Tractor-Trailer Accidents in New Orleans
If you have been injured in a collision involving a commercial truck, the owner or the trucking company could be held liable for the negligent behavior of the operator. Accidents involving oversized commercial trucks commonly cause severe injuries that demand immediate medical attention. From the moment the ambulance arrives at the scene of the accident, through transport and hospitalization, medical treatments, and physical rehabilitation, the expense of a tractor-trailer accident in New Orleans can stack up quickly.
Tractor-trailer accidents that are frequently caused by negligence on the part of the company and/or operator include overloaded or overweight trailers, defective truck parts, inadequate or no maintenance, insufficient driver training, speeding, or other illegal driving habits, especially when coupled with bad weather or road conditions, and drivers who are fatigued from being overworked who are more likely to make miscalculations and other errors of judgment.
