Special Considerations of Truck Accidents
Drivers of commercial vehicles are subject to special driving regulations, such as number of hours driven in a 24-hour period. We will investigate your accident by examining driver logs and finding out if the company did required vehicle maintenance and safety inspections.
In addition, we will handle the trucking company’s insurance carrier. They will have an accident response team on the scene within a matter of hours. To minimize their risk and cost, they will look for a way to make the accident your fault. We know how to counteract their tactics.
We represent people involved in accidents with any large commercial vehicle, including:
- Semis (tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers)
- Garbage trucks
- Delivery trucks
Usually, a semi accident causes very serious injuries, such as brain and spinal injuries, burns, amputations, and neck and back injuries. These injuries may cause disability or wrongful death. People who suffer catastrophic or disabling injuries will need long-term medical care, often from specialists. The bills will be significant. They may also need compensation for lost income, monthly expenses and additional costs.
Our attorneys fight hard against the trucking company and its insurance carrier. When an accident is their fault, we will make them pay. Please call our office at 228-392-3799 to schedule an appointment with a Biloxi truck accident attorney.
