Causes of Big-Rig Accidents

Garcia & Artigliere

Statistics show that the State of Florida has about 3,000 big-rig accidents each year. Reasons include driver fatigue, following too closely, speeding, failure to stay in one lane and not paying attention to vehicles on the road. An accident with a truck this size can lead to serious injury and sometimes death.

Other reasons for accidents include construction zones, equipment failure and violations of Florida and Federal trucking regulations. Keeping the truck maintained is one of the most important regulations that are required. This includes checking brakes, tires, mirrors, etc.

If you are a victim of a serious trucking accident due to someone else’s negligence, contact an experienced Truck Accident Attorney who will investigate the accident and protect your rights.
