There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

Driving With 18 Wheelers in Traffic Puts You at Risk

New Orleans car accident lawyer

Like most working citizens, you probably drive to and from work on a daily basis without much thought. Many drivers fail to realize just how dangerous the roadways in their area can be until they are involved in an accident. If you are like most motorists, one of your worst fears is being hit by an 18 wheeler.

Each year, thousands of motorists find themselves on the receiving of an 18 wheeler accident. Consulting with a New Orleans injury attorney is the best way to find out what type of compensation you are owed for your injuries. Whether you’ve never been in an accident or have unfortunately fallen victim to one, it’s worth it to learn more about 18 wheeler safety. Driving alongside 18 wheelers can be pretty dangerous and here are some of the reasons why.

They Are Much Bigger Than Your Car

The main reason an 18 wheeler accident creates so much damage is due to its sheer force and weight. Generally, an 18 wheeler weighs nearly 40,000 lbs. The typical car weighs around 10,000 lbs, which is why a collision with an 18 wheeler can be so devastating. If you find yourself on the losing end of one of these accidents, you may want to make an important call you need to a New Orleans car accident lawyer.

18 Wheelers are Extremely Hard to Maneuver

In order for a person to drive an 18 wheeler safely, they will have to undergo extensive training. During this training, a prospective truck driver will learn how to properly maneuver their big rig. When a trailer is attached to an 18 wheeler, it can be very hard to turn or back it up without a lot of hard work. If the truck driver is not properly plotting out their turns, they can slam into a motorist and cause a lot of damage in the process.

You need to keep your eyes peeled when you see a semi-truck trying to turn. Allowing them plenty of room to maneuver their rig can help to prevent problems and accidents. Many of the accidents a New Orleans injury attorney will encounter are due to improper operation of an 18 wheeler.

What if Maintenance Hasn’t Been Done Properly?

The next factor that can make an 18 wheeler dangerous is a lack of maintenance. A semi-truck has a number of components and each of them will have to be maintained over time. If the owner/operator of the 18 wheeler has neglected to properly maintain their diesel, it is only a matter of time before an accident occurs.

Driving on worn out braking components can lead to a lack of stopping power. Having proper maintenance performed on a semi-truck can help to reduce the danger these machines pose. A New Orleans car accident lawyer will help you to figure out what caused your 18 wheeler collision and whether or not you can get paid for any sustained injuries.
