Truck Accidents Archives

Where to turn after a serious head injury

A previous post talked about how March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Thus, this is a good time to remember the victims of serious head injuries. New Orleans, Louisiana, residents who suffer from brain injuries often have to go through a lot, simply to function in daily life. And, even more so, just to be able to return to work and support their families.

Federal regulations sharply limit trucker cell phone use

People in and around New Orleans probably recognize that distracted driving can be a real problem on Louisiana's roadways. Those who have seen someone trying to drive while they are talking on or using their cell phones know that they tend to drift in their lanes, not stop and engage in other dangerous behavior unwittingly.

Understanding truck driver and truck company liability

Semi-truck traffic is common on the roadways in New Orleans. Victims of truck accidents are more likely to sustain serious injuries or be fatally injured in a truck accident than other types of accidents. The size disparity between semi-trucks and passenger vehicles can result in catastrophic injuries and accidents. Injuries that can be suffered in a truck accident can include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones or soft tissue injuries which can have long-term consequences for victims.

Truck logs are helpful to determine truck driver negligence

A Louisianan-trucking log is an important method of verifying that a truck driver is abiding by trucking regulations that are in place to help keep the driving public safe. Truck drivers spend long hours on the road and truck driver fatigue and lack of attention to the road, as a result can be a concern. Truck drivers are regulated by the United States Department of Transportation, which sets limits for the numbers of hours truck drivers can spend behind the wheel of a truck without a break.

Truck accidents can result in serious injuries to victims

Truck accidents are serious accidents that can cause catastrophic injuries and death to victims. Serious injuries that can result from truck accidents can include brain injuries and spinal cord and back injuries. Because of the size disparity of semi-trucks compared to passenger vehicles they share the roadways with, victims of truck accidents hit in a passenger vehicle are more likely to sustain serious injuries than in some other types of accidents.
