Truck Accident Attorney
Florida can be a beautiful state to drive around, but it is also home to busy routes used by high volumes 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.
