What Happens After a Large Truck Accident?
After a large truck accident, several things are likely to happen. First, you will likely need immediate medical attention. You may be transported to an emergency room or hospital, but in any case, you should always see a medical professional after a truck accident.
Second, the trucking company and/or its insurance provider will almost certainly contact you very soon after the crash—sometimes in a matter of hours. These companies act fast when it comes to investigating truck accidents and will often try to get victims to agree to settlements right away. However, it is in your best interests to avoid speaking to the trucking company or its insurance adjusters after the accident. Never accept a settlement or sign anything provided to you by the insurance company without first speaking to a lawyer.
If you accept a settlement, you forfeit your right to seek further compensation in the future. However, in the immediate aftermath of the accident, the full extent of your injuries may not be clear. You could even be told that your injuries are not that serious, only to experience numerous complications down the line. If you’ve already agreed to a settlement, however, you won’t be able to collect any more compensation for future medical expenses, lost income, or pain and suffering.
The best thing you can do to protect yourself after a truck accident is to contact an attorney who can help you with your case. At Mike Slocumb Law Firm, our Gulfport truck accident lawyers are ready to immediately step in and handle all communication with the insurance company on your behalf. We know the tactics these companies use to try to dispute, devalue, or deny claims—and we know how to fight back.

Proving Liability After a Truck Accident in Mississippi
Proving liability after a truck accident is one of the most important—and most complicated—aspects of your claim.
Depending on the specific details and facts of your case, any of the following parties could be partly or entirely responsible for the accident:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company/truck driver’s employer
- A manufacturer of a defective truck or truck part
- The party responsible for loading the truck’s cargo
- An entity responsible for truck inspections, maintenance, and/or repairs
- An engineer or construction company that designed or built a defective roadway
- The municipal entity responsible for routine highway or road maintenance and/or repairs
This is not an exhaustive list; other parties—such as negligent third-party motorists—could share some of the blame. You might even be found partly at fault for the accident. While this does not bar you from filing a personal injury claim, it could affect your recovery.
It is extremely important that you work with an experienced legal team that knows how to properly investigate the accident, preserve evidence, and build a solid legal strategy on your behalf. At Mike Slocumb Law Firm, we have a long history of success in even the most complex of truck accident cases. Our team is not afraid to take on powerful trucking companies, manufacturers, insurance carriers, and other parties in our pursuit of the full, fair compensation you deserve.
