Nearly half a million trucking accidents occur each year in the United States. The results of these behemoths colliding with passenger vehicles are often catastrophic.
In the 5,000 trucking accident fatalities that occur yearly, more than 97% of the time, it is the driver of the noncommercial vehicle who is killed. If you have been injured in a truck accident caused by negligence, our Tampa personal injury lawyers at The Florida Law Group can zealously represent you, no matter what caused your trucking accident.
Driver Negligence and Truck Accident Causes
Most trucking accidents are caused by driver error. In fact, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, truck driver error is ten times more likely to be the cause of trucking accidents than any other reason. Possible causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Driving under the influence
- Violation of federal hours of service rules
- Failure to check blind spots
- Improper load distribution
- Incorrect trailer attachment
- Equipment or vehicle defects
- Distracted driving
- Broken bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
- Head Injury
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn Injuries
Truck Accidents Lawyers Hold Drivers Accountable
Deciphering who to hold responsible for your trucking accident injuries is often a complicated process. The various insurance companies involved ricochet blame back and forth in order to sidetrack the issues and avoid being held liable. In addition, a maze of state and federal laws are in place to protect the trucking industry from litigation.

We can see through the deceptive tactics of insurance companies and will hold any and all responsible parties accountable, including:
- The owner of the trailer or truck
- The truck driver
- The individual or business who leased the truck
- Manufacturers of defective trucks and/or trucking equipment
- Cargo shippers
