Stats About Truck Accidents in Florida
Every year, commercial trucks are involved in thousands of accidents in Florida. In 2019, these accidents resulted in almost 350 deaths. That lands Florida as #3 in commercial truck accidents in the U.S., only surpassed by California and Texas. Truck accidents are a serious problem in our state, and victims of these accidents need high-quality legal representation when they are injured and facing a lifetime of disability.
Causes of Truck Accidents
There are many potential causes of truck accidents, but the most frequent cause is by far human error. According to one study, human error accounts for almost 87% of commercial truck crashes. The federal government has mandated regulations to prevent some of these errors, but protocols are often ignored in truck accident cases. Driver fatigue is of particular concern in commercial trucking, as drivers often spend long hours on the road without proper sleep. Other causes include mechanical failure, poorly maintained roadways, poor weather conditions, intoxicated driving, and lack of experience.

Determining Fault in Tampa Commercial Truck Accidents
Faults in commercial truck accident cases can be very complex. Truck accident cases often have more than one responsible party. The driver of the truck or other vehicles involved in the accident, the owner of the truck, the owner of any trailers, a fleet maintenance company, or even the logistics company that plans the truck’s routes could all be at fault. We’ll help you figure out exactly where the blame lies, so you can take the appropriate parties to court and get the help you need after the accident.
Every truck accident case is different, so it’s impossible to say exactly how much you will receive for your truck accident injury claim. The judge will consider many factors when deciding how much to award you for your case, including:
- Severity of injuries
- Impact on quality of life
- Permanent disabilities
- Effect on earning ability
- Partial fault of injured parties
Other factors can also be considered, depending on the details of the case. For a better estimate of the value of your truck accident case, contact Esposito Law in Tampa at 877-ESPO-LAW to schedule your free consultation.
