WEST FELICIANA PARISH TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
People who are hurt in a truck accident in Louisiana can and should demand accountability from the trucking company if the company and/or its driver is at fault for the collision. This is typically done by hiring an attorney who will build a case and file a lawsuit against the company. Many cases never go to court because a settlement is reached between your attorney and the trucking company.

Commercial vehicle accidents can result from a variety of factors, including the carelessness and recklessness of drivers. Some causes of commercial vehicle accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Mechanical Defect: This may include defective electrical systems, wheels and tires, brake systems, repair and upkeep neglect.
- Human Error: Drivers are required to operate commercial vehicles with 100% of their ability at all times. Issues like intoxication, sleep deprivation and inadequate training often result in commercial vehicle accidents.
- Environmental Issues: Road maintenance as well as upkeep and design can also be factors in a commercial vehicle accident. If this is the case, the government may also be liable.
Liability issues can be evaluated and determined by an experienced attorney, but vehicle manufacturers, distributors, retailers, governmental entities and drivers are all parties that may be held liable for commercial vehicle accidents.
