Accidents involving semi-trucks or commercial trucks are some of the most devastating on the road, given the large size and force of these vehicles when they crash. The injuries suffered by victims in a trucking accident can be life-altering and permanent, which is why it is so important that victims of these accidents are fully compensated for the harm caused. The Benenati Law Firmhas experience in cases where victims have been injured or killed as a result of a commercial truck on the road and will zealously advocate for your personal injury claims.

How Truck Accidents Happen

Truck accidents happen for a number of reasons. One common cause is driver fatigue or distraction. Truck drivers are required to drive long hours and often get drowsy behind the wheel or they get distracted by their cell phone, radio, or other equipment in the truck. Failure to check blind spots also causes many truck accidents in Florida. Commercial trucks have large blind spots on either side where cars can get lost, and if a truck driver does not check before changing lanes, the results can be disastrous. Mechanical and equipment failures also lead to trucking accidents, from tire blowouts to improperly stored cargo. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to review the facts of your case to determine the cause of the accident in your claims.
