Types of Trucking Accidents in Brooksville, FL

Florida is #4 on the list of states with the most truckers (about 77,500). That's a lot of big rigs, 18-wheelers, and tractor-trailers that we're sharing the road with every day in Brooksville.

With all these trucks on the road, it's no surprise that trucking accidents are not uncommon in the Sunshine State. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there are nearly 32,000 accidents involving a large truck in Florida each year. A lot of factors can contribute to trucking accidents in Brooksville:

  • Fatigued drivers caused by long-distance hauls with few stops
  • Drivers under the influence 
  • Distracted drivers (texting, eating, etc)
  • Reckless drivers (speeding, tailgating, etc)
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Heavy rains and winds
  • Hazardous road conditions

If you've been involved in a motorcycle accident due to any of these conditions, we can often help!

Who's At Fault?

Put Our Brooksville Trucking Accident Injury Lawyers On the Case!

 

Because of their size and weight, commercial-class vehicles can cause a lot of damage to other vehicles. In fact, 77 percent of those injured in trucking accidents are the drivers or passengers of the smaller automobiles involved in the commercial truck crash. How does this make trucking accidents different from other automobile accidents?

Larger Insurance Payouts

Trucking companies typically have large insurance policies with millions of dollars available to cover truck damage. The average truck accident involving one person can cost about $140,000. Severe truck accidents can cost up to $7 million dollars. Of course, since insurance companies must pay out so much more for trucking accidents, they often try to find ways to get out of paying you. 

More Serious Injuries

Trucking accidents are more dangerous than standard automobile accidents and are more likely to cause major whiplash, head trauma, broken bones, back injuries, and death

Bigger Medical Bills

Truck accidents often result in the victim needing long-term recovery care, longer hospital stays, more time off work, and greater mental and emotional trauma compared to other motor accidents. All of these costs add up over time, and they come with a hefty price tag.

Different Regulations

Commercial truck drivers must adhere to different rules than other drivers. For example, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires truck drivers to submit to alcohol and drug testing, keep logs, regulate their hours, get yearly truck inspections, and more. Some of these regulations can make it more difficult to determine who is liable for the accident.
