Kendall Truck Accidents
When a tractor-trailer collides with a passenger motor vehicle, the results can be catastrophic. Research conducted by our truck accident lawyers shows that tractor-trailers and other large trucks often weigh some 20 to 30 times more than the average car. These massive vehicles can crush a car, resulting in serious injuries to the occupants inside and at times even death.
South Florida is a bustling place with a number of major highways and a thriving trucking industry. Each day, thousands of trucks will pass through Kendall and the surrounding area.

In 2010, Florida passed a new law allowing commercial trucks to weigh in at up to 88,000 pounds. Previously, Florida, along with most of the United States, put an 80,000 pound limit on trucks traveling in the state. These potentially 88,000 pound vehicles are also up to 75 feet long. When you compare these stats with the average passenger motor vehicle that weighs in at 4,000 pounds, it becomes clear why truck accidents often have such deadly results for the occupants of the car, SUV, or pickup truck.
Some of the most common injuries arising from trucking accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord damage
- Broken bones
- Neck injury
- Amputation or loss of a body part
- Organ trauma
Each of these injuries will lead to considerable medical expenses, time off work, and pain and suffering. Truck accident victims require the assistance of a seasoned truck accident attorney who will fight to ensure they are not left alone to cover the cost of medical and other expenses.Negligence is the Most Common Cause of Truck Accidents
Driver negligence is the most common cause of truck accidents. While most truck drivers are hard workers and well trained, a select few engage in dangerous behaviors that lead to accidents. Negligent actions on the part of the truck driver include distracted driving, driving while tired, speeding, and drug or alcohol use. At times, the trucking company is also responsible for the actions of the driver and could be held accountable for providing a lack of training, pushing drivers to work excessive hours, or not properly maintaining trucks.
Consult with a licensed truck accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident so that your attorney can assist you in uncovering the cause of the accident and holding the negligent parties responsible.Greenberg, Stone, & Urbano, P.A.: Put Our Over 130 Years of Collective Experience to Work on Your Truck Accident Case!
