For example, The Provisions of The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulate the time limit truckers can drive per day.

Trucking companies are known for having some of the best legal teams in the country as their livelihood depends on their clean record. Don’t let them take advantage of you.

Commercial Vehicle Negligence
Commercial vehicles are highly regulated since large vehicles can cause devastating and deadly accidents. However, this means the lawyers their companies hire are often viciously versed in the regulations to help drivers maintain a spotless record. Those drivers are trained on how to win their case from the moment the accident occurs. Commercial drivers rely on everyday drivers being unsure of how to legally protect themselves. Don’t be left without the right defense! Our team has decades of successful experience dealing with commercial vehicle negligence and can provide you with the help you need.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving accidents can cause some of the most tragic car results. They can create physical, emotional, and financial damage for you and your loved ones. Louisiana Civil Code article 2315.4 states that if you or a loved one was hurt by a drunk driver, the additional damages are available under Louisiana law. After all the suffering caused by reckless behavior, you deserve legal representation that will compassionately defend you.
Because of the exposed riding style of motorcycles, Baton Rouge car accidents involving motorcycles are often catastrophic or even deadly. The dangers of riding a motorcycle increase when the riders aren’t wearing proper protective gear like helmets. Motorcycle enthusiasts suffer staggering damages in the aftermath of accidents. Unfortunately, motorcycle drivers are often the party found at fault by the investigating officer. This can be due to sound findings, but often the severity of the injuries sustained by the motorcyclist prevents them from delivering their account at the scene or recounting with full clarity at a later date. WCW is experienced in defending motorcycle accidents and will fight for your best interest.
