Earlier this week, there was a tractor-trailer crash in Madison County. According to WJTV News Channel 12, the incident happened on Interstate 55 at about 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Apparently, a car stopped suddenly in front of the big rig. The driver of the commercial truck tried to avoid hitting the car, and the big rig overturned in the roadway. Thankfully, the driver was not injured, but the industrial parts being shipped by the large truck were spilled across the Interstate.

Overturned Big Rig on I-55

The semi truck was reportedly going from Memphis to Jackson at the time of the crash. The wreck had traffic backed up on the interstate near the Gluckstadt Road exit. Portions of I-55 had to be closed as first responders and crews worked the scene. The truck had to be set up right before it could be towed from the scene. Very little information has been released about this crash, and there's no word on the other driver involved.

Semi Truck Accidents in Jackson

Thankfully, the driver was okay in this crash and no other injuries were reported. Accidents involving commercial trucks can often times be devastating and catastrophic for other drivers on the road. These trucks are much larger and heavier than other cars on the road, and drivers have to comply with a variety or federal regulations for safe operation. Big rig accidents in and around the Jackson, Mississippi area can leave victims in the hospital, out of work or worse. Your first step after any kind of trucking accident should be contacting an experienced personal injury attorney.

What to do After a Truck Accident

Since truck accidents do require additional investigative efforts, it's a good idea to speak with a lawyer after your accident. It can take time to determine liability in a truck accident case.

Officials with the Mississippi Department of Transportation were expected to be on the scene cleaning for hours.

Big Rig Accidents in Jackson

Combine their weight and size with added fuel or the transport of hazardous and flammable materials, and you have a vehicle that needs to get where it's going, safely. Commercial truck drivers and owners have to follow federal regulations regarding hours, speeds, hazardous material transportation and a variety of other issues that are absolutely vital to keep these trucks safely on the road. If drivers and commercial truck owners aren't following the laws, they're putting everybody on the road at great risk.

EXPUNGEMENT: Erase Your Past

Have you or your loved ones ever been arrested, convicted, charged with a crime, or been charged with a crime and had the charge dismissed or remanded? Under Mississippi law, the record of that arrest or charge may be expunged. The term "expungement" is just a fancy legal term that means "erasing" your criminal record. There are times in everyone's life when they do things without thinking about future consequences, and those poor or silly choices can comes back to haunt them with a vengeance when they apply for schools, loans, or jobs. These mistakes are often just distant memories to the individual, but to a potential employer, Loan Company, or educational institution that runs a background check, they can be much more serious. And a criminal conviction will take away the right to vote in some instances, the right to hold office, the right to possess a weapon and go hunting.

Even if you are charged and do not get convicted, there is a haunting record of your arrest. Some people may ask, how is this possible? Didn't the judge and prosecutor dismiss or drop the charges because you agreed to go to counseling, mandatory education classes, paid the fines, or you completed all the court asked so you would not have a criminal record? Although, the judge may have dismissed your case or the prosecutor dropped the charges, if you were ever arrested, your "arrest" is recorded and will show up in a background check unless you get it expunged. Having a criminal record is like having a dark shadow always following you. In today's work climate, a person needs a record that is clean if he/she hopes not to start the job search ahead of the next person.

An expungement erases from your record all history of the arrest or conviction. When the attorneys at Coxwell & Associates handle an expungement they personally make sure the Mississippi Criminal Information Center (MCIC) and all arresting agencies get a copy of the expungement. The MCIC then forwards the expungement to the F.B.I. and the National Criminal Information Center to clear the person's record. In addition, at Coxwell & Associates they are able to help you get your record erased from a dozen or more private companies that keep databases of arrests and convictions. As a result, an employer conducting a background check should not be able to locate your previous offense or arrest record since it has been expunged. Under Mississippi law, an expungement will restore a person to the same status before the arrest and charge. The person may not be found guilty of perjury for not mentioning the arrest or conviction.

