Fatal Trucking Accidents in Tampa FL
Passengers traveling in personal cars may suffer life-altering or even deadly injuries as a result of the impact of a huge truck. Truck drivers are frequently on the road for long periods of time, which leads to irresponsible and reckless judgments while operating a massive rig. Trucks deliver the majority of freight in the United States, and these large vehicles are frequently seen on Florida highways. Every year, almost 500,000 semi-truck incidents occur, resulting in thousands of fatalities. In 2009, passenger-vehicle occupants were involved in over 67 percent of the 4,119 transportation fatalities reported. The rate of deadly trucking accidents has continued to rise across the country.
