Fighting negligence with experience in truck accident cases


Truck companies generally urge their drivers to follow all laws related to driving a big rig, such as speed limits, restrictions on texting while driving and prohibitions on driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. Trucking companies are also required to enforce the various rules regarding the number of hours a truck driver can operate his or her rig or even the timing of driving across various state and interstate highways, including those in Louisiana.

All too often, truck accidents come about after the above rules and regulations are not followed. These incidents frequently result in serious injuries for accident victims who may include passengers as well as drivers of personal cars and motorcycles. In some truck accident cases, crashes can cause rollovers which create multi-vehicle crashes and even more devastation.

The attorneys at Gaar Law Firm have overseen many cases of truck accidents where negligent truck companies and their drivers have been successfully held accountable. The attorneys have extensive experience in dealing with truck companies and their defense tactics in the wake of a damaging wreck.

Truck drivers can lose their commercial driving licenses as a consequence of trucking accidents, affecting their ability to drive but also hindering their ability to get another job. The judge deciding a personal injury case usually looks at previous driving history to determine the level of punishment to be given. Similarly, the severity of injuries caused by the truck accident becomes a major factor in determining penalties.

Having an experienced attorney by one's side can be a huge relief for an injured and exhausted accident victim. Those who want to keep negligent truck drivers off the road can benefit from contacting a Lafayette truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident.