MISDEMEANOR EXPUNGEMENT

A misdemeanor arrest or charge can be expunged from a person's record in Mississippi. A misdemeanor is a "minor" crime, or one which does not result in prison time. A misdemeanor can carry up to a year in the County Jail and a fine. So, misdemeanors are not really "minor" crimes. The majority of people who encounter the criminal justice system are charged with misdemeanors and these charges can be devastating on a person's future.

First Offense: Pursuant to Miss. Code Ann. §99-19-71(1), "Any person who is convicted of a misdemeanor, excluding a conviction for a traffic violation, and who is a first offender, may petition the justice, county, circuit or municipal court in which the conviction was had for an order to expunge any such conviction from all public records."
There are some situations that provide for expungement of additional misdemeanor convictions obtained in municipal court. Miss. Code Ann. § 21-23-7(6) provides that upon prior notice to the prosecuting attorney and upon a showing in open court of (1) rehabilitation, (2) good conduct for a period of 2 years since the last conviction in any court and (3) that the best interest of society would be served, the court may, in its discretion, order the record of conviction of a person of any or all misdemeanors in that court expunged.

Non-Adjudication: Under Mississippi law a misdemeanor charge that has been non-adjudicated shall be dismissed upon successful completion of court-imposed conditions. Upon dismissal, Mississippi law directs the Court to expunge the record upon petition to the Court. However, Courts and prosecutors do not expunge or erase your record for you. You must do it yourself.

Expungement after Dismissal or No Charge: Mississippi law requires the Court, upon petition, to expunge the record in which an arrest was made, the individual was released and the case was dismissed or the charges were dropped or there was no disposition of the case or the individual was not formally charged within 12 months of being arrested.

Expungement of Minor in Possession Charge: A minor in possession of light wine and beer conviction may be expunged in certain circumstances but no "sooner than one (1) year after the dismissal of the charge or completion of any sentence and/or payment of any fine." Miss. Code Ann. § 67-3-70(6).

DUI EXPUNGEMENT

Upon 5 years after successful completion of all the terms and conditions of the sentenced imposed by the court, the individual can petition the circuit court were convicted to have the DUI expunged if (1) it was a first offense DUI under Miss. Code Ann. §63-11-30(2) or (3); (2) the individual is not a holder of a commercial driver license holder (CDL); (3) the individual did not refuse to submit to a blood or breath test; (4) the individual's blood alcohol concentration level (BAC) tested below .16% (if available); (5) the individual has not been convicted or does not have any pending charges of DUI; and (6) the individual provides the court with justification of why the DUI conviction should be expunged. This right to expungement is relatively new. It became the law in 2014.

FELONY EXPUNGEMENT

Some felony charges can be expunged, even after a guilty plea or a conviction. Any felony charge that was dismissed, not prosecuted or the individual was found not guilty can be expunged.
Expungement of Certain Felonies: Mississippi law allows for the expungement of the following felony convictions:

An individual is only eligible to expunge one of the above felony convictions. Any person convicted of one of the above felonies must wait 5 years from the successful completion of all terms and conditions of the sentence before petitioning the court for an expungement. Miss. Code Ann. § 99-19-71(2) (a).
Expungement of Felonies Committed While Under the Age of 18: Mississippi law allows for the expungement of additional felony convictions if committed while the person was under the age of 18. In such cases, any one felony conviction may be expunged except for the following:

10. Any felony that, in the determination of the circuit court, is a violent crime or felony that is related to the distribution of a controlled substance and in the court's discretion such should not be expunged.
An individual is only eligible to expunge one felony conviction committed while under the age of 18. Any individual with such conviction must wait 5 years from the date of successful completion of all terms and conditions imposed in the sentence before expungement is available. Miss. Code Ann. § 99-19-71. Beginning July 1st, 2015, a person who received a felony conviction under the age of twenty-one (21) may obtain an expungement.

