Truck accident victims and their families can find their lives forever changed. If you have been injured in a trucking accident in Biloxi, anywhere in the state of Mississippi, Louisiana, or the Gulf Coast, the experienced truck accident attorneys of Reeves & Mestayer are here to help you and your family hold the trucking company and other responsible parties accountable for the harm they have caused you.
Investigating Your Truck Accident
Truck accident cases are much more complex than cases involving only passenger vehicles and require experienced aggressive truck accident lawyers such as those at Reeves & Mestayer to ensure a full recovery. State and federal trucking regulations play a large role in truck accident cases. Much of the evidence that we use comes from the extensive records that truck drivers and trucking companies are required to keep to prove compliance with these complex laws.
We will also investigate to determine if a defective truck or defective roadway played a role in your accident. Only through a thorough investigation can we find all of the underlying causes of your accident and injuries so that we can hold all of the responsible parties accountable and pursue all avenues of compensation that are available to you.
Trucking Accident Responsibility
In accidents where the truck driver was at fault, the trucking company or another company responsible for hiring the driver is typically held responsible for the accident. Trucking companies must follow strict hiring and monitoring practices. They also have a duty to maintain and repair their trucks, and keep extensive maintenance records. Responsible parties in a trucking accident can include one or more of the following:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Freight shipper
- Freight broker
- Third party logistics provider (3PL)
- Truck, parts, or equipment manufacturer
- Truck, parts or equipment seller
- Contractor responsible for repairs and maintenance
- Weigh station personnel
- Government department or agency responsible for design, construction, and/or maintenance of defective roadway
- Another driver
