Determining Liability for Your Losses
When we take your case at Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, we start by conducting a full investigation into your accident and getting to the bottom of what happened. We want to know exactly who was responsible and what they did to contribute to or cause your injuries. Once we identify all the liable parties, an Intracoastal City truck accident lawyer will collect evidence against them and pursue them and their insurers for compensation.
The list of liable parties may include:
The Truck Driver
We can hold the truck driver liable if they broke a traffic law, engaged in negligent behavior behind the wheel, or violated any trucking industry regulation leading up to the accident—for instance, they had been driving for too many hours without rest in violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)’s hours of service regulations. We will examine their logbook to look for evidence of violations.
Other Parties Like the Trucking Company and Truck Parts Manufacturer
We may be able to pursue a negligent trucking company or truck part manufacturer who allowed the sale of a defective part that contributed to your accident. Every truck accident is unique, and yours might feature responsible parties we have not mentioned.
So, we conduct such a thorough investigation into every accident we litigate. For a free, no-obligation case evaluation, call Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers at (337) 777-7777.

Determining the Value of Your Losses and Damages
At Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, we will always fight for the full and fair compensation our clients deserve. We pursue both economic and noneconomic damages. So, we go after not only your medical bills and lost wages, but also money to compensate you for your pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other damages that cannot be quantified in dollar terms.
We may be able to help you recover a settlement or award that includes the following damages and more:
- Medical Bills: We will go after the value of both your current medical bills and those you and your medical team expect you to incur in the future.
- Lost Wages: If you had to miss work while recovering from your injury, we will help you recover the value of your lost paychecks.
- Reduced Earning Capacity: We can also help you recover the difference in what you are able to earn going forward and what you would have been able to earn had you not been injured.
- Pain and Suffering and Inconvenience: You deserve monetary compensation for the physical and emotional pain you suffered because of your truck accident injuries.
We may be able to pursue other forms of damages on your behalf, depending on the circumstances of your case.
Keep the Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Lawsuits in Mind
The Louisiana statute of limitations on filing a personal injury claim is one year under LA Art. 3492. However, this timeline can vary based on several factors, so it is a good idea to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.
