Crashes involving trucks and commercial vehicles are some of the most devastating types of accidents that take place on our roadways. A Florida truck accident can result in death or serious injuries to victims in a matter of seconds. Commercial vehicles are large and powerful and crashes have a much greater impact compared to other smaller vehicles. A commercial truck accident presents complicated questions of legal liability that must be addressed by an attorney.
Our most sincere condolences go out to the victim's family following this tragic truck accident in Hialeah.
