Because semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are capable of causing significant property damage and injuries, commercial trucking companies and their drivers must follow very strict federal guidelines when it comes to the operation and maintenance of their vehicles.

Unfortunately, many companies and their drivers cut corners which can result in innocent victims suffering severe injuries or losing the life of a precious loved one in terrible truck accidents. Thankfully, you can hold the person or company responsible for your accident accountable for the harm they have caused with the help of a skilled truck accident lawyer in Fort Lauderdale!

What Are the Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

Truck drivers commonly cause accidents in the same ways that drivers cause car accidents, such as speeding, denying the 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 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:

Florida Truck Accident Statistics

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.

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 truck accident attorney as early as possible to allow sufficient time to prepare your claim.
