In 2010, the state of Louisiana received $28,990,744 in overall highway safety grant funding according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) National Center. Despite this large number, Louisiana suffers an average of 108 fatalities a year from commercial truck accidents. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a truck accident, it is time to seek professional legal help to guarantee that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck drivers are involved in a disproportionately high number of serious and fatal accidents compared to the total number of these vehicles on the highway. A truck driver may simply be driving too fast or a truck driver may be distracted by looking at a GPS navigation system. Whatever it may be, it is far too easy for a truck driver to cause a serious accident. Louisiana truck accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin are here to help you fight for the monetary compensation that you deserve.
