Semi-Truck Accidents in Florida

Inglis, FL - Five Students Injured After Semi Hits School Bus on US-19In the United States, approximately 500,000 commercial truck accidents occur each year. Thousands of people are killed in these accidents. In 2019, a passenger car was involved in nearly 67% of all truck-related deaths. In the event of a collision with a large truck, passengers in passenger vehicles may suffer life-altering or even fatal injuries. Long-haul truckers are more likely to make risky and irresponsible decisions.

Semi-trucks are involved in a significant number of fatal car accidents across the country, including here in Tampa, Florida. The statistics speak for themselves: trucking accidents in Tampa are extremely deadly, especially when smaller passenger vehicles are involved. Even the most experienced trucker can make a critical error on the road, resulting in a devastating 18-wheeler disaster, despite the fact that rig operators are supposed to prioritize safety. Injured parties should contact a trucking accident attorney in Inglis to seek lost compensation.
