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 Truck Duty Status

If you’ve ever been in a Louisiana truck accident, you know how bad they can be. The damages (both to your vehicle and your person) can be much worse than what you’d suffer in a car accident. You also have to deal with the high cost of the resulting medical bills and other accident-related expenses.

In this situation, you have every right to be angry. You also have the right to file a Louisiana truck accident lawsuit against the truck driver responsible for the accident. In the end, this is only fair; there’s no reason that you should have to pay such a high cost for another person’s negligence.


We answer any questions
you have FREE OF CHARGE.

After spending years representing insurance companies, we don’t guess. We know their playbook and how they work behind the scenes. Using that knowledge, we’ve developed our own Clear Advantage Process for fighting claims.

It’s personally satisfying to use what I’ve learned as an insurance company insider, now for the good — helping families reverse unfair denials of insurance benefits they paid for, need and deserve.

The Record of Duty Status in a Louisiana Truck Accident Lawsuit

All commercial truck drivers are legally required to keep records of his or her activities on the job. This goes beyond the drivers, as the employers (truck companies) are also legally obligated to have their drivers keep such records.

Each record covers a 24-hour period, and contains important information regarding the driver’s activities. In addition to tracking the driver’s on or off-duty status, the records must also include:

  • The day’s date, as well as the time that work started for the day
  • The number of the tractor/trailer
  • The name of the employer
  • Information regarding the cargo
  • The number of miles driven that day
  • The co-driver’s name (if applicable)
  • The address of the main office
  • The driver’s signature


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

The truck driver is required to arrange this information legibly and in proper format. In addition to this, the driver must send this information to his or her employer no more than 13 days after completing it.

If the truck driver does not keep records of this information, or fails to send it, he or she may be legally liable, especially in the case of a Louisiana truck accident.

Trucking companies need to be aware of their employee’s actions on the job. Records of duty help them to do this, which is why they are required. A driver’s failure to keep his or her employer informed may be indicative of a deeper problem (like substance abuse or exhaustion) that makes them unfit to drive.

Also, if the truck driver was working beyond his or her allotted number of hours, and got into a Louisiana truck accident, this could indicate a serious breach of duty. The allotted hours are put in place to prevent drivers from becoming exhausted, which could lead to a serious or fatal truck accident.

As such, if you were hurt in a Louisiana truck accident, the driver’s maintenance (or lack thereof) on his or her record of duty could be a very important factor. The liability may extend beyond the driver, and to his or her employer.

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