Louisiana Truck Accident Attorneys
There is so much at stake with a truck accident case. The injuries are often catastrophic, federal and state truck laws play a large part in determining fault, and trucking companies and their insurers often have high-powered lawyers on their side.
Hoffoss Devall has the experience and the resources to obtain justice in 18-wheeler and commercial trucking crashes. Our Lake Charles truck accident attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for clients in hundreds of accidents in Southwest Louisiana and throughout the state.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a negligent trucker, do not hesitate to contact us to schedule a free initial consultation. We encourage you to seek help as soon as possible after the accident — our attorneys will need to have immediate access to driver’s logbooks, Department of Transportation (DOT) reports, and other evidence vital to your claim.

Our team at Hoffoss Devall has an extensive background in truck accident cases. We understand trucking regulations and how to uphold victims’ rights during the claims process. Our lawyers are members of the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America, an affiliation that gives us additional resources and knowledge to provide the best representation possible to our clients.
Truck accident cases often hinge on whether the driver or carrier violated the federal regulations governing motor carriers. When you work with Hoffoss Devall, we uncover evidence of the causes of the accident, which may include items such as:
- Overloaded trucks
- Truck driver fatigue
- Falsified logbooks
- Improper truck maintenance
We also hold employers accountable for negligent hiring, safety practices, training and supervision of drivers. While these cases are winnable, much of the evidence we need is in the hands of the trucking company. To ensure the trucking company does not “lose” to evidence, we send the trucking company a spoliation letter as soon as possible to ensure preservation.
