Holding Trucking Companies Accountable For Their Negligent Actions

Trucking companies and commercial drivers are held to a higher standard than the average motorist. It is not uncommon, however, for safety measures to be ignored, which ultimately puts other drivers at risk for serious injury.

If you or a loved one was injured in a truck or commercial vehicle accident, it is wise to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury attorney. At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC we have extensive experience representing injured individuals in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana. Look to our firm to fight for your fair compensation for lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Various Factors Can Lead to Catastrophic Accidents

Truck accidents can be tied to numerous factors, including:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Unbalanced loads
  • Speeding or reckless driving

Additionally, there are several steps that the trucking company itself can potentially miss that might lead to a dangerous driver, including:

  • Failure to perform a background check
  • Failure to properly train a driver
  • Failure to ensure the operation of the truck’s safety equipment
  • A poorly maintained truck inspection checklist
  • Failure to ensure that the driver is following applicable “stop and rest” regulations

Following a truck accident, it is crucial that you schedule a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.

Trucking Companies Work Closely with Insurance Adjusters

As soon as possible, trucking companies will have their lawyers and insurance carrier representatives on the scene of an accident. Most often, the insurance adjuster will attempt to convince an injured driver to sign a settlement before the full extent of an injury is known. If you or a loved one was a victim of trucking company negligence, we strongly encourage you to contact an attorney before signing any documents.
