Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Commercial drivers represent a threat to other motorists. Their vehicles are huge, they drive like they own the road, they tend be in a hurry, and they may be fatigued or distracted after driving all day.

The Maggio Law Firm, PC, provides aggressive personal injury representation to people injured in commercial vehicle accidents. We hold drivers and their employers accountable for the serious physical, financial and emotional harm that result when a car and truck collide.

Our small, family-friendly firm has obtained notable results in cases throughout the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and Alabama, including Gulfport, Biloxi, Pascagoula and Mobile. Contact us today for compassionate and attentive legal service.

Commercial Liability In Mississippi Auto Accidents

On the freeways and highways or on city streets and parking lots, you can't drive far without seeing a truck. Unfortunately, they don't always see you or yield the right of way. Gulfport trial lawyer Stephen Maggio handles commercial vehicle accidents involving:

  • Over-the-road 18-wheelers
  • Package trucks and delivery vans
  • Freight trucks and moving vans
  • Utility trucks and garbage trucks
  • Construction vehicles
  • Taxis and limousines
  • Pizza delivery cars
  • Sales representatives

One of our largest recoveries ever was a commercial vehicle case that seemed at first like any car accident. Our investigation revealed that the SUV driver who crashed into our client was a cement company supervisor driving his SUV from job site to job site. Attorney Stephen Maggio was able to obtain more than $1 million for our clients through the company's commercial liability policy.

Holding Companies Accountable For Truck Accidents

Commercial vehicle accidents commonly cause severe injuries. We have the access to experts who can help us prove negligence of the commercial driver, employee or third party in order to maximize compensation. We move swiftly to preserve important evidence, and we ask the right questions to establish liability. Did the driver have the right experience, training and qualifications, such as a valid commercial driver's license (CDL)? Did the company check the driving history and criminal background? Was the truck properly maintained and recently inspected? Was the driver fatigued or intoxicated?
