Trucking Accidents

Large semi-trucks are everywhere on the roadways of Florida. Their sheer size makes them a wrecking ball if they collide with anything else on the road. What would ordinarily be a minor fender-bender with a passenger car, can be a much more severe
accident if a semi-truck is involved. These types of crashes can lead to serious injuries and sometimes even death especially when the other vehicle involved is a passenger car. In addition to their duty to drive in a safe manner that does not cause injury to others on the road, truck drivers and trucking companies must also abide by additional regulations that ordinary “class E” drivers are not subject to. A semi-truck driver’s failure to drive safely and/or failure to abide by Florida regulations can often be the cause of your trucking accident. If you have been injured in an accident involving a semi-truck, call the experienced trucking accident attorneys at Lopez DeFilippo today.
