You Might Be Entitled to These Recoverable Damages
When a DHL truck collides with you as a driver, a passenger in the impacted vehicle, a pedestrian, or a cyclist, the at-fault driver or his employer might be responsible for compensating you for the resulting financial damages.
If you were involved in a DHL truck accident in one of these capacities, we might be able to help you recover these financial expenses and losses:
- Past and future wages and income loss
- Current and upcoming medical expenses
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Physical disfigurement or deformities
- Property damage or total destruction
You might find it difficult to accurately value your compensation claim on your own. When our team is on your side, we fight hard to uncover all the financial expenses and losses you might be entitled to.

Do Not Put Your Right to Sue at Risk
When you are preparing to take the at-fault party to court to seek compensation for your truck accident injuries, you must obey all legal deadlines. Filing your personal injury lawsuit is generally limited by the Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §3492 to one year from the date of the accident.
Miscalculating the timeline or failing to file your lawsuit on time for any reason may put your lawsuit at risk of being dismissed without ever being heard. When you contact our legal team early, we may have the time needed to ensure compliance with the statute of limitations and avoid putting your potential right to compensation at risk.

If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, Louisiana Revised Statutes (RS) §32:398 requires you to file a crash report. Your crash report can help paint a clear picture of your accident. It may tell us how to contact:
- The DHL driver
- His company
- The appropriate insurer
- Accident witnesses
It may also tell us the date that establishes the statute of limitations, primary and secondary factors that contributed to the accident, and the size and type of DHL delivery vehicle involved in the accident. The crash report may contain accident diagrams and narratives along with witness observations, points of impact, and injury details that may be supported by your medical records.
When we request your medical records, we do so to prove the extent and cost of your accident injuries. Medical records provide details about the severity of your injuries, your treatment plan, and your future prognosis. They also help us calculate the monetary value of your injuries, the treatments you received to date, and the cost of future treatments you may need to reach maximum physical recovery.
