CAUSES OF TRUCK ACCIDENTS IN THE STATE OF LOUISIANA

Many truck accidents are caused by negligent or reckless driving behaviors, such as:

  • Driving while distracted by texting, eating, or a phone conversation
  • Driving over the speed limit or too fast for weather conditions
  • Disregarding the Hours of Service regulations for truck drivers, resulting
    in fatigued driving or falling asleep behind the wheel
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded vehicles
  • Aggressive driving including unsafe lane changes and tailgating
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs and / or alcohol

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations require companies and drivers involved in commercial trucking to exercise safe practices that protect others on the road. When these stipulations aren’t met, the results can be deadly.

Drivers of smaller vehicles — which usually weigh around 3,000 pounds — are put in grave danger by big rigs, which often weigh 80,000 pounds, when truck drivers are unprofessional or reckless.
