Mississippi Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck Accidents in Mississippi

Truck accidents involving big rigs, also known as 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers, can have catastrophic consequences in terms of personal injury and property damage. Typically, these 18-wheeler commercial semi-trucks are loaded with cargo and can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. In comparison, the average car weighs about 5,000 pounds.

Additionally, semi-truck engines are up to six times larger in weight and size than average car engines. These huge machines are designed to carry and transport large amounts of cargo but are not designed to stop quickly, turn sharply, or handle poor weather conditions. These factors have the potential to create great damage or injury.

Mississippi highways serve as the primary roads on which truck drivers commute and travel. Commercial truckers drive these highways at dangerous speeds, trying to cover more miles in a shorter amount of time in order to earn a greater salary. Unfortunately, in their attempt to deliver more cargo for more money, truck drivers often exhibit some of the most negligent driving habits of all motor vehicle drivers.

Did a negligent trucker cause your accident?

I proudly serve Mississippi residents by handling their car accident and truck accident claims while drawing from my more than 20 years of legal experience. I believe that Mississippi drivers have the right to safe roads and that negligent truck drivers should be held accountable for not adhering to trucking laws and federal regulations regarding safe driving practices and truck maintenance.

Negligence on the part of truckers can include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Inattention to road conditions and other drivers
  • Intoxication
  • Failure to secure a load properly
  • Failure to perform necessary truck maintenance

Trucker negligence creates dangerous conditions and endangers the lives of other drivers. As a result, smaller vehicles do not stand a chance against these huge machines in an accident, and serious life-threatening injury or even wrongful death can occur.

Retaining an experienced Mississippi personal injury attorney from my firm can help ensure that trucking companies and insurance companies are held accountable. I can help you recover compensation for your injuries, property damage, or wrongful death of a loved one. I also can ensure that your right to safe roads and highways in Mississippi is protected.
