Fort Lauderdale Truck Accident Lawyers
Have you been hurt in an accident with a commercial truck?
Truck accidents involving large or commercial trucks, such as tankers,
big rigs, and 18-wheelers can be deadly for the occupants of passenger
cars. Your risk of injury or death when colliding with a commercial truck
is enormous in comparison to the trucker's. These heavy trucks have
tremendous size and weight and often carry additional massive weight in
cargo. When traveling at higher speeds, they can become moving instruments
According to Florida Traffic Crash statistics, in 2010 heavy trucks were involved in 3,329 traffic accidents. Tractor trailers were involved in 2,964 collisions. In Broward County, 23 of these accidents involved fatalities. The causes of such accidents range from speeding to inattention to driver fatigue. Poorly maintained truck equipment, improperly loaded cargo, mechanical failures, and other factors contribute to truck accidents.
