Common Causes of New Orleans Car and Truck Accidents

There are more than 1,300 semi-truck accidents every day across the United States. These crashes are often caused by truck drivers who are overworked and overtired. Truckers may not be familiar with local speed limits or they may overlook traffic signals. Passenger car drivers may have contributed to the accident by:

  • Playing "cat and mouse" with truck drivers
  • Ignoring speed limits
  • Failing to signal a lane change
  • Driving drunk or impaired
  • Texting while driving

Whatever the reason for the accident, you need an experienced car and truck accident attorney to represent your interests.
