Causes of Truck Accidents in Mississippi
Truck accidents are one of the most serious traffic collisions because they cause some of the most devastating results. Collisions involving any type of large vehicle can result in catastrophic injuries, including brain or spinal cord injuries.
A few common causes of truck accidents in Mississippi include:
- Trucking law violations
- Driver fatigue
- Drunk driving
- Overloaded cargo
- Distracted driver
- Lack of maintenance
- Federal trucking standards violations
At Vollor Law Firm, P.A., we work to hold the responsible party accountable. No matter the cause of the accident, you can rely on us to thoroughly examine your case and build a plan to seek compensation.
Do Semi Truck Accidents Go to Trial?
The answer to this question is dependent on how negotiations go during the settlement period of your claim. If the trucking company cooperates with your demands and agrees to compensate you fairly, there will be no need to go to trial. However, if the responsible party refuses to offer fair compensation, you and your lawyer may choose to take your case to trial.
This generally happens with truck accidents that are particularly complicated or where the effects of the accident may require an especially large settlement to cover the damages. You can rely on our injury lawyers to do whatever is best for you and your case.
Commercial Truck Accidents Can Be Devastating
According to a study done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) over 4,000 people were killed in large truck crashes throughout the United States in 2018:
- 16% of fatalities were truck occupants
- 67% of fatalities were passenger vehicle occupants
- 15% were pedestrians, cyclists or motorcyclists
