Driving a semi-truck or a commercial vehicle is a massive responsibility. These vehicles are much different from the average four-wheel passenger car and, accordingly, the risks associated with them are equally severe. That’s one of the reasons why truck drivers are held to even stricter standards. There is a duty of care they must maintain when traveling, and if they fail to do so, they may be found negligent and responsible for any accidents that occur as a result.
Negligence leading to traffic accidents occurs all too frequently, especially for Mississippi. During 2016, almost a quarter of all traffic deaths in the state were the result of drunk driving.2 Another significant portion of injuries and death resulted from texting while driving, a form of distracted driving.
