Mississippi Traffic Accidents

Semi-truck collisions are some of the most devastating and fatal collisions that occur on the roadways in Mississippi and across the United States. On average, tens of thousands of collisions end up occurring each year that involve semis. A portion of these end up causing severe injuries or even ending the lives of the people involved. These crashes are often caused by the actions of drivers who are distracted, intoxicated, fatigued, or speeding. Though truck drivers are trained and expected to stay awake, alert, aware, and sober while operating their vehicles, they sometimes end up acting negligently and causing accidents.

Operating a semi-truck is a full-time job that can be exhausting. Truck drivers often work long, grueling hours that force them to stay awake for stretches of time that the average person would not be able to endure. This is due to the fact that trucking companies often give their drivers strict demands and deadlines that need to be met in order for them to stay employed – which can result in unhealthy and unsafe driving conditions and habits.
