Clearwater Florida Truck Accident Lawyer

For many truck accident victims,the consequences are devastating and often, fatal. Although trucks come in various sizes including tractor-trailers, semi tractor-trailers or 18 wheelers, what they all have in common is that they are large and heavy motor vehicles. Due to their large size and weight, whenever a truck is involved in an accident with a car, pedestrian, motorcycle or bicycle, the truck driver is likely to come out of the accident unscathed while the victim is severely injured.

Negligence, driver fatigue, inattention, distraction and speeding are some of the causes of truck accidents. In addition, truck drivers are required to have specialized training in truck driving safety and precautions. When trucking companies fail to ensure that the drivers they hire are properly trained, they could be responsible for any resulting accidents.
