About Rome, Arata & Baxley -
18 Wheeler Accident Attorneys

Rome, Arata & Baxley Rome, Arata & Baxley is committed to full and fair representation of people seriously injured by a wreck with a semi-truck or 18 wheeler, especially if the cause was the negligent or reckless driving of others. The firm has a combined 80 years of experience in handling serious injury cases. Our attorneys have handled 100s of grade crossing collision cases on behalf of railroaders injured through negligent semi-truck operators. That experience has helped us to develop an efficient protocol to preserve evidence, and successfully litigate claims for anyone injured in an accident with a semi-truck.

We are loyal to the individuals and families we represent and do not represent insurance companies or large corporations. The firm has offices in Houston, Texas and New Orleans, Louisiana.

Our attorneys know the importance of starting to develop your claim as soon as possible. Insurance companies, trucking companies and large corporations start building their defense as soon as a claim is made. They use various tactics in an effort to deny or reduce their obligation to pay even the most legitimate claims. The expertise and experience of our firm have helped many people injured in car wrecks win their legal cases.

We engage a team approach on all cases so that someone is always available to respond to a client’s needs. We also prepare each case for trial, developing each and every theory of recovery to maximize each claim. We do this because the largest claims are won when a case if fully prepared to go to trial. Only then, will the insurance company feel the most pressure to pay full and fair compensation for the injury.

Our firm has successfully handled cases against all types of insurance companies, trucking companies and negligent semi-truck drivers. Our firm has also successfully handled car wrecks, motorcycle accidents, heavy truck accidents, concrete truck accidents, dump truck wrecks, bus accidents, 18 wheeler wrecks, drunk driver wrecks, and other types of accidents.
