Louisiana 18 Wheeler Accident Attorney
One of the most catastrophic and life-threatening injuries are caused by 18-wheeler trucks. Due to the large size of these motor vehicles the impact can be deadly. Drivers of 18 wheeler trucks are usually forced by their employers to drive around-the-clock without sleep for 24 hours or more in order to get to their destination on time. This normally results in drivers becoming severely fatigue, driving recklessly, or driving at extravagant speeds. Accidents that are caused by 18 wheeler trucks often lead to devastating consequences such as serious injuries, disability, and even death.
