Large commercial trucks maintain an important role in society. Any motorist in Louisiana can attest that it is fairly common to share the roads with semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks. While it is commonplace to see these massive vehicles on the roadways, this does not make it any easier for motorists to travel near them. Commercial trucks do not operate the same way as smaller vehicles, which is why they require special training by truck drivers to properly maneuver them. Nonetheless, some truckers operate their vehicles without the proper training, drive while overworked and fatigued, and trucking companies often overlook federal trucking regulations in order to make timely deliveries. These situations could lead to a serious or even fatal truck accident.
The aftermath of a truck crash can be devastating. Smaller motor vehicles cannot withstand the size and power of a commercial truck, often resulting in a destructive accident wreck that can leave victims with a wide variety of injuries ranging from scratches and bruises to broken bones and head injuries.
