A previous post on this blog discussed how federal regulations are in place to prevent federally regulated truck drivers from using their cell phones while they operate their vehicles.
This is a good idea, as a distracted truck drivers can travel yards. The danger of this is obviously that they will slam their large tuck into much smaller vehicles, which in turn could easily leave a New Orleans resident severely injured.
Unfortunately, the most federal authorities, or their state counterparts, can do to a truck driver or truck company that engages in or tolerates distracted driving is impose fines or, at worst, take licensing. The authorities are not able to make sure victims get compensation for their losses.
Nonetheless, injured New Orleans victims can take steps toward getting the justice they deserve by contacting our law office. While we cannot promise results, we do have a proven track record of success with tens of millions of dollars for victims of truck accidents over the years.
Our approach is simple: we make sure that we do a thorough accident investigation, and we pursue every available avenue to get our clients' compensation. We work to identify where a truck driver may have been in the wrong or have been distracted. This could include looking at phone records, but it can also include other possible distractions, like whether the driver was trying to eat in the car.
If one suspects they or a loved one was hurt by a distracted truck driver, it is important to get the right kind of help. We are here to offer this assistance.
