It is a simple fact — if your car brakes are worn down or defective, your vehicle will not stop as effectively. Now think of a semi truck. We all know they take longer than a passenger car to come to a complete stop. If a tractor trailer’s brakes are not functioning properly, or if there has been improper maintenance, the results can prove disastrous.
If you have been seriously injured in a truck accident, how can you know if bad truck brakes were the cause? And why is it important to know exactly what caused the truck to collide with your vehicle? These are great questions, and ones that a Louisiana trucking accident lawyer at the Charbonnet Law Firm, LLC, can help you answer. We are the truck accident firm of choice for countless individuals who have been injured in New Orleans, Metairie and throughout Louisiana. Backed by more than 100 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys provide strategic legal representation aimed at obtaining results.
Our firm uses the expertise of the top accident scene reconstructionists to establish the cause of your trucking accident. These skilled professionals use a variety of scientific analysis to uncover the truth. One detail they will look at is the skid marks left by the semi truck at the scene of the accident. The length and direction of these tire marks can help determine if the brakes were functioning properly. By combining skid mark evidence with other details such as speeding, or the excessive weight of a truck, our legal team can build a solid claim.
