New Orleans Truck Accident Lawyer

New Orleans, Louisiana, with a population of about 484,674, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 10, US 610, LA 61 and LA 90, where accidents are waiting to happen. Sharing the road with trucks transporting goods can be dangerous. Trucks by default are large, fast moving heavy vehicles, making them even more risky to drive. Drivers have to take an addition driving test to be able to drive these massive vehicles. Even though trucking companies may claim their drivers are safe, accidents still happen. Drivers have hard jobs, they are constantly on the road for long hours, delivering heavy loads- these kinds of pressure can lead to exhaustion and even worse, serious accidents. 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.
