Commercial Truck Accident and Injury LiabilityCommercial Truck Accident and Injury Attorney Serving All of Central Florida and the surrounding counties
There are Federal Trucking Laws and Regulations that govern the trucking industry. These laws include safety regulations designed to ensure the safe operation of Semi-Trucks, Tractor Trailers and other types of commercial vehicles.
Despite these laws and regulations, the number of trucking related accidents and crashes has increased by approximately 20 percent over the last 20 years, accounting for more than 5000 fatalities in the year 2012 alone.
A truck driver’s negligence while operating a vehicle can have severe, even fatal, results. Trucking accident and injury cases are often more complicated than those not involving a commercial truck. The trucking cab may be owned by one party, while the trailer may be owned by another company. And it’s not uncommon to see the blame being passed between the truck driver’s insurance carrier, the trucking company’s insurance carrier, the trailer owner’s insurance carrier and any other insurance carrier that may be involved.