Expungement for Non-adjudication or Pretrial Intervention: When a felony charge has been non-adjudicated, Mississippi law allows that upon successful completion of the court imposed terms and conditions, the charge is to be dismissed. Upon dismissal of the charge and upon petition to the Court, the law instructs the Court to expunge the record.

Expungement after Dismissal or Case Retired to File: Mississippi law requires, upon petition, the Court to expunge the record of any case in which an arrest was made, the individual arrested was released and the case was dismissed or the charges were dropped or there was no disposition of the case. Miss. Code Ann. § 99-15-26 (5) or §99-19-71(4).

Crimes That Cannot Be Expunged: Mississippi law does not allow for expungement of the following crimes.

1. Sex offenses. If an individual is required to register as a sex offender, the underlying conviction cannot be expunged. Miss. Code Ann. § 45-33-55.
2. Violent Crimes
1. Attempted Murder
2. Aggravated Assault
3. Manslaughter
4. Killing of an unborn child
5. Kidnapping

Motorcyclist Killed in Jackson Crash

coxwell-logo-9_v2 (8).jpg
On Thursday morning, a motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Jackson. According to WAPT News Channel 16, the wreck happened at the corner of Woodrow Wilson and Bailey Avenues. For currently unknown reasons, 22-year-old Torrance Jackson's motorcycle crashed into a Dodge Ram truck. Apparently, the truck was turning onto Woodrow Wilson Avenue at the time of the crash. Very few details have been released about this collision, which is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement authorities.

Motorcycle Crashes Across The U.S.

Motorcycle riders are one of the most vulnerable roadway user groups. Unlike traditional passenger vehicle occupants, they don't have the added protection of seat belts, air bags and steel cages. They aren't fully enclosed and they're only on two wheels. Roadway hazards that might not be a big deal for drivers could be life threatening for bikers. Even a pothole could be deadly if a motorcyclist doesn't have the room to maneuver around it. Since motorcyclists are one of the few roadway user groups that still continue to see a rise in injury-causing and deadly crashes, motorists on the road need to step up their safety measures.

Share the Road With Motorcycle Riders

Sharing the road and looking twice to save a life are two great ways to improve roadway safety for motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians. The most important theme to remember is to pay attention. Distracted driving has become an epidemic in Jackson and around the country. If you're looking at your phone, you're definitely not looking out for motorcyclists or other motorists. Don't get too comfortable on smaller roads either. Motorcyclists are just as vulnerable going 35 miles per hour as they are on the interstate. Even a seemingly minor crash can be devastating or deadly for a motorcycle rider.

Motorcycle Accidents in Jackson

With warm summer weather on the horizon, more and more bikers will be taking to the roadways. It isn't always enough to wear helmets and ride defensively. Drivers need to share the road too. This means 'looking twice' for motorcycles and committing to distraction-free driving.

The team at Coxwell & Associates, PLLC sends their deepest condolences to the family members and friends of Torrance Jackson. We also wish motorcycle riders across the city safe travels this summer and all yearlong.

SUV Driven Into Wall in Jackson

On Wednesday, a crash in Jackson sent a Hinds County Youth Court employee to the hospital. According to WAPT News Channel 16, the incident happened on Terry road. The driver reportedly lost control of his SUV, drove through a church parking lot and traveled another 150 yards before striking a tree and a wall outside of the Carmelite Monastery. At this time, there's no word on why the driver, who works as a process server for the Hinds County Youth Court, lost control of his vehicle.

Driver Injured in One-Vehicle Crash

Nuns from the monastery ran outside to assist the victim before first responders arrived. Although he was apparently conscious on the scene, there was some speculation on whether or not he had a medical issue that contributed to the wreck. At this time, we do not know the extent of injuries involved or the man's current condition. The cause of this wreck is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement authorities.

