prescription medicine
- Repairs to your car
- Repairs to other property
- Lost wages
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Lessened quality of life
Not all of these have a clear price tag. Your quality of life and well being isn’t something that you can put a price on, but it’s something you deserve to be compensated for if it was negatively affected by a truck accident. Our team will do its best to understand what you’ve lost, so we can account for it in pursuing your financial award.

What Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers Has Done for Previous Accident Victims
We’ve had many verdicts and settlements worth millions of dollars. Many of our most successful case resolutions have been for automobile accident victims
Specifically for 18-wheeler accidents, we’ve had a $7,000,000 judgment, a $2,700,000 settlement, and a $1,750,000 trial verdict, just to name a few. That is money that our clients were able to use to pay their bills while they recovered from their accidents.
But How Did Our Clients Feel About Working With Us?
We’ve been able to recover impressive financial awards for previous clients, but the final result is not the only thing that matters.
It’s also important that we give our clients peace of mind throughout their case. We do this by answering all of their questions and caring about their well being. Here is what a previous client had to say about working with us:
“I was feeling more and more pain and went to the doctor. I had two surgeries in my neck and my back. I made an appointment with David and it was a real good experience. He worked with me all the way and was like a good friend in a time of need. I don’t think anybody could have done a better job than he did,” said Keith.

Potentially Liable Parties in an 18-Wheeler Accident
One reason it may be helpful to hire legal help for your truck accident is that these kinds of cases often have more than one liable party. While the driver seems the obvious responsible party, several factors may have contributed to the accident that may implicate others.
Here are some other potentially liable parties in your collision:
- The trucking company
- The truck manufacturer
- The truck’s parts manufacturer
- Maintenance technicians
- The cargo loading company
During our investigation, we will determine the cause of your accident, and consequently, the person or persons responsible. We will pursue them for what you’re owed by building a strong case against them.
How Much Time Can Pass Until You Have to File?
The countdown starts on the date of the accident for a personal injury case and the date of the loved one’s passing for a wrongful death action. After this year has passed, a few different things can happen:
- You may be barred from filing your case at all
- Your case may be thrown out while it’s already in progress
- You may be unable to secure a fair settlement
We hope we can help you avoid these negative consequences. As your legal representatives, we can track and fulfill these requirements on your behalf.
