A number of factors can cause a semi truck accident in Louisiana

When a semi truck collision in Louisiana results in serious injury or death, a police investigation will typically be undertaken to determine the cause. In many cases, the lawyers for victims or their families will also undertake their own investigations. These investigations often reveal the cause of the wreck to be truck driver negligence, unsafe policies of the truck company or negligent truck maintenance.

Motorcycles are a popular means of transportation and recreation in Louisiana. But there are dangers inherent in riding a motorcycle. In a collision, a motorcyclist lacks the protection of an enclosed steel vehicle body. Even the most careful rider can suffer severe injuries or even death in a collision caused by a negligent driver.

Anyone who drives on Louisiana highways is used to the sight of big tractor-trailer trucks towering over their vehicle. A lot of drivers are intimidated around these big rigs and with good reason. The huge size and weight of these trucks makes them extremely dangerous in an accident. When a semi truck is involved in an accident with a car, SUV or pickup truck, the results often include death or serious injury for those in the smaller vehicle.