Recovering From a Car Accident

Even seemingly minor car accidents that happen at relatively low speeds can leave victims in the hospital. During this time, you're most likely out of work and wondering how you're going to get the bills paid. Maybe, you're missing work to take care of an injured child or loved one. Depending upon the severity of your injuries, you could be facing a long, expensive and painful road to recovery.

Expenses Associated With Jackson Car Accidents

In addition to initial ambulance and hospital fees, you may need extensive corrective procedures, surgeries or physical therapy before you're back on your feet again. It doesn't matter how good you think you're insurance is, you're going to be spending a lot of money out of pocket.

Fatal Crash on I-20

Early Thursday morning, there was a fatal crash on I-20. According to WJTV News Channel 12, the incident happened near the Bolton exit. At this time, very few details have been released about the wreck, but we do know that 68-year-old Richard Atkinson died in the crash. Apparently a white GMC Envoy was headed eastbound when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The automobile then ran off the roadway. Running onto the median, the driver overcorrected the vehicle and it overturned.

Fatal Crash Still Under Investigation

Atkinson was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and he was ejected from the vehicle. We don't know if any other people were involved in the crash or why the driver of the car initially lost control of the vehicle. At this time, the crash is still under investigation with the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

Click It or Ticket

Tragically, this wreck has happened right in the middle of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) "Click It or Ticket" campaign. In addition to increased enforcement across the nation, the NHTSA is hoping to raise awareness about the dangers associated with failing to buckle up. The Memorial Day weekend holiday is particularly well known for an increase in injury-causing and fatal accidents, so motorists are encouraged to buckle up and drive safe.

U.S. Seat Belt Usage Facts

• The current national seat belt use rate is at 87 percent.
• That means there are still about 27.5 million people who aren't buckling up.
• In 2012, seat belts save an estimated 12,174 people across the country.
• Between 2008 and 2012, seat belts saves an estimated 63,000 lives.

Seat Belt Safety in Jackson

Seat belt safety awareness needs to be a top priority in Jackson and across the state. Raising awareness about the dangers associated with not buckling up is essential for increasing seat belt usage. There are still about 27.5 million lives at risk across the nation. You can't help what other drivers are doing, but you can buckle up.

The team at Coxwell & Associates, PLLC sends their deepest condolences to the family members and friends or Richard Atkinson and wishes everybody safe travels during Memorial Day weekend.

Pedestrian Injured by Semi Truck

Over the weekend, a pedestrian was struck and seriously injured by a semi truck in Jackson. According to WJTV News Channel 12, the incident happened sometime around 3:00 p.m., near the intersection of Gallatin and West Streets. At this time, very few details have been released, but we do know that the victim was unresponsive on the scene. He was transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center for treatment of severe injuries.

Big Rig Hits Pedestrian in Jackson

There's no word on how this wreck happened or if the truck driver has been cited in any way. The cause of this crash is likely still under investigation. They identity of the victim hasn't been announced. Also, no details about the extent of injuries involved or his current condition have been released.

Pedestrian Safety in Jackson

In 2011, 4,432 pedestrians were killed on U.S. roads. Additionally, an estimated 69,000 pedestrians were injured. Pedestrian safety needs to be a top priority for motorists in and around the Jackson Metro area. Pedestrians are a vulnerable roadway user group, and they're counting on the safety and vigilance of motorists.

Accidents Involving 18-Wheelers

Accidents involving 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks can also be devastating for other drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycle riders. They are much larger and heaver than other vehicles on the road, so truck drivers and trucking companies have additional rules and regulations to follow to ensure safety for everybody on the road. Since there are federal regulations involved, truck accident investigations can take much longer than accident investigations involving traditional passenger occupant vehicles.

When to Call a Personal Injury Attorney

If you or somebody you love has been injured in a crash involving a semi truck, contact the skilled lawyers at Coxwell & Associates, PLLC at (601) 948-1600 for an immediate free consultation. Since most truck accident cases involve additional investigative efforts, it's important to have somebody on your team who can keep up-to-date with developments.
