Truck Accident Attorney
Hallandale, with its beaches, boardwalks and scenery is becoming ever more popular, particularly amongst retirees. However, as the population expands, so does the volume of traffic on the roads, including the most enormous and cumbersome of commercial vehicles and semi-trucks.
Before a driver can take control of a semi-truck or big rig, they are generally required to have at least two years of driving experience, as well as a commercial driver’s license. There is good reason for these limitations being imposed as the size and weight of trucks can make them difficult to maneuver and, in some cases, prone to toppling. With a large tractor-trailer weighing around 80,000 pounds, which is around 18 times the weight of an average car or SUV, their stopping distances are significantly longer, and the consequences of collisions more severe.
