Stephen Rue Attorney Awards

Commercial Vehicle and Truck Accident Attorney In New Orleans

When commercial trucks collide with smaller vehicles, the smaller vehicle usually sustains the heavier damage. This is because 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles have a significantly greater mass than almost anything else on the road. A semi-trailer or tractor-trailer, when fully loaded, can easily weigh 10 or 15 times more than a passenger car. As a result, any person who is in a car, on a motorcycle or bicycle, or in the path of a commercial truck can be severely injured or killed in a collision. In the event of an injury, consult our truck accident attorney for a free case review.
