South Florida residents will flock to Homestead-Miami Speedway for this weekend’s exciting Nascar Sprint Cup Series Finale. In preparation for the exciting event, Miami highways have been filled with large commercial trucks, tractor-trailers and cargo vans heading to the raceway. The increased number of trucks on the roads make the likelihood of a tractor-trailer crash that much more likely over the next few days.
Tractor-trailers, 18 wheelers and big-rigs are huge vehicles that operate at high speeds and could cause tremendous damage and injuries when not operated properly. There are specific federal and state laws that deal with driver qualifications and training, the number of hours a driver can log and how a truck must be maintained. When these laws are not followed, and when a trucking company and its employees put profit ahead of safety, the results can be disastrous.
Miami Trucking Accident Attorneys Greenberg Stone and Urbano have handled numerous cases involving commercial truck crashes. These cases are much different than car accident cases. The injuries are usually much more complex and severe, including spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and death.
