With more and more traffic on our South Florida roadways these days, there is more chance of being involved in an accident with a truck. There are several reasons for these accidents which include a lack of maintenance of the truck, driver fatigue, weather, and improperly loaded cargo. The truck may jackknife, rollover, or, of all the causes of trucking accidents, driver error is 10 times more likely to be the cause of a crash than any other factor, according to a recent study conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). If you have been injured in an accident with a truck you may be entitled to compensation. That could include recovering for your medical bills and expenses, your lost wages, and the pain and suffering you endured.
