Mississippi Semi-Truck Wrecks
It was reported that nearly 4,000 people were killed in semi-truck accidents across the United States in 2015. Overwhelmingly, the victims of fatal semi-collisions are occupants of passenger vehicles, accounting for 69% of these deaths. These statistics are alarming, but they help show the danger posed by large commercial vehicles.
These collisions can result in significant damages for the injured party. Astronomical medical costs, time off from work, and intense pain and suffering are all just the beginning. Victims should protect their legal rights after a crash with an 18-wheeler.
