Louisiana truck accidents: 4 killed and more injured in wreck

Louisiana State Police are in the process of investigating a chain reaction crash that left four people dead and many more with injuries. This event is said to have involved two semitrailers and eight passenger cars. As is true for most truck accidents, this collision is one that has far-reaching consequences.

Sleep apnea-related truck accidents

In order to operate commercial vehicles, drivers have to keep themselves medically in check. If they have disorders than may affect their ability to drive safely, those disorders must be treated if they wish to keep their commercial licenses. Sleep apnea is one such medical issue that is known to contribute to truck accidents. Louisiana residents who have suffered injuries or worse in collisions caused by truck drivers with this disorder may have legal recourse. 

Common questions following truck accidents

Louisiana sees its fair share of accidents involving semitrailers and other commercial vehicles every year. Those who have been injured or lost loved ones in such incidents are likely to have a number of questions. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions following truck accidents.

Louisiana residents injured in truck accidents may seek relief

Many Louisiana residents have suffered serious physical, emotional and financial trauma following accidents involving semitrailers or other types of commercial trucks. When truck accidents happen, victims may feel alone and lost. They may feel they may never recover, in one way or another. If you've found yourself in such a situation and are struggling to get the help you need so that you can move forward, an experienced personal injury attorney may be able to assist you.

Regulations in place to prevent fatigue-related truck accidents

Most employed people in Louisiana are only allowed to work so many hours at a time or in a given week. This is certainly true for truck drivers. Regulations have been put in place to help prevent fatigue-related truck accidents. Unfortunately, some find that drivers involved in collisions have failed to comply with these regulations.

Insurance settlements from truck accidents may be insufficient

Louisiana residents who have been injured or lost loved ones in collisions with commercial trucks may want to quickly settle with insurance companies in order to get some level of payment and just move on. However, the funds offered in insurance settlements may really be insufficient in the long run. The simple truth is, damages resulting from truck accidents can be extremely costly, and insurance providers are looking out for their bottom line -- not the needs of the victim or his or her family.

Louisiana truck accidents: 1 injured in wreck

Police in Louisiana are looking for the semitrailer driver who caused an accident that left a woman injured. This incident occurred in mid-December in the Shreveport area. According to state laws, those responsible for truck accidents may be responsible for the losses suffered by the victims.
