Trucking in Florida
Florida is one of the most highly trafficked states for large commercial trucks. Numerous highways, expressways and interstates weave through the state as commercial truck routes including US 1, the Florida Turnpike and US Highway 27. Depending on their needs, truckers use other roads as well, such as I-10, I-75, I-95, I-295, I-4, Highway 19, Highway 301, or Highway 98 in northern Florida, and I-275, I-595, Highway 41 or Highway 441 in southern Florida.
Trucks use roads throughout northern Florida to access major urban areas, such as Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tallahassee and Orlando. In southern Florida, major urban areas are linked to ports in by superhighways in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa and West Palm Beach.
How We Can Help You
Our Florida truck accident lawyers are committed to representing people who have been injured in truck accidents. We can handle all types of truck accidents, including:
- Jackknife accidents can take place in all conditions, not just bad weather. If a truck driver does not properly apply the brakes, the trailer can continue to move, even though the cab is coming to a stop. The out-of-control trailer is nearly unstoppable. This is called “jackknifing.”
- Underride accidents take place when trucks stop suddenly, causing the cars behind them to continue under the body of the trailer. Underride accidents cause severe injuries and wrongful death.
Our attorneys also conduct a thorough investigation into how the truck accident happened and what entities should be held responsible. Whatever caused the injuries to you or your loved one, whether it was driver fatigue, reckless driving, unsecured loads or any other type of negligence, we will handle your case with a commitment to honesty, integrity and professionalism.
