Long Term Disability / Life /
Accidental Death / ERISA

Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.

Louisiana State Truck Regulation Laws

The State of Louisiana has several regulations for trucks and truck drivers. These include oversize and overweight permit rules and regulations as well as regulations concerning the commercial driver’s license (CDL) which is required for truck drivers.

A Louisiana truck accident may be caused by the weight of the load being carried in the trailer, or because a shift in the hauling compartment has occurred. When this occurs, it is important to know if the truck was considered overweight.

Client Testimonials

Our Testimonials

Louisiana state law is clear on the weight limits allowed for commercial trucks. For this reason, truck drivers are required to stop at weigh stations along their routes to have their loads weighed. The weight is recorded, and violators are usually cited at the weigh station.

If a truck crash in Louisiana occurs because of an overweight load incident, a Louisiana truck accident attorney can help obtain information regarding the weight of the load and if the load was secured properly leading up to your truck accident. When you file a Louisiana truck accident claim, that information can be used to help build your case.


Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

Louisiana’s State Law Concerning Commercial Driver’s Licenses

A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is different from an ordinary driver’s license. Truck drivers are required to have a CDL before they can legally operate a commercial truck.

CDLs can be suspended for traffic violations, just like a regular driver’s license. Suspension of a CDL can be for as little as 60 days or as long as a lifetime. The length of suspension time depends on the violation and other factors in the case.

If it turns out that the truck driver involved in your accident was driving on a suspended CDL or did not even have a CDL to begin with, your Louisiana truck accident attorney can use this information to prove liability in your truck accident claim.

If you are involved in an accident involving a commercial truck that was either overweight or in which the driver’s CDL license was suspended, a Louisiana truck accident attorney can help. A phone call is all it takes to get started!

Contacting a Louisiana Truck Accident Attorney

After a serious truck accident, while you are dealing with injuries, medical bills, car repairs, and insurance companies, it’s important to have someone working on your side.

Speaking with an experienced Louisiana truck accident attorney after a truck accident can help you understand your legal rights and options, and if necessary, help you file a personal injury lawsuit to help you recover compensation for your losses.
