If you have ever traveled on one of Florida's many highways, you have certainly encountered trucks on the road alongside you. With large commercial trucks occupying the same highways as passenger vehicles, truck accidents are an unfortunate reality.
From inadequate training to over-sized cargo to driver fatigue and beyond, truck accidents can be caused by a host of different factors. Additionally, due to the size of commercial trucks, truck accidents can result in serious and permanent injuries, such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries (“TBI”), spinal cord injuries, paralysis, amputation, and even death.
Further, trucking companies and their insurers, who understand the immense damages that can ensue following a truck accident, are known to take swift action by sending a team of professionals to the crash scene to collect evidence and minimize their exposure. Having an experienced attorney out in front from the beginning can make a huge difference in terms of the ultimate outcome of the case.
