Involved in an 18 Wheel Truck Accident?

Any auto accident is dangerous, let alone being the victim of an 18-wheeled truck accident. Due to the oversize nature and weight of 18-wheelers, injuries and damages from accidents caused by them tend to be much more significant than smaller vehicles. When involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, not only may its driver be held liable, but also the owner of the 18-wheeler and its liability insurance company. Backed by decades of experience, we are ready to represent you to ensure you receive maximum compensation to cover your injuries. We are committed to being on your side, from start to finish.


At Schoenfeld Law Firm, successfully handling your injury claim is our priority, which is why we provide aggressive, client-focused advocacy throughout the entire legal process. We not only assist our clients with getting their vehicles repaired after the accident, but also arranging for our clients to be treated for their injuries without delay.  

As a local business, we take pride in incorporating a hands-on approach in handling our cases for our clients. We maintain direct contact with our clients and update them frequently on our progress. We have the experience of fighting large insurance companies and businesses in court and know how to handle all types of injury cases, both big and small. Since the statute of limitations in Louisiana for auto and truck accidents is one year from the date of the accident, be sure to connect with us soon! The sooner we get started, the easier it is to have a successful outcome in your case. 


When proving liability for 18-wheeler accidents, there are multiple variables to consider. For example, proper driver training, cargo stability, Louisiana state and federal regulations, mechanical malfunction, road condition, and weather are all factors that must be considered when determining who is at fault. Frequently, it is necessary to hire an expert to either recreate the accident scene or to inspect the 18-wheeler to confirm any defects that may have contributed to the accident. However, coordinating these efforts to prove liability can be confusing, overwhelming, expensive, and always a consideration when hiring a personal injury attorney. 


Our attorneys are passionate about helping personal injury victims recover maximum compensation following an accident. We strive to help you recover financially, physically, and emotionally from your accident, and we are ready to assist you from the date of the accident until resolution. Whether in the Lafayette, Acadiana, or New Orleans area, our attorneys are ready to help!
