Truck crashes are almost always serious, and are very often catastrophic. They are emotionally grueling, but they are also, in many instances, legally complex. Be sure you have the services of an experienced Louisiana injury attorney to help you get the beneficial results you deserve.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 2017 was a very deadly year for truck crashes that inflicted fatal injuries. (The institute has not released the numbers for 2018.) 4,102 people died in wrecks involving large trucks, making it the first time in a decade that the total number of deaths exceeded 4,100. Some fatal truck accidents are unavoidable, but too many occur as a result of someone failing to do his/her job as well as he/she should. Whether it was a driver driving unsafely, a maintenance worker failing to complete truck repairs properly, or a trucking company putting unsafe trucks and/or drivers on the road when it reasonably should have known better, many people die every year in this country due to negligence in relation to semi trucks. If you have been hurt, or have lost a loved one, due to a trucking accident reach out to a Louisiana personal injury attorney.
