    Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorney

    Accidents that involve trucks and commercial vehicles can turn out to be devastating for pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers, and passengers of smaller personal vehicles. These deadly accidents can be prevented if those who operate commercial vehicles adhere to all the road safety regulations.

    According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCA), there were 415,000 commercial vehicle accidents in 2015 in the United States. Under Louisiana law, commercial vehicles include trucks, cars, vans, and SUVs that are used as business vehicles and registered with any commercial company. Drivers of commercial vehicles must have a valid commercial driver’s license.

    Definition Of A Commercial Vehicle Under Louisiana Law

    Louisiana’s commercial vehicles include trucks that are larger in size than personal pickup trucks. These may cover delivery trucks, company trucks, 18-wheelers, and oil tankers. Commercial vehicles are heavy and can result in deadly collisions. With thousands of these carriers plying on American roads every day, there are high chances of road accidents.

    If you or your loved one has been involved in a commercial vehicle accident, it’s advisable to seek the assistance of an experienced accident attorney. For better results, you can reach out to the solicitors at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess.
