As the fourth most populated state in the nation, Florida is a heavily-traveled region for semi-trucks, tractor trailers, and other commerce-related vehicles. This can make the roads a dangerous place for passenger vehicles sharing the highways with these types of vehicles.
Trucking companies have an obligation to ensure the safety of their equipment, employees and passenger vehicles on the roadways. Trucking accidents may involve special circumstances, which include:
- Violation of state or federal laws related to load weight
- Driver fatigue
- Texting while driving
- Alcohol or substance impairment
- Driver error/negligence
- Maintenance issues
