Truck Accidents in Florida

While truck accidents are a problem across the nation, they’re particularly prevalent in Florida. Florida and only nine other U.S. states are responsible for half of the country’s fatal truck accidents, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Additionally, with Florida’s long highways, many commercial vehicles are on the road and traveling at high speeds. 

Trucks are far larger and heavier than regular cars, so truck accidents have a significantly higher risk for fatalities than a crash between two passenger cars. The victims of truck accidents often suffer serious personal injuries that impact every aspect of their lives. 

With the high risk of truck accidents in Florida, it’s important to have a trusted legal team by your side. The team at Weldon & Rothman is highly experienced in personal injury cases and will provide the expert legal help that you need after a truck accident. 

Common Types of Truck Accidents

Multiple types of truck accidents are possible out on the Florida roads. The type of truck accident that you experience can impact your injuries and legal case. 

The most common types of truck accidents include:

  • Tire blowouts
  • Jackknifing
  • Rear-end
  • Head-on
  • T-bone
  • Truck rollovers
  • Lost load
  • Blind spots
  • Wide turns
  • Under rise

Truck accidents can stem from many different factors. But when the truck is the reason for the collision, it’s most commonly caused by driver error, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Driving while fatigued, distracted, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol can cause major truck accidents, along with speeding and risky driving behaviors.
