Trucking Accidents

Trucking Accidents Attorneys with the Experience to Deliver Results for You

Among the most dangerous accidents are those involving tractor-trailers (18-wheelers) on the highways. Because Baton Rouge is located along I-10/I-12 and Highway 190, drivers in the area are at a high risk of accidents involving 18-wheelers. The size difference between an 18-wheeler and a car makes the driver of the car far more susceptible to major injuries. While the primary causes of truck accidents are speed and fatigue, several other factors may play a role. These may including driver error, faulty equipment, and violation of safety regulations.

If you or someone you know was involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, you should consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible. deGravelles & Palmintier will investigate these collisions carefully and thoroughly.  We are familiar with federal regulations that require trucking companies to keep certain records regarding equipment safety and driver’s operating hours and also have access to accident reconstruction and safety experts that can help us get results for you.
