Mississippi Truck Accident Lawyers

Trucks are consistently involved in a higher proportion of fatal crashes than passenger vehicles, yet only represent 4% of registered vehicles. Dangerous road conditions, defective truck equipment, and texting truck drivers have all been causes of these fatal accidents, but there are innumerable contributing factors that could have been involved. Regardless, if you have been injured in such an accident, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Current laws limit the time trucking companies must keep records, so do not delay in filing your claim.

Determine the Cause of Mississippi Truck Accidents

Don't wait to talk to a lawyer if you or someone you love has been injured in a collision with a big rig in Mississippi. It is easy to assume the truck driver is at fault, but accidents involving large trucks are often more complicated. This is because, as explained above, large truck accidents often have multiple contributing factors. From the driver to the manufacturer to the trucking company, all parties have responsibilities in making sure the truck is running properly. For example, the trucking company may be at fault for hiring a driver who failed a drug or alcohol test.
