Large commercial trucks are the lifeline of the US economy, but truck accidents also result in serious injuries and fatalities, thanks to the sheer size and the speed of the vehicles. Most of these accidents result from overspeeding, overloading, distracted driving, lack of sleep, and ignoring of traffic rules.
If you or a loved one has sustained an injury in a truck accident and you are sure that it has been caused by the mistake of someone else, Louisiana’s personal injury laws allow you to file a lawsuit. However, you’ll need to hire a lawyer to represent your case.
Complications in Trucking Accident Lawsuits
Here it is to be noted that trucking accident cases are more complex than those concerning cars and bikes. The liability in these cases is shared as the owner of the truck and the one managing an entire fleet of trucks are different. Proving the mistake of the driver is not easy. Even if a driver did not take proper rest and caused the mistake because of exhaustion, proving this in a court of law would be difficult. In such a case, an experienced lawyer will be required to check the driver’s log and go through event data recorders. The latter is like a blackbox and provides important information on how the vehicle was being operated prior to the accident.
How We Can Help
Negligence can happen in many ways. We can help you demonstrate how the negligence of a driver, a trucking company, or another party led to your injuries.
Negligence or recklessness can take many forms. If a truck is overloaded or not maintained properly, this is also a form of recklessness. A qualified lawyer can help prove how the negligence of the other party led to the injury. Apart from this, legal representatives have an in-depth understanding of the various rules. They do their own investigation and build a strong case, which compels insurance companies to offer the desired settlement amount.
