Truck Driver Negligence
Baton Rouge Truck Driver Negligence Attorney
Louisiana Truck Driver Fatigue Lawyer
Bohrer Brady LLC, in Baton Rouge, represents people injured by the negligence or recklessness of other people or companies. It is tragic that so many people are injured in otherwise avoidable accidents, such as car and truck crashes. We are pleased to be able to bring justice in the form of monetary compensation to accident victims. This allows them to pay medical bills and better cope with resulting injuries.
Truck driver negligence is to blame for many of these accidents. A loaded 18-wheeler weighs many tons. Rolling along varied terrain, sometimes at high speeds, it is a deadly weapon. Driving these enormous vehicles requires special licensing and training, and is a serious responsibility.
The mistakes truck drivers routinely make include:
- Excessive speed
- Lacking rest/fatigue
- Failing to look while changing lanes
- Texting while driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
An immediate investigation is essential in any truck accident case. Our firm will secure evidence, take photographs, interview witnesses, and attempt to determine the cause of the semi wreck. We do not want to alarm drivers, but instances of stunning truck driver negligence and irresponsibility have appeared in our courts and the news with increasing regularity. These include instances of texting, fatigue, lack of sleep, drug use and other distractions.
