A reportable crash occurs in Florida every 92 seconds. While many crashes involve regular passenger vehicles, crashes involving semi trucks can and do occur on a daily basis. A crash with a semi-truck or other commercial vehicle tends to be severe and catastrophic in nature.
Semi-truck crashes must be carefully investigated to determine their cause. If the truck driver was at fault, their insurance company may be responsible for compensation of injuries sustained in the crash. Trucking accident cases can be extremely complicated. An experienced Florida truck accident attorney can locate the proper insurance provider and obtain payment for you.
