At this most wonderful time of the year, there are many things that bring people joy, but it also is a time when there are increased commercial truck accidents because of the increased volume of trucks on the road. One of the reasons for the increased large truck traffic is the numerous products that are shipped around the country, as well as the increased inventory in many stores hoping to attract shoppers. When the high number of trucks is compounded by millions of Americans who are traveling for the holidays, there are many horrific crashes.
When there is a higher volume of commercial trucks and passenger vehicles on the road, the risk of accidents increases significantly. After an accident has led to injuries, it is important to contact the right attorneys in order to get the compensation necessary to recover from the crash. The knowledgeable Miami car accident lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. have more than 130 years of experience in fighting to get our clients justice after a serious accident.
According to statistics compiled by the United States Department of Transportation, there is an increase of more than 20 percent in traffic over the holiday season. Nationally, more than 10 percent of all vehicle accidents involve tractor-trailers or other commercial trucks. There is a greater risk of serious injuries when there is a large truck involved. All of these factors create a dangerous situation over the holiday season.
