Most truck drivers who ply the streets and highways of New Orleans are trained professionals who operate in a safe manner. Unfortunately, some are not, and even those who are sometimes screw up and cause an 18-wheeler accident with injuries or worse. Do injured parties have any recourse when their injuries are caused by a negligent truck driver?
Our legal system provides remedies to those who are legally found to be the victims of the devastation that can sometimes happen due to truck driver neglect. Truck drivers are required to obey all traffic laws and to keep a proper lookout while driving. If they fail to do this, and an injurious or deadly accident results, the driver, the truck company and other parties could be found liable in a court of law.
This blog recently discussed some of the hours of service regulations that a truck driver must comply with. These regulations exist so that truck drivers are properly rested and can operate safely without suffering the effects of fatigue. The victims of fatigued truck drivers deserve justice, and the legal team at Frischhertz Poulliard Frischhertz Impastato, LLC can provide the victims of fatigued truck drivers with a full description of their options and can help victims if they choose to pursue a case against a truck driver or truck company.
