Baton Rouge RV and Trailer Accident Attorney

Information What To Do

Like 18-wheelers and other commercial trucking vehicles, recreational vehicles (RVs) and vehicles with trailers create a tremendous risk for the driving public. Because of their size and weight, RV and trailer accidents usually result in critical injuries or the wrongful death of those involved. If you have suffered severe wounds or lost someone you love in an RV or car-with-trailer accident, seek medical attention immediately. Then, call a competent team of personal injury attorneys.

  • Property damage (e.g., totaled vehicles and damaged personal belongings)
  • Loss of income (e.g., inability to work due to injuries or loss of job)
