As readers of this blog may have seen, previous postings have discussed the dangerous nature of accidents that involve commercial motor vehicles, such as 18-wheelers. In many of these postings, the individuals that suffer serious injuries are those in the smaller vehicles. However, that is not always the case, as was proven by a recent 18-wheeler accident that occurred near Baton Rouge, which left two people fatally injured.
As individuals that live across the state of Louisiana are aware, transportation is vital to our way of life. Individuals commute for work, to school, to social function, and for fun. However, not all vehicles are created equal. Semi-trucks dwarf cars and motorcycles, and pedestrians on bikes are no match for a motor vehicle. These size differences can wreak havoc when an accident occurs, leaving individuals injured.
When it comes to incidents on the roadways, many of them are very unexpected and shocking. They can involve numerous vehicles and even massive trucks making large shipments across the country. This could mean a dangerous and huge accident site along with serious injuries and severe damage.
