Much of Louisiana commerce still depends on truck drivers to safely get items to their destination. When truck drivers fall asleep or become distracted by texting and driving, Louisiana residents can get injured. In some cases those injuries lead to death.
When people are injured in a truck accident, their injuries are often so serious that they require long hospital stays, surgery and rehabilitative care. The injured may be unable to work for months, or even be rendered permanently disabled. When the individual is the head of household, the loss of income can be financially devastating for the family. When any one of these situations occur, it may be time to seek legal counsel.
