Trucking Accidents in Mississippi
Large trucks are capable of inflicting serious injuries in the event of a crash. An estimated 5,000 people are killed annually in trucking collisions each year across the United States, and nearly 96% of those killed in trucking accidents are the occupants of passenger cars. An estimated 90% of trucking accidents are caused by human error. Since 2009, fatal trucking accidents have increased by nearly 52%.
Accidents involving large trucks are much different than typical vehicle collisions. They involve multiple parties and the resulting injuries can be life-changing for victims. These large commercial vehicles are massive and capable of inflicting devastating injuries and other damages in the event of a trucking accident in Mississippi, especially for those traveling in smaller passenger cars. Not only that, but you are dealing with a trucking company that may have acted recklessly, contributing to your accident, and these large companies often have experienced legal teams fighting to make sure that they pay as little as possible.
