Risks Posed by Trucks and Your Florida Truck Accident Lawyer

 

 

Florida Truck Accident LawyerHighway motorists in the United States are killed by truck related accidents at a rate of one every sixteen minutes. Truck accidents are different because they are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier safety regulations rather than the “rules of the road”. Truck drivers are required to know and truck-driving companies are required to teach these regulations.


If you have been involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer, your Florida attorney will need to obtain and preserve documents that the trucking company is responsible for keeping.

 

Truck accidents are most often the results of improper business practices rather than individual driver error. When a company puts their drivers under stressed conditions, the risks to other motorists increase dramatically.
