Truck safety is a key consideration for Floridians and people across the United States. There are basic concerns to address for those who share the road with these large vehicles. Wondering if the trucker is distracted, under the influence, is prone to reckless behavior, is drowsy and other potential dangers is natural.
Sharing the road with large vehicles can put people who are in passenger vehicles in jeopardy for serious injuries and death. Trucks are intimidating for a reason. They travel at significant speeds, their size can cause hefty damage, and drivers might be behaving illegally or recklessly. For people who have been hurt or suffered the loss of a loved one in truck accidents, having legal assistance is often critical for securing sufficient compensation.
When Floridians think of truck accidents, they will automatically imagine a collision between a large 18-wheel semi-truck and a passenger vehicle with all the negative connotations that go with such a crash. This is a natural reaction as many truck crashes happen in this way. However, there are other ways in which people can suffer injuries because of a truck.
