Millions of tons of products travel across the United States in commercial vehicles like trucks every single day. Florida is one of the states in our nation with the largest trucking industry.

For the most part, these items get to their destination safely and without issue. However, the few accidents that do happen involving trucks make big news — and they can have truly devastating consequences.

Out on the open road, a commercial truck is easily the largest vehicle most people encounter. Even the most brief “blip” in the operation of such a vehicle can be disastrous.

If you have been in an accident involving a truck, you need legal representation that will pursue your rights aggressively and not allow your situation to be “swept under the rug.”

Truck Drivers Are Held To Higher Standards Than Other Motorists In Florida

Anyone who wants to become a trucker or operate another commercial vehicle generally needs to get a commercial license. That involves training and obligations that go “above and beyond” what the average motorist has to be concerned about.

That being the case, an accident brings truck drivers under scrutiny. Even if you believe that you might have been responsible for an accident, it’s important to make sure a commercial vehicle operator did not contribute to it.

A truck river might contribute to an accident in multiple ways:

1) Unsafe Driving Practices
In the last few years, a lot of attention has been given to the way truckers practice their craft on the road. It was not that long ago when many trucking companies were insisting on unreasonable working hours and deadlines, and some truckers may have compromised their safety and the safety of others to cope. Driving without adequate rest or while using strong stimulants can be dangerous.

2) Inadequate Maintenance
Large trucks require regular maintenance to operate successfully — they are even more sensitive to maintenance issues than smaller cars. Truckers should do their best to look after the condition of their vehicle. In some cases, the trucking company might also have a great deal of responsibility for maintenance, so the company might be found to have contributed to an accident if maintenance is poor.

3) Aggressive Driving Practices
Aggressive driving by truck drivers is a serious hazard for others on the road. If truckers do not practice care, foresight, and courtesy, they can easily “trap” motorists in situations where the likelihood of an accident is significantly enhanced. This is a particularly important issue on Florida’s highways, many of which are notorious for traffic accidents.

Naturally, the majority of truckers are safe and conscientious drivers of their vehicles. Whether a lapse is momentary or systematic, however, a truck-related vehicle accident can impact victims for the rest of their lives.
