What is a Personal Injury Accident?
Large commercial trucks, known as tractor-trailers, semis, semi-trailers, flatbeds, 18-wheelers, big rigs and other nicknames, represent a vital part of Florida’s economy as well as a hazard on our state’s highways. The simple fact is that when a passenger vehicle is hit at highway speed by a large truck, which may weigh up to 88,000 pounds in Florida, the passenger vehicle and those in it are likely to be injured or killed. The Florida truck accident lawyers at the Disparti Law Group, P.A., fight for the rights of people injured by negligent truckers and trucking companies. In 2010, there were 3,329 crashes involving heavy trucks in Florida, including 1,821 resulting in personal injury (or 54.7 percent) and 58 that were fatal accidents (1.74 percent), according to the most recent statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
Commercial trucks operate under federal and state regulations pertaining to their safe operation. When regulations are violated and a crash causes injury or death, that’s an act of recklessness on the part of the trucker or perhaps the trucking company. They should be held accountable for the harm they cause.
