Although whenever we get behind the wheel of our car and head out on the roads we may take for granted the many potential hazards that exist, many are hidden in plain sight each day. Trucks. Whether it is a commercial 18-wheeler barreling down the highway or a dump truck heading up and down the road you live on, we see trucks so often that many of us are simply unaware of their potential dangers.
Trucks on the road are significantly larger and heavier than a traditional car. Newton’s first law of motion tells us that an action in motion will stay in motion unless another force acts on it, and that the heavier an object, the harder it is to slow or stop.
This means that if you are on a highway with a truck behind you, it will take longer for the truck to stop. It also means that a truck beside you will have a more difficult time swerving to avoid a potential hazard on the roads. Truck drivers also have their own set of issues to deal with. Semi-trucks are susceptible to dangerous crosswinds and are prone to jackknifing when in inclement weather.

We only collect fees from your settlement when we win. We serve clients throughout Louisiana and southern Mississippi. We have offices conveniently located in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana and New Orleans, Louisiana. If you have been involved in a car, motorcycle or truck accident, you may want to reach out to a lawyer to see if you are eligible for compensation for your injuries.
