Types and Causes of 18-Wheeler Accidents
Accidents involving tractor-trailer trucks and passenger vehicles can occur for a variety of reasons. Because of the size of commercial trucks, the possibility of serious injury or death to drivers and passengers in automobiles is extremely high.
The most common causes of truck accidents are:
- Distracted driving
- Driver fatigue
- Poor road conditions
- Mechanical failure
- Tire blowouts
If you have been involved in a truck accident in Louisiana, it is important to talk to one of our personal injury lawyers as soon as possible to ensure all evidence is accounted for and while the memories of any witnesses are still fresh.
