We know that most larger trucks you see on the roadways are safe. Consider how many eighteen-wheelers, tractor-trailers, package delivery trucks, garbage trucks, and more you see driving around. These are large, heavy vehicles that can cause major injuries.
For the latest reporting year in Florida, there were hundreds of injuries reported as a result of crashes with large trucks. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says in a new study that in 2017, there were:
The average weight of an eighteen-wheeler is 80,000 pounds. Now consider that the average passenger vehicle weighs around 4,000 pounds. In a truck versus passenger car crash, there will almost always be injuries. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in a truck crash:
These major injuries can lead to massive medical bills and long recovery times for victims. Even more minor injuries like broken and dislocated bones or lacerations can be detrimental for people living paycheck-to-paycheck.
Are you sure you will receive enough from an insurance settlement to cover all of the expenses?
The main causes of large truck crashes revolve around driver errors and vehicle failure. All truck drivers should be properly licensed and trained, should follow all federal and state truck laws, and should never operate while impaired or distracted.
Truck owners and companies must regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles in order to prevent vehicle failure. Companies should never cut costs at the expense of roadway safety.
