Truck Accidents in Florida
Florida is known for being one of the most popular states for truck accidents out of many other states in the U.S. In fact, Florida is number three on a list of states with the most fatalities stemming from truck accidents. Why are truck collisions so catastrophic? This is mostly due to the fact that these accidents involve some of the largest vehicles on our roads. When a truck driver is not focused on the roads before them or nods off at the wheel due to lack of sleep, an accident can occur in the blink of an eye. It is important that families have legal options after they have suffered these losses.
Because Florida is full of many vast interstates, truck accidents occur in the blink of an eye as these large vehicles dominate our roads. Truck collisions lead to many different severe injuries including spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, and more. Unfortunately, fatal results are all too common as well.
