Everyday fatigued, overloaded, unqualified or speeding truck drivers are involved in accidents on Florida interstates, highways and back roads. Accidents involving major trucks, including tractor-trailers, dump trucks, cement trucks and other major construction vehicles can lead to serious injury, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, back and spinal injuries, and even death. Truck accidents can be caused by a number of factors, but almost all truck accidents include multiple vehicles and often involve fatalities. Truck drivers are frequently the cause of endangerment on the road—they knowingly drive unsafe, negligently maintained, or overloaded vehicles, in addition to driving longer hours than is allowed, leaving them fatigued, tired and prone to run off the road or into oncoming traffic. Truck drivers’ decisions to ignore the rules put everyone else on the road in great dangers as their trucks weigh almost twenty times the weight of an average car.
Truck companies owe a duty of care to passengers on the road and they are expected to put safe and well-maintained vehicles out on the road, driven by well-rested, trained and competent truck drivers. When companies breach this duty of care to other drivers, they become liable for the consequences of their truck drivers’ actions. South Florida is consistently listed as one of the areas with the highest number of trucking accidents.
