Jackson Truck Accidents

Jackson, Mississippi is a major commercial corridor. 18-wheelers, carrying goods from all over the country, barrel down I-55, US 90, MS 475, MS 25, Van Winkle and MS 611. At any given time, many of these drivers are exhausted, distracted, under the influence of drugs, speeding or otherwise driving recklessly, putting your life in danger.

Morgan & Morgan is a renowned personal injury law firm in Jackson. We fight for the people against negligent drivers and corporations.

Our truck accident attorneys recognize that trucking corporations often pressure their drivers to speed or forgo sleep in order to make unrealistic delivery deadlines. They may also encourage illegal alteration of logbooks. Corporate employers may also turn a blind eye to the distractions of electronic devices. We hold these corporations accountable to you for your injuries.

Sleep-Deprived Commercial Drivers

The Federal Motor Carriers Safety Association (FMCSA) imposes strict hours of service (HOS) rules on tractor-trailer drivers and bus drivers, including:

  • Restrictions on hours of drive time
  • Restrictions on hours on duty
  • Mandatory rest breaks
  • Restrictions on hours worked in a workweek
  • Sleeper berth rules
  • Logbook entry provisions

Drivers who fail to abide by the HOS regulations face steep fines and license suspension. The driver’s employer also faces fines.

During the many decades we have litigated Jackson trucking accident cases, we have often encountered doctored logbooks. We’ve seen every trick in the book and can expose inconsistencies and inaccuracies in altered logs.

Distracted Commercial Drivers

Texting while driving is dangerous in any vehicle, but particularly so for drivers operating large, heavy trucks. Despite the risks, truck drivers often ignore FMCSA’s regulations that forbid commercial drivers from engaging in such distractions as:

  • Texting
  • Emailing
  • Instant messaging
  • Searching the Internet
  • Facebooking, Tweeting or participating in other social media
  • Moving out of a sitting position to reach for a phone
  • Talking on a handheld device

As part of our investigation, our lawyer's subpoena phone records and consider conduct, such as drifting across lanes or failing to brake, that indicates driver distraction.
