Causes of Truck Accidents
Commercial truck drivers are required by law to receive special training before they can be licensed to drive on the streets and highways of Miami, as they are simply far more dangerous than normal passenger vehicles. Weighing up to 80,000 pounds, they take longer to come to a full stop, especially at highway speeds, and they are exceptionally prone to blind spots. Truck accidents occur for a variety of reasons, but when the driver’s negligence is a factor, the victims have a right to demand compensation.

Any driver has a duty to avoid causing accidents, but this is especially true for truckers. Many truck accidents occur as a result of a tired driver’s attempts to meet stiff delivery deadlines by dangerously exceeding federal regulations for the length of time a trucker can be on a road in any 24 hour period. Others can be attributed to carrying excess weight, making the truck difficult to handle, as well as faulty or under-maintained equipment. Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers can become exceptionally difficult to handle during heavy rain or snow, on icy roads and in high winds, and the driver has a responsibility to pull off the road at these times.
