Truck Accidents in Florida
Truck accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents due to the fact that they involve such large vehicles. In 2017, approximately 27 people lost their lives in truck accidents and thousands were injured due to these reckless collisions. Truck accidents are especially complex due to the fact that they can involve multiple different at-fault parties and regulations that other accidents do not.
