Holding a Careless Refrigerator Truck Accident Driver or Company Liable
18-Wheeler Collisions, Crashes, & More
Large trucks are common in Louisiana. With the numerous highways and interstates that cut through the state, there is always a chance that you’ll spot a trucker during your daily commute. Although commercial vehicles may differ in size, cargo, and purpose, they all present a great danger to fellow commuters if not operated safely.
Refrigerator trucks are those that carry perishable goods from one location to the next. They often deliver to grocery markets, restaurants, and butcher shops alike. Like many other truckers, these delivery drivers operate on strict timelines and risk losing money with the smallest mishap. With this in mind, many truckers will do everything in their power to ensure on-time delivery, even if that means driving longer than legally allowed without rest, or speeding. When such unsafe behavior results in you sustaining a truck accident injury, contact a Louisiana refrigerator truck accident attorney who can make you aware of your legal options.
How Truck Accidents Are Different From Car Accidents
One of the harsh realities of truck-to-car accidents is that the driver of the passenger vehicle is likely to sustain a severe injury. The reason being is that the sheer size of a fully loaded truck can easily triple the weight of a traditional vehicle. Some of the most common truck accident injuries include:
- Crushed appendages
- Punctured organs
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Facial injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
What many people fail to realize is that dealing with a large truck accident is nothing like passenger vehicle accidents. The most considerable difference is that rather than speaking directly to the other party and negotiating compensation, you must go through the trucking company which often has a legal team that’ll fight to ensure they pay as little as possible for your damages. Combat this force with the help of an attorney who has experience taking on trucking insurance companies and securing accurate compensation.
