Where Do Truck Accidents Happen in Boonville?

Over the years, Booneville has seen a significant number of accidents, shedding light on the need for heightened awareness and legal readiness. With a recorded total of 50 fatal accidents involving 85 vehicles over several decades, including nine accidents with impaired driving at the core, the impact is stark.

These incidents have culminated in 56 fatalities, affecting 128 individuals, including four pedestrians. 

A particular point of concern is South Second Street, emblematic of the challenges present in areas where residential and commercial interests intersect. Such areas are particularly susceptible to accidents.

Also, Highway 4 stands out as a major thoroughfare that demands attention. Serving a wide array of vehicles, including heavy trucks, it is characterized by high-speed travel and a significant volume of traffic, factors that can contribute to more severe accidents. 

Additionally, Prentiss County, where Booneville is located, has seen accidents in other notable locations, including Highway 13 North and MS-13, just outside Prentiss. These areas, like many others in and around Booneville, illustrate the varied and often dangerous conditions drivers face.

Our Focus on Boonville Truck Accidents

At Langston & Lott, we handle a range of accident types, including:

  • Rear-end collisions: Often resulting from sudden stops or reduced visibility.
  • Jackknife accidents: Where the trailer swings out and forms an acute angle with the truck.
  • Rollovers: Caused by sharp turns or loss of control.


Injuries from these accidents can be severe, including:

Fighting the Insurance Company

When you’re involved in a truck accident, insurance companies, in their quest to protect their bottom line, have a toolkit of strategies they use to devalue or outright deny claims. At Langston & Lott, we’re well-versed in these tactics and are committed to ensuring our clients receive fair compensation. 

Here’s a closer look at the ways insurance companies may try to minimize your claim and how we can help counteract these efforts:

Disputing Liability

Insurance companies often start by questioning who is at fault for the accident. They might argue that the evidence is not clear or even suggest that you share a portion of the blame.

Our legal team is skilled in gathering and presenting evidence that clearly establishes liability, ensuring the responsibility is accurately assigned.

Minimizing Injuries

Another common tactic is to minimize the severity of your injuries. Insurance adjusters may claim that your injuries are not as serious as you state or that they were pre-existing conditions.

We work closely with medical professionals to document the full extent of your injuries and their impact on your life, countering any attempts to undermine the seriousness of your condition.

Delaying the Process

Insurance companies may also try to wear you down by delaying the claims process. This can pressure you into accepting a lower settlement out of desperation.

Our firm is experienced in dealing with these delay tactics, ensuring that your case moves forward in a timely manner and keeping the pressure on the insurance company to settle fairly.

Lowball Settlement Offers

It’s not uncommon for insurance companies to offer a settlement that is far less than what your claim is actually worth. These lowball offers are made in the hope that you will accept them just to close the case quickly.

Our attorneys are skilled in negotiations and will fight to ensure that any settlement offer reflects the true value of your losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Our Approach

At Langston & Lott, we take a comprehensive approach to fighting for our clients. We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll a truck accident can take on an individual and their family.

Our goal is to alleviate some of that burden by handling the legal side of things and fighting for the compensation you deserve.

We leverage our knowledge, experience, and resources to build a strong case on your behalf. From investigating the accident and gathering evidence to negotiating with insurance companies and, if necessary, representing you in court, we’re with you every step of the way.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, don’t go down the challenging road ahead alone. Let Langston & Lott be your advocate and ally in securing the compensation you need to move forward.
