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.

Sugar Cane Truck Accidents in Louisiana: Experienced Personal Injury Representation
J. Quentin Simon has significant knowledge of truck accident laws in Louisiana. Many of these laws apply specifically to sugar cane trucks. These trucks come directly off the sugar cane fields, pull onto the road at very slow speeds and drop mud and cane debris on the road. These actions result in highly-hazardous conditions such as the following:

  • Mud and cane debris that fall from the sugar cane trucks can be slippery, causing a dangerous road condition for other drivers.
  • Sugar cane trucks are often not properly lit or not properly marked with reflectors. This makes the trucks extremely difficult to see.
  • Sugar cane trucks pull onto the roadways at slow speeds. When a motorist who is driving the posted speed limit approaches a slow moving sugar cane truck that is not properly lit, several types of accidents can occur. For example, the motorist may need to brake suddenly and may not be able to stop in a timely manner because of the slippery road conditions caused by the mud and cane debris.
Our firm recognizes that many safety measures go overlooked by sugar cane truck companies and drivers. Louisiana statutes state that sugar cane truckers and companies must keep the road clear of any fallen mud or cane debris. They must also abide by all federal and state trucking regulations regarding speed, driving hours, maintaining their trucks and properly securing their loads.
