Fatal Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Florida
Every year, around 500,000 commercial vehicle accidents occur in the United States. Thousands of individuals are murdered every year as a result of these mishaps. A passenger car was involved in more than 67 percent of all truck-related deaths in 2019. Passengers in passenger automobiles may suffer life-altering or even fatal injuries in the event of a collision with a large truck. Long-haul truckers are more likely to engage in risky and irresponsible behavior.
Nothing can ever compensate for the harm caused to a family member as a result of someone else’s negligence or bad behavior. Your life has altered dramatically, and there’s a chance it’ll never be the same again. It’s critical to hold the person who’s responsible accountable. Although it may be difficult to continue operating after a loss, you only have a certain amount of time in Florida to initiate a case against the responsible party. You lose all rights after that time period expires. You do not have to go through this on your own.
