West Palm Beach Truck Accident Lawyer
Sharing the road with large commercial trucks, such as 18-wheelers, is an inevitability for almost all drivers. Unfortunately, because of the sheer size and weight of these vehicles, even seemingly minor collisions can result in devastating injuries, property damage, and in the most serious instances, death. Even with all of the modern safety equipment that passenger cars contain, the size difference between a passenger vehicle and a commercial truck means that, in the event of an accident, motorists can suffer a range of losses that could affect them for the rest of their life.
In the state of Florida, there are as many as 500 truck accidents every month, resulting in hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries.
