18-wheeler or semi-truck accidents in Florida inherently carry a much greater risk of serious injury or death. Sheer size makes these vehicles extremely dangerous. They also spend most of their time on the highway or interstate, moving at fast speeds, further raising the severity of any accident. Driver fatigue is a chronic problem in the trucking industry where the incentive is high to log as many hours as possible every day. An experienced Florida truck accident attorney can properly identify possible acts of negligence and help you secure the maximum benefits for your claim.
