18-Wheeler Accident Attorney
in Hazlehurst MS
The only thing worse than being hit by another car is being hit by an 18-wheeler or other commercial vehicle. Because of their size relative to that of a passenger vehicle, the likelihood for serious injuries and death is significantly greater. Still, we are forced to share roads and highways with these towering vehicles, some of which are driven by drivers who either were not properly trained, have not gotten adequate rest, or who choose to drive impaired.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, nearly 5,000 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes in 2017. In fact, the number of fatalities increased by 42 percent from 2009.
Because these are commercial vehicles, their corporate attorneys are always on the alert, experienced at fighting for the interests of their clients, with the ultimate goal of paying crash victims the least amount possible. That’s why you need to retain a team of attorneys who can go toe to toe with the big guys. We are that team. We are committed to aggressively fighting for your rights to get what you are owed, never bowing down to pressure at the hands of big corporations. We will not be intimidated, nor will we allow you to be.
