St. Mary Parish Trucking Accident Attorney

ST MARY PARISH TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

When commercial drivers become fatigued from excessive daily and weekly work hours, they substantially increase the risk of crashes that result in death or serious injuries. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), more than 750 people die and 20,000 more are injured each year due directly to fatigued commercial vehicle drivers.

Truck drivers, through driving logs and other records, are held to a higher standard than drivers of passenger vehicles, and trucking companies are required to follow strict procedures involving hiring practices, truck maintenance, recording keeping, and time on the job. Trucking accident attorneys can work with you to understand the common reasons for trucking accidents, and the relationships among the persons and entities connected to the truck, the trailer, and the load. The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess will help you determine whether you have a valid claim and how your case will be presented.
