Liability in a LaPlace Garbage Truck Accident Case
Garbage truck accident cases can be complex. According to Louisiana Civil Code Article 2320, in an accident caused by a LaPlace garbage truck the employer may be the liable party, not the driver. Depending on who owned and operated the garbage truck in your LaPlace accident, the potentially liable party could be:
- A private garbage and refuse company
- A local government agency
- A company that handles waste and disposal for businesses
- Another company with a truck passing through LaPlace
If the garbage truck in your accident was owned by the municipal government, there could be special rules and timelines that apply to filing your case. An attorney from Morris Bart, LLC can determine who the liable party is in your case and help you bring action against them. We will pursue your compensation no matter if the liable party is a government agency, contracted private company, a large corporation, or another entity. We do not shy away from complex cases or cases with multi-party liability. For a free consultation on the specifics of your case, call us today at 504-613-4771.

Time Is Limited to Take Legal Action
Louisiana Civil Code Article 3492 generally gives accident victims until the first anniversary of their accident to file a lawsuit against the liable party or parties. If you miss the deadline set by this statute of limitations, you could lose your right to take the company or agency responsible to court. If the liable party is a municipal government, parish government, or other government agency, there may be additional deadlines to meet before the one-year time limit. To ensure you do not miss any deadlines and to protect your right to compensation in your case, we recommend calling our team and letting us review your case as soon as your injuries allow.
