According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there were 10,973,214 large trucks registered in the United States in 2009, and 56,000 of them were involved in collisions. A total of 74,000 people were injured in truck crashes, in addition to 3,619 who lost their lives. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) reports that this state saw 6,293 semi-truck accidents in 2010, a figure which includes 1,945 injury crashes and 140 fatalities. According to the FMCSA's Large Truck Crash Causation Study, 87 percent of all truck accidents are caused by errors on the part of a driver, in addition to 10 percent which are the result of problems with the vehicle.

Truck drivers commonly cause accidents in the same ways that drivers cause car accidents, such as by speeding, denying right of way, and being distracted behind the wheel, but they are also liable to cause crashes in unique ways which have to do with the nature of their vehicles. For example, a trucker who suddenly hits the brakes too hard may cause a jackknife accident, since the truck trailer may pivot on the hitch and swing forward, trapping smaller vehicles between it and the truck cab and presenting a barrier across the roadway. Similarly, 18-wheelers are especially prone to rollover, such as when the driver rounds a corner or makes a turn at too great a speed or stays on the road when there are strong crosswinds buffeting the trailer.

We can assist with all types of truck accidents, including:

How to Win Your Truck Accident Claim

Proving your truck accident claim depends on being able to demonstrate that the truck driver is responsible for causing your accident, and this can be accomplished in many ways. The trucker may have been cited for committing a traffic violation, or perhaps witness accounts may serve to establish that the trucker was at fault.

An investigation of the records may demonstrate that the trucker was driving while fatigued, in violation of the FMCSA's hours of service regulations, or that the truck did not receive the required equipment inspections and maintenance. The key to success is to hire a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney as early as possible to allow sufficient time to prepare your claim.
