Large tractor trailers are a part of the landscape on Florida’s highways. When involved in crashes these large trucks often cause catastrophic injuries and death due to their size and weight. Trucking accidents happen for a variety of reasons; including, improperly functioning equipment such as brakes, steering, hitches, and lighting. Trucking accidents also frequently occur due to fatigue, impairment and careless or reckless driving. Trucking companies have the resources to hire top notch attorneys to aggressively defend their interest.
If you or a loved one is involved in a collision with a tractor trailer truck you need to act quickly because you are trying to recover from your injuries, the trucking company will be gathering evidence to protect itself. The Federal Motor Vehicle Carrier Safety Regulations ( www.fmcsa.dot.gov ) require trucking companies to retain many documents or items following an accident involving one of their trucks. As a result, trucking companies will often have an investigator at the scene of a crash in a matter of hours to gather evidence and document the scene.
