contextualTruckWrecksTruck accidents can leave people hurt and facing an uncertain future, all in a matter of seconds. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a truck wreck as a result of negligence, it is important to know your rights, including your right to financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering.

Truck Accidents are Not Like Car Accidents

A good car accident lawyer may be completely unqualified to handle a big truck wreck. Why? The application of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and the wealth of information available from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Mississippi Department of Transportation make experience in this field even more of a must. And trucking firms fight you hard. We mean HARD.
