A post from a few weeks ago focused on truck manufacturers attempting to improve the safety features of their commercial vehicles. Safety features that are being implemented by Volvo Trucks and Daimler were highlighted. Although these companies are making an attempt to make a safer vehicle, however, the fact remains that 18-wheelers can be dangerous hazards on the roads of Louisiana.
When these massive machines collide with unsuspecting drivers, the results are often catastrophic. Here at Frischhertz Poulliard Frischertz Impastato, we know how to help victims of 18-wheeler accidents. These types of cases are a special class of personal injury cases that often require more investigation than the average car crash.
The reason the investigation is more difficult is due to the power of the truck companies. Accident victims will need a firm with extensive resources to take on these powerful companies. To properly investigate 18-wheeler accidents, one must complete an evaluation of the state of the driver at the time of the accident, and review the driver’s log and road conditions at the time of the accident. These are all important factors that must be taken into consideration. When necessary, this firm will hire accident reconstruction experts to examine the scene of the collision and give expert testimony.
Negligence occurs when a duty is breached or violated. In the case of an 18-wheeler accident, negligence may have occurred due to a tired or overworked driver. Our attorneys will put together the details of the investigation to present a case of negligence against the trucking companies where it is warranted. Our firm will work to ensure that the medical and financial needs of your family are met.
