Trucking collision statistics throughout the U.S. are alarming. According to the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), the roads of the United States, including Florida, are the home to over 140,473 truck accidents every year. Of these total truck accidents, a high number end in fatalities, with statistics putting the number of deaths due to truck accidents at about 5,000 each year.

Truck accident litigation involves claims against negligent truck drivers and the trucking companies who hire them is complex. Under the laws of Florida and most states, a driver of a large truck is considered to have an even greater standard of care than other drivers, because of the injuries that their large trucks can cause. Collisions caused by a truck’s failure, faulty inspection and maintenance, or a truck driver’s negligence, can lead to catastrophic injuries.

Truck drivers break federal laws by driving:

  • While fatigued,
  • In excess of the amount of hours they are allowed to drive,
  • At an excesive speed,
  • With overloaded or oversized trucks,
  • Improperly maintained trucks.

To protect your legal rights following truck accident, it is wise to consult a personal injury law firm with experience in truck accident litigation as soon as possible. Within the first week, important physical evidence can be lost, and witnesses may become hard to find.
