Sugar Cane Truck Accident Representation

New Iberia and its surrounding communities are a hub for sugar cane activity. In the southwest Louisiana region, sugar cane trucks are a common cause of truck accidents. Often they are not properly lit or they are not properly marked with reflectors making them difficult to see. Because the sugar cane is harvested in the cane fields, the harvesting environment is often muddy causing the roads to become slick with mud and potentially creating a hazardous condition for other motorists.

Our firm has the experience to understand the regulations, identify when truckers and trucking companies do not comply with the regulations and hold truckers and trucking companies accountable for their negligence.
