Skilled Injury Representation From Mississippi Truck Accident Attorneys
The threat of a truck accident is a grim reality all drivers must contend with as they travel the roads and highways of Mississippi and Tennessee. Due to the size and weight difference between semi trucks and standard passenger cars, collisions frequently result in catastrophic injuries or death for the occupants of the smaller vehicle.

Investigating The Truck Wreck And Determining Fault
Automobile accidents can occur for a wide variety of reasons, and fault isn’t always easy to determine. Truck accidents, however, can often be attributed to negligence on the part of the truck driver, the trucking company or a combination of the two. Here are some of the most common causes and contributing factors:
- Truck driver fatigue from too many hours spent behind the wheel
- Violations of trucking industry regulations
- Speeding and aggressive driving to meet unreasonable delivery deadlines
- Mechanical issues like worn-out brakes and bald tires, typically caused by inadequate vehicle inspection and maintenance
- Failure to adapt to changes in traffic and weather conditions
- Problems with cargo loads (unbalanced, too heavy, improperly secured, etc.)
- Negligence in hiring and training truck drivers
Trucking companies take out large commercial insurance policies. From experience, we know that insurance companies are very willing to fight truck accident claims because it is in their financial interest to do so. Therefore, they respond to accident scenes quickly and launch their own investigations (which are not definitely not impartial).
You won’t be able to respond that quickly, but you shouldn’t wait too long to seek help from an attorney. Our lawyers will begin investigating as soon as we are hired, and we work tirelessly to prove that the truck driver and/or trucking company were negligent.
Ready To Assist After Any Type Of Commercial Vehicle Accident
For most people, the term “truck accident” conjures images of a semi truck, also known as an 18-wheeler. While these types of truck accidents are common and deadly, they aren’t the only truck accident claims our firm handles. Our lawyers can represent you in a claim related to a wide variety of trucks, delivery vans and other commercial vehicles.
