Trucking Accidents in Mississippi
In addition to the unavoidable hazards all drivers face and the general dangers of the open road, when these are coupled with the overall difficulty and demands of operating an 18-wheeler there are some industry practices followed by the commercial trucking industry that greatly increase the chances of a serious accident occurring.
For example, trucking companies routinely emphasize the importance of quick delivery and deemphasize the importance of a safe one. This often leads to truck operators relying on dangerous driving practices in order to meet their delivery deadlines.
