Being involved in a truck accident can change your life forever. Unfortunately, there are tens of thousands of collisions that end in injuries reported across the United States that involve commercial vehicles.
In many cases, victims of truck accidents are forced to go through extensive medical treatment. It is also common for victims to be left with spinal cord injuries, trauma to the head, and even severe compound fractures as a result of their accidents.
Unfortunately, we see many accidents take place that are completely preventable. Far too often, truck accidents take place as a result of speeding drivers trying to make it to their destinations on time. We also see a lot of truck accidents take place as a result of drivers being unqualified to operate the vehicles. Other common factors in truck accidents across Florida include inadequate maintenance, negligent cargo loading companies, and even government entities.
