Driving for long hours can become monotonous and in cab distractions can lead to injuring innocent by standers. Although drivers are required to adhere to federal regulations involving time on the road, taking breaks and their loads, shortcuts in driver safety can result in negligence behind the wheel. Under federal and state laws, a trucking company may be held liable for driver negligence occurring in Louisiana. A Gordon & Elias truck accident lawyer will vigorously defend an injured client’s rights by holding trucking companies and their drivers accountable for their trucking accidents.
