18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers in Jackson
Relentlessly Protecting Your Rights & Fighting for Your Best Interests
Tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, semis, and other trucks are vastly larger and heavier than other vehicles on Mississippi highways. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh more than 80,000 pounds, compared to 3,000 pounds for the average car. When negligent actions by truck drivers and trucking companies lead to accidents, the consequences can be catastrophic, resulting in serious injuries and even death. It is not uncommon for medical bills to average $200,000 or more for the victims in these types of accidents.
At the law firm of Williams Newman Williams, our Jackson 18-wheeler accident lawyers believe that all negligent actors should be held accountable for truck accidents. We use facts and the law to recover compensation from drivers, employers, and insurance companies for life-changing and, in some cases, life-ending mistakes. When a truck accident or collision seriously injures you or claims the life of a loved one, you should retain a skilled truck accident lawyer to fight for the fair and full compensation you deserve.
We Handle All Truck-Related Injury Claims
Our attorneys are committed to holding truck drivers and their employees to a high standard when it comes to sharing our nation's roadways.
We handle all types of injury claims that arise in truck accident cases, including:
- Brain damage and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Lumbar spine (lower back) injury
- Cervical spine (neck) injury
- Closed head injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Herniated disks
- Severe burns
Tragically, some injuries that are sustained in truck accidents will prove to be fatal. In these cases, we can help family members pursue a wrongful death claim against the negligent parties. We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for your loss. However, we can send a message that reckless actions will not be tolerated. In every case, our legal team will bring proven legal skills, aggressive advocacy, and utmost compassion to the hard work we perform for you.
We Thoroughly Investigate the Accident to Hold All Parties Accountable
It can be easy to lay all of the blame for an auto accident at the feet of the truck driver. However, other parties may be just as much, if not more, culpable than the person behind the wheel. Our lawyers can conduct a thorough investigation into every aspect of the accident, including the amount of driving training, whether there was evidence of drug or alcohol use, whether the trucking log accurately reflects the amount of hours actually driven, whether the vehicle was properly maintained, and whether an oversized load may have contributed to the accident.
We work closely with accident reconstructionists to help paint a full picture of the truth. As your representative, we will explore every avenue to help you win your case, and to help you recover the full and fair compensation you deserve. We do all of this on a contingency fee basis, which means you will not owe us any attorney's fees unless we successfully collect for you.
