Large trucks routinely travel through Winter Park on I-4, and it is important for drivers to know that a collision with a big rig can cause serious or fatal injuries. Indeed, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), since large trucks tend to weight anywhere from 20 to 30 pounds more than passenger cars, a collision can be devastating. In addition, since 18-wheelers have a greater ground clearance than passenger cars, crashes with large trucks frequently result in a smaller vehicle underriding the truck. Given that it takes trucks a much longer time to brake compared with passenger vehicles, underriding accidents happen more often than they should, and they frequently result in passenger vehicle occupant fatalities.

When a truck driver or another party is at fault for a dangerous trucking accident, the injury victim or her survivors deserve to seek financial compensation.
