A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, so it's not hard to see why so many trucking accidents result in serious injury or death. Another troubling fact: Many of these big trucking companies have a lot of money to spend to fight the "little guys" in court.
Florida happens to be #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 barreling down our roadways in Zephyrhills. Have you or a loved one suffered injury or wrongful death due to a trucking accident in Zephyrhills, Florida? Then let our experts go to work for you! The team at Lowman Law Firm cares about this community, and offers a free consultation – and you never pay until we win your case.
Who's At Fault?
Put Our Zephyrhills 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.
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.
