Most common causes of commercial vehicle accidents

Louisiana residents may be curious about the repercussions of large truck collisions. Commercial trucks may pose unique threats to smaller-sized vehicles during an accident. Truck drivers should be extremely cautious while on the road, and other vehicle drivers should be aware that not using extra caution when driving near a large truck could lead to a collision.
