For years, the public have equated the open road as a symbol of freedom and independence. Yet with the increase of register commercial and industrial trucks traveling along the highways of Louisiana, the experience of riding upon the asphalt of the highways in one´s vehicle has become a dreadful experience for many. Due to the immense size and weight of these vehicles, nearly 37 percent of these truck accidents result in injuries and over a hundred deaths. In almost in every case, it is the driver and the passengers of the regular cars that sustain the most damage from these types of collisions, while the driver of the truck will often walk away from the scene without any serious injuries. Common injuries from a truck accident include spinal injury, back and neck, head trauma, multiple fractures, and even loss of limbs. This is why it is important for those who were involved in a tractor trailer collision to secure their financial future by contacting an attorney since they may be out of work indefinitely and require extensive medical treatment and therapy.
