Truck Accidents

Personal Injury Deserves Personal Service.
GreenbergLaw > Truck Accidents

South Florida roadways and interstates are crowded with commercial trucks used for all types of industries. Tractor-trailers and other loaded large trucks may weigh 20-30 times more than passenger vehicles.

 

Although the size and types of trucks may vary, virtually all are heavier than cars. As trucks increase in size and weight, they also increase in danger to other vehicles and their passengers. According to the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration (NHTSA), tractor-trailers account for a vastly disproportionate number of fatal accidents. The weight of these vehicles, combined with their speed of travel, can easily cause serious accidents that result in life altering injuries or death.

Truck accidents can be caused by a number of factors including, but not limited to:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver negligence
  • Speeding
  • Intoxicated drivers
  • Reckless driving
  • Improper maintenance
  • Overloaded cargo
  • Load shifting due to improper cargo stowage
  • Lack of adequate driver training
  • Poor road conditions
  • Extreme weather conditions

In addition to Florida traffic laws, the trucking industry must also follow federal laws and complex regulations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) regulate the trucking industry and set forth many rules regarding licensing requirements for truck drivers, limits on truck drivers consecutive work hours, insurance minimums that trucks must carry, and many other aspects of the trucking industry. Many accidents result from the failure of truck drivers, carriers, and freight brokers to comply with these regulations.
