If you or someone you know has been involved in a commercial truck accident resulting in death or serious injury, contact The Norris Law Group today.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, about 1 in 10 highway deaths occur in a crash involving a large truck. Large trucks often weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger vehicles.
In the Shreveport - Bossier area, and Northwest Louisiana, streets and interstates are an essential part of our everyday life. As a result, we encounter commercial vehicles, such as trucks, 18 wheelers, and delivery vans, on a routine basis. These large trucks can weigh more than 10,000 pounds.
Commercial truck drivers travel more miles than passenger vehicle drivers. Commercial truck drivers are permitted to be behind the wheel for as long as 11 hours a stretch, under federal hours-of-service regulations, and up to 77 hours over a 7 day period. Long hours can result in sleep deprivation.
The U.S. Department of Transportation agencies set standards and oversee safety of commercial vehicles - roadside inspections, hours of service, and vehicle maintenance and inspections. Despite federal regulations that are intended to ensure safety, other factors beyond your control can affect whether you safely arrive to your destination. For example, driver fatigue, logbook violations, failure to follow protocol, brake defects, steering defects, defective equipment, wet or slippery roads, lack of driver experience and distracted driving.
