Trucking Accidents in Florida
Truck drivers often make irresponsible and reckless decisions while driving a massive rig due to long periods of time on the road. Trucks deliver the majority of freight in the United States, and these large vehicles can frequently be seen on Florida highways. Every year, nearly 500,000 semi-truck collisions occur, resulting in thousands of deaths. More than 67% of the 4,119 transportation fatalities reported in 2009 involved passengers.
Semi-trucks are to blame for a slew of fatal car accidents across the country, including here in Tampa. The statistics speak for themselves: trucking accidents 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.
