Working to Defend Our Clients’ Rights
Have you or someone you care about been involved and injured in a trucking accident? When you share the road with large trucks, you have no idea whether they are carrying cargo and might even feel wary driving next to them, as they wobble along. Commercial truck drivers do have specific laws and regulations they are expected to follow in order to maintain their safety and the safety of those around them.
Truck accident cases are not the same as car wreck cases. There are federal regulations regarding how much weight the trucks can carry, how many straight hours the truck drivers are allowed to drive in a day, what kinds of safety inspections the tractor-trailers must pass, the driver’s logs they must maintain, and so on. Your attorney must be familiar with all applicable laws and regulations. At the Harris Law Firm, we know the federal trucking laws and the state rules of the road in both Mississippi and Arkansas. We will relentlessly prosecute each case and we will not stop until the perpetrators of negligent and reckless tractor-trailer accidents are brought to justice.
If you believe that a truck driver or their equipment were at fault for the accident, you will need to hire a Greenville truck accident attorney to represent you and work to recover compensation on your behalf. At Harris Law Firm, PLLC, we are here to help you get through this difficult time.
