An Aggressive, Experienced Florida Truck Accident Lawyer - Choose Jeffrey D. DeCarlo
Truck accidents in Miami-Dade County and throughout Florida can be some of the most catastrophic types of traffic accidents. Due to the massive size and weight of 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tanker trucks and delivery vans, these giant vehicles can cause serious damage to smaller cars and motorcycles on South Florida roads. Truck companies and their drivers have a legal and moral obligation to ensure the safety of all other drivers on the road. Unfortunately, sometimes they fail to do so. At the Law Office of Jeffrey D. DeCarlo, P.A., we understand that sometimes truck drivers - and their employers - will put profit over people, cut corners, and jeopardize the safety of others just to make a few extra dollars.
That's not right. Truck accidents often cause serious, life-threatening injuries to other drivers, their passengers, and pedestrians or bicyclists on the street. These accidents often result in broken bones, internal injuries, disfigurement, amputation, and debilitating, potentially fatal injuries to the brain and spinal cord. If a negligent truck driver or a trucking company was behind the cause of the accident, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact a truck accident lawsuit attorney today to discuss your legal options. Call Jeffrey D. DeCarlo, P.A. immediately.
Causes of Florida truck accidents
The U.S. government requires trucking companies to adhere to certain standards. These important standards are designed to keep roads safe and include comprehensive records of maintenance, hour logs for drivers, and safety records of their drivers. When a truck company cuts corners in any way, from pressuring drivers to cover a couple hundred more miles before taking a break to failing to adhere to scheduled maintenance standards of their fleet, drivers who share the road with big rigs are put in immediate danger.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Exceeding the speed limit
- Reckless driving, such as ignoring red lights or stop signs
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
