With more than 11 million 18-wheeler rigs on our roads nationwide, it is not surprising that accidents occur. In Louisiana, truck accidents are responsible for almost 1,000 injuries annually. A car is no match for an 18-wheeler maxed out at 40 tons. Because of the great size and force of these vehicles, many of these crashes result in death.
Serious injuries to the brain and spinal cord are common. Many of these injuries could be avoided with more training, up-to-date safety systems, and rested drivers. But these investments cut into trucking company profits, so the result for many is catastrophic injury or death.

Our clients know that when we take their cases, we spare no effort to obtain the highest possible compensation for their injuries and losses.
It is especially important in truck accident cases to move quickly. Most trucking companies today maintain an on-board computer in each truck that stores critical information, like a black box on a plane. These records place the vehicle in its exact location and speed at the time of the accident.
At Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson, we move quickly to secure this and other critical information — driver records, police reports, witnesses descriptions — while the information is still fresh.
