Trucking is one of the primary ways that companies move goods across the country. Like every other state, Louisiana has its fair share of trucks that haul goods in and out of the state on a daily basis. New Orleans is, of course, a hub for a lot of trucking activity, due to the active ports in the area.
Because trucking goes hand-in-hand with so many other industries, truck drivers can feel pressure to always get to their destination on time. Also, truck owners and truck companies may put additional pressure on drivers by insisting that they work long hours and drive as fast as possible. Over time, however, this can become a recipe for disaster.
At the Kambur Law Firm, we know how the pressures of commercial trucking can drastically affect innocent motorists. Whether a tractor-trailer accident is caused by a distracted truck driver or an equipment malfunction, we search out the evidence in hopes that it will prove the root cause of the accident.
